Bahamian Denisha Cartwright is the NCAA Division Two Athlete of the Week.
Cartwright, who represents Minnesota State, turned in three nationally ranked performances – two of them sitting among the top of the Descending Order List – following season-best efforts at the Ted Nelson Dual.
Cartwright’s best event of the day was the 60H, as she quickly separated herself from the rest of the field to take the victory in 8.62 seconds. Her time takes over the national lead in the event by 0.01 seconds over teammate Mackenzie Keune, giving the Mavericks the top-2 times in NCAA DII.
Later, Cartwright returned on track to win the 200 in 24.42c (24.78), ranked No. 2 on the Descending Order List. She also finished second in the 60 in 7.61 – good for No. 11 in the nation.
This is the first time in program history that a female athlete from Minnesota State has been named National Athlete of the Week during the indoor season.
