The Virginia Beach native -- who was also named A-Sun Field Athlete of the Week during the indoor season after breaking ETSU's heptathlon record -- scored 6,618 points and set seven personal bests in the process.
The freshman's seven personal records came in the 100m (11.34), 1500m (4:48.31), 110m hurdles (15.51), high jump (2.01m), shot put (12.23m), discus throw (31.95m) and javelin throw (39.41m).
