Lee Places Seventh in Long Jump at NCAA Championship
DELAWARE, Ohio — At the NCAA Division III Women's Track and Field Outdoor Championship hosted by Ohio Wesleyan on Thursday, Washington and Lee first-year Dana Lee (Nashville, Tenn./St. Cecilia Academy) placed seventh in the long jump to earn All-America honors.
In the prelims, Lee registered a mark of 5.59m (18'04.25") on her third attempt to advance to the finals. She did not better her mark in her final three tries, but the jump of 5.59m secured seventh-place for the rookie.
Lee had the second-best finish among first-years in the event, with senior Naomi Bates of Amherst winning the competition with a leap of 6.02m (19'09.00"). Lee became the first W&L women's track and field competitor to earn All-America honors since Stacy Doornbos in the heptathlon at the 2009 NCAA Championship.
Lee's finish concludes the 2014 season for the Generals.
