Alumni Update: Ashley West (Slippery Rock)

Written by Sports Town on .

Slippery Rock freshman Ashley West was an NCAA Division II All-Atlantic Region indoor track and field selection by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association this week.

West, a Pine-Richland graduate, owns the region's top performance in the high jump with a clearance of 1.74 meters, matching Christina O'Conner from East Stroudsburg. West will compete at the NCAA Division II National Champions on Marcy 9 as the fifth seed at Birmingham, Ala.

In order for an athlete to earn All-Region honors in track and field, they must own a top-five mark for their respective event among all athletes in the region during the current season. The Atlantic Region includes all schools in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
