Jamaican Rene Medley is the National Women’s Track Athlete of the Year for the 2020 NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field season.
Medley, who attends Lincoln University, was announced as the winner on Wednesday (25 March) by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
“This is the first time that an athlete from Lincoln (Mo.) has taken home this honour in award history,” the organizers said in a release. Jamaican Victor Thomas coaches Lincoln.
Medley, a senior from Kingston, Jamaica, was the only female track athlete to lead the nation in two individual events. She held down the No. 1 spot in the 60 with her 7.37 and topped the nation in the 200 in 23.57, which was the fastest mark ever recorded on an oversized track in NCAA DII history.
Medley scored 20 points at the MIAA Indoor Championships when she swept the 60 and 200 by 0.14 seconds and 0.21 seconds, respectively.
