What I did:
I covered the 2016 and 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. In 2016, I was a part of the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication’s track bureau. In 2017, I covered it as a part of my internship with TrackTown USA.
Here are stories from 2016:
An ankle injury hindered University of Virginia junior Cleo Boyd throughout her entire career. After a ninth-place finish at the 2016 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, she was finally somewhat content.
University of South Dakota’s Teivaskie Lewin, a Jamaica native, faltered early in his 110-meter hurdle race and was unable to qualify for the final. Despite the downfall, he said that it was “a great feeling just to be here.”
