Central State University's Denisha Cartwright selected to USTFCCCA Div. II All-America Team

Central State University
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on June 01, 2020

Central State freshman Denisha Cartwright has been named to the USTFCCCA All-America Team.

Cartwright, who was named to the USTFCCCA South Region Athlete of the Year in February, was scheduled to become the first CSU women to compete in multiple events at the NCAA Div. II Indoor Championships in March prior to the event being canceled due to the public health **** of COVID-19.

Qualifying to compete in the 60 meter dash and 60 meter hurdles, Cartwright was the top ranked 60 meter hurdler in NCAA Div. II with a season-best time of 8.49. She ranked sixth nationally in the 60 meter dash with a pace of 7.48. Cartwright won event titles in the 60 meter hurdles four times and took first place in the 60 meter dash three times throughout the indoor season.

ABOUT THE USTFCCCA & ALL-AMERICA TEAM
The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) is a non-profit professional organization representing cross country and track & field coaches of all levels.



The organization represents thousands of coaching members encompassing NCAA track & field programs (DI, DII, and DIII) and includes members representing the NAIA and NJCAA, as well as a number of state high school coaches associations. The USTFCCCA serves as an advocate for cross country and track & field coaches, providing a leadership structure to assist the needs of a diverse membership, serving as a lobbyist for coaches' interests, and working as a liaison between the various stakeholders in the sports of cross country and track & field.

Normal procedures dictate All-America honors are awarded based on classifications of performance at the NCAA Championships. Due to the cancellation of the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships, the USTFCCCA Executive Committee adopted the following criteria:

- Individual events: All student-athletes listed on the start list for the anticipated event.
- Relay events: The four student-athletes per anticipated relay who produced the performance that was declared and accepted into their event.

A total of 716 honors were handed out to 117 different institutions.
