(UDC's)Shauna-Kay Creary Earns USTFCCCA DII All-American Honor

NEW ORLEANS – Shauna-Kay Creary is among those who earned USTFCCCA All-America distinction for the 2012-13 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field season, it was announced Tuesday, May 28th, 2013.
Honors are awarded for performances at the final site of the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championships occurring this past weekend at Pueblo, CO. With a new personal best of 12.36M on her last try during the Triple Jump competition, she was able to jump from 9th to 8thoverall in the finals, and secure her place as an All-American.
"Shauna has capped off a great year with a distinguished honor. It's truly a remarkable achievement this when you consider the fact that she did it with a personal best on the last jump of the competition - in an event she only first tried back in January," head coach Alton McKenzie said. "I couldn't be more proud of this accomplishment, and I'm grateful for the assistance she received from Coach Kevin Bembridge to attain this success. I'm pleased that we all agreed the Triple Jump was an event Shauna could excel in, and I'm glad she made me look like a genius by improving by over two-and-a-half feet during one season to become 8th best in the country! Kidding aside though, I'm very proud and happy for her as she's very deserving of this honor."
Creary (Accounting – Kingston, Jamaica/St. Andrew), after a tremendous 2012-13 year that included not only this All-American honor, but an appearance in the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships in Birmingham, AL and an East Coast Conference Indoor Track & Field Athlete of the Year honor, will return for her senior year at University of the District of Columbia in 2013-14.
