The National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) announced last week that Janell Alyea has been recognized as the week’s NCCAA Women’s Field Athlete of the Week. The award was given for Alyea’s performance in the 2kg Discus at the Hub City Open on Saturday, March 15. At that meet, Alyea won the Discus with a PR of 44.18m / 144’11” – that throw has her ranked #1 in the Nation among NCCAA athletes.
Alyea is not the only athlete at Trinity currently holding onto a #1 NCCAA ranking in Track and Field. Her teammate, and the only other thrower at Trinity this year, Hunter Hammer is the current owner of the #1 overall ranking in the 16lb Shot Put with his 14.26m / 46’9.5” throw, which he also posted last weekend at the Hub City Open.
