Voorhees athlete qualifies for the 2018 NAIA Indoor Track and Field Championship
Posted By: Elynor Moss on February 20, 2018

Voorhees College track and field athlete James Watson qualifies for the 2018 National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Indoor Track and Field Championships and Penn Relays.

Watson became eligible for the 2018 NAIA Indoor Track and Field championships, which will be held March 1-3 in Pittsburg, Kan., because of his status as a double qualifier for winning the triple and high jump competitions during a recent meet at Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Va.

He won both the triple jump scoring 14.26 meters and the high jump scoring 2.01 meters. Additionally, he is qualified for the 2018 Penn Relays, which will be held April 26-28 in Philadelphia.

Penn Relays is the largest track and field competition, outside of the Olympics, where college and university athletes compete with professional athletes from all over the world in a televised event.

“My coach is highly skilled and has continued to push me to achieve more. With his advisement and my practice efforts I know this is only the beginning. I will continue to strive to win competitions and work my way to the top,” Watson said.

Track and Field Coach Jeffrey Hughes said he is proud of Watson’s accomplishments and said Watson’s work ethic will allow him to progress throughout his college career.

“Watson has great potential to become a national champion. I want him to one day become a nationally known track star, who received his start from Voorhees College,” Hughes said.

Watson, a freshman majoring in sports management is a native of Huger, S.C. The Voorhees Track and Field Team’s next competition will be in Birmingham, Ala. Feb. 16-17 at Samford University.
