Sophomore Arielle Shaw of the Oglethorpe track and field team is getting set to compete at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships Saturday afternoon. The Stormy Petrel will take part in the triple jump competition at 1:30 p.m. from the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. It will mark the second consecutive time she's competed at the outdoor national meet in the triple jump competition, as she did so in Waverly, Iowa, in 2016.
Shaw has already enjoyed an outstanding season, earning All-South/Southeast Region accolades from the National Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association for the third time in her career and the second straight time for the outdoor season. She earned All-SAA Second Team honors after finishing second in the triple jump at the SAA Track and Field Championships for the second year in a row, and came away with a total of five top four finishes in the triple jump over the course of the season.
