Women's Final Entries List

Junior Carolyn Webster of The College of Wooster women's track & field team upped her career All-Great Lakes Region nomination total to eight and will be representing the Fighting Scots at this weekend's NCAA Div. III Outdoor Track & Field Championships, hosted by the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in La Crosse, Wis. from May 24-26.

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCA) announced Monday the yearly All-Region lists, with Webster earning nods in the high jump and heptathlon. The USTFCCCA awards all-region certificates to the top five individuals in each event and top three relays from each of the eight regions.

Webster turned in a season-best finish – and tied for third-highest in the region – 5 feet, 5.25 inches in the high jump at the Baldwin Wallace Harrison Dillard Twilight Invitational and claimed All-North Conference Athletic Conference honors with a runner-up finish in the heptathlon (4,129 points), good for the region's fourth-best point total.

This year marks the second straight outdoor national championships appearance for Webster, who has made three prior trips to the top Div. III meet after qualifying for the 2018 and 2016 Indoor Championships in addition to the 2017 Outdoor Championships.
