COLUMBIA, S.C. – The South Carolina track and field team earned a total of six U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) All-America honors following performances at this past weekend’s NCAA Division I Indoor Track & Field Championships in Albuquerque, N.M.

Senior Jeannelle Scheper earned her second-straight NCAA indoor high jump silver medal with her clearance of 6′ ½” (1.84m). The result gave her a third-straight indoor first-team distinction and fifth certificate overall. She is the only high jump All-American in South Carolina history.

The women’s 4×400-meter relay team of freshmen Precious Holmes, Briana Haith, Marisa Bellamy and sophomore Tyler Brockington garnered first-team nods after their season-best time of 3:33.95 earned them a seventh-place finish. It is the first honor for the three freshmen. It’s the fourth overall for Brockington after she also earned All-America honors for the indoor 4×4 last season as well as the 400-meter hurdles and 4×100-meter relay at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Championships.

Sophomore Sarah Graham also earned her first certificate for her NCAA-debut performance in the pentathlon. The Gamecock scored a strong total of 3,968 points and finished in 16th place for a second team nod.

First-team honors were given to those who placed in the championships’ top eight in an event or were a member of an eight-person final. Second-team honors were earned by those who finished between ninth and 16th place. In addition, 14 men and four women earned honorable mention honors.
