BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Sophomore sprinter Jothani Dixon has been named an All-Academic Athlete by the U.S. Track and Field/Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).
Dixon was an All-American in the 4x100-meter relay this past spring, helping her team place eighth in the nation. She was also a First-Team All-Conference performer after being a part of the Southern Athletic Association Championship 4x100 team.
"I am so very proud of Jothani and how hard she has continued to work in the classroom as well as on the track," Head Coach Kenneth Cox said. "Her contributions to our women's program have been amazing and I look forward to her continued growth within our sport. I have no doubt that she will continue to make an impact for us here on the Hilltop in the sprints and relays. To be an All-American in both athletics and academics is no easy task and I salute her for an amazing season!"
