For the second time in three years, Johnson C. Smith has the CIAA's best women's outdoor track and field team.


The Golden Bulls scored 146.50 points to claim first place at the April 20 conference meet at Virginia State, outdistancing Winston-Salem State (108 points) and Virginia State (101). JCSU sophomore Samantha Elliott was named most outstanding performer after winning the 100- and 400-meter hurdles and finishing third in the 100 and the 200 dash.


The Golden Bulls produced 29 points on on the first day of field events. Sophomore Imeshia Jones, senior LaQwesha Gamble and junior Shaquitta Anderson swept the top three spots in the javelin. Jones won with a throw of 38.55 meters in the final. Jones also took fourth place in the shot put with a toss of 11.81 meters.


In the high jump, senior Xahnn-Georgia Reid finished second points with a jump of 1.58 meters for second place.


JCSU dominated the 100 hurdles with Elliott finishing first (13.44 seconds), followed by junior Danielle Williams (13.65), sophomore Monique Lovelock in fourth (14.49), and senior Naffene Briscoe (14.51) in fifth.


Williams, who is unbeaten in the 100 meters and ranked No. 1 in Division II, won the championship in 11.43 as well as the 200 meters (23.56). Elliott also won both hurdles races. The foursome of Briscoe, Williams, freshman Trudy-Ann Richards and Lovelock were victorious in the 4x100 relay (45.31). The combination of Briscoe, Jenkins, Richards, and junior A'Tyan Kennedy of York, S.C., took third in the 4x400 relay with a time of 3:53.31.


JCSU head coach Lennox Graham was named women's outdoor coach of the year.
