Track and Field adds transfer for the 2007 season

July 20, 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Jacksonville University track and field team continues to add depth to the roster as they announce that transfer Shaquania Lundy (Denver, Colo.) has signed a scholarship agreement for the 2007 season.

"Shaq was one of the countries' premiere jumpers out of high school," said JU head Ron Grigg. "Her high school marks of 20'2 and 41' 5 show the talent she possesses. She has been away from the sport for two years, so we will be patient in her development."

Lundy, a transfer from Metro State College of Denver, will join the Dolphins track team after spending the last two seasons on the Roadrunners basketball team. In 2006, she averaged 4.7 points and grabbed 60 rebounds in 22 games as a guard.

In her prep career, Lundy was a state record holder in the triple jump at George Washington High School in Denver, Colo. She also helped the Patriots to a state championship in the 4x100-meter relay.

Lundy joins Kathryn Souviney (East Vassalboro, Maine), Alyssa Deal (Boyers, Pa.), Tiffanie Saxton (Tampa, Fla.), Devin Robinson (Baltimore, Md.), Hillary Crook (Mansfield, Mass.), Emilie Arvidsson (Skondal, Sweden) and Tiffany Broomfield (New Haven, Conn.), who signed earlier in the year with the Dolphins.

In 2006, the Dolphins completed one of the best seasons in school history after taking home the Atlantic Sun Conference Indoor and Outdoor Championships. During the outdoor season, the Dolphins recorded 14 all-conference performances, eight individual conference titles, broke five school records and had eight runners qualify for 18 regional events. Freshman Natasha Harvey also shined by recording one of the best long jumps in the nation at the FSU Twilight (21'5.25") and represented the Dolphins in the long jump at the NCAA National Championship.

The program was recently honored by the USTCCCA as an All-Academic Team for the fifth consecutive year on July 17.
