With a time of 3:53.52, juniors Makayla Jackson, Rose Cramer, Denisha Cartwright, and Makenna Thurston broke the national sprint medley relay by five seconds. The previous record, 3:58.40, was held by the Mavericks since 2019.
Makayla Jackson won the national 100m dash title and Denisha Cartwright captured the 100m hurdles championship at the 2022 NCAA Division II National Outdoor Finals. It was the first time Mavericks have taken the national title in either event. Jackson and Cartwright joined Ja’Cey Simmons and Rose Cramer to win the national 4×100 relay by 0.02 seconds. The Mavericks took home the third-place national trophy.
Maverick sophomore sprinter Denisha Cartwright heads into the NSIC Outdoor Track & Field Championships ranked among the nation’s fastest NCAA Division II sprinters. The Nassau, Bahamas, native earned her fourth NSIC Track Athletic of the Week this outdoor season following the Deb Schulz Open at Minnesota State Mankato. She is also a member of the Mavericks 400-meter relay team which holds this spring’s top time in Division II.
