rp_primary_TRACK

Sherrelle Jordan, Ryan Jerothe, Vanessa Munley

For the second straight week, the nationally ranked Nova Southeastern University track and field teams took three out of four Peach Belt Conference Track and Field Athletes of the Week honors. Sherrelle Jordan (So., Chandler, Ariz.) and Vanessa Munley (Sr.  Moosic, Pa.) were recognized for the second week in a row, while Ryan Jerothe (Sr., New Port Richey, Fla.) picked up his first honor of the season.

Jordan was recognized once again for improving on her 100-meter hurdles time. She took fourth place in the event at the UCF Invitational, second among collegiate runners and first among DII athletes, with a time of 14.07. Her time in the event provisionally qualifies her for nationals and is the best time in the PBC by .16. She also ran the fourth leg on a 4x100m relay team that is the best in the conference.

In the field, Munley was again recognized as the league’s premier female pole vaulter. This weekend she placed fourth, first among DII athletes, with a vault of 3.50m. Already leading the conference, Munley now ranks in the national top-20. She also placed fifth in the triple jump at 10.80m

Jerothe, an All-American in 2014, had his best performance of the season Saturday, March 28 in the pole vault to take the men’s field honor. He claimed third overall, first in DII, in the event with a mark of 4.95m. Like Munley, Jerothe is top dog in the conference. This week’s vault provisionally qualified him for nationals and placed him fifth in the nation.
