GREENSBORO – Sophomore Nakita Gray has finished in first place in the high jump in the North Carolina A&T women’s track and field team’s first two meets. She was awarded for this week for last week’s first-place finish at the Wake Forest Invitational by being named the MEAC Women’s Field Athlete of the Week.

Gray won with a personal best jump of 5-feet, 10-inches, which has her tied for first place in the MEAC. This jump also tied her for ninth on the NCAA Division I Indoor Qualifying List. In December, during the Aggies first meet Gray took first place in the high jump at 5-feet, 8 ¾ inches.  

Last year, Gray qualified for the NCAA East Division I Preliminary Round as a freshman.
