On Friday, May 27th, Truett McConnell University’s Myesha Hall of the women’s track & field team was named the 2022 Women’s Track and Field Long Jump National Champion at Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Hall competed in three events at the National Tournament (Long Jump, Triple Jump, Women’s 4x100m Relay), where she won the National Championship title in Long Jump after breaking the TMU program record and setting a new personal record with a mark of 6.15m
Hall opened the event with a mark of 3.34m and recorded the winning mark on her third jump, which ultimately sealed the victory. The next closest mark was from Indiana Tech at 6.14m.
The true freshman was a force to be reckoned with in the regular season and was a key contributor to the women’s track & field historical 2022 season. She recorded three first place finishes in Triple Jump (Life University Invitational, Susan Rouse Invitational, Emory Spring Opener) and three first place finishes in Long Jump (Emory Spring Opener, “Thrills in the Hills”, Appalachian Athletic Conference Tournament), while setting multiple personal and team records throughout the season.
Hall dominated at the AAC Tournament where the Lady Bears earned their best finish in program history (3rd) and individually earned multiple first place finishes: 100m Dash (12.14), 4x100m Relay (47.74), Long Jump (5.77m) and the 200m Dash (25.23), while being named the AAC Female Runner of the Year.
