Focused Tigerbelles Deliver Dominant Performance


NASHVILLE, Tenn. —Chandra Cheeseborough-Guice immediately saw something different out of her team and made it known to the Tigerbelles after a dominant performance at the Hoosier Hills track and field meet on Friday at Indiana University.

“I think we had more people focused and more people hungry today and this week,” Cheeseborough-Guice said. “They were all hungry and really showed up today.”

The hunger of the Tigerbelles devoured several top spots in Bloomington, Ind. Sophomore Zion White blew past the competition in the 400-meter run to finish in first place with a time of 57.63. White was also a part of the Tennessee State women’s “A” team in the 4x400 relay. The team of White, Amber McCroskey, Mikayla Banks, and Lakeia Hill placed first with a time of 3:50.36 in the relay.

Hill also showcased her talent as an individual as she recorded a personal best in the 200m. Hill finished with a time of 24.62 to finish in first place.

The impressive season by Grenetria Shell continued on Friday with two third-place finishes. Shell finished with a time of 8.65 in the 60m hurdles and 5.55m in the long jump.
