Delores Booth joins the impressive contingent of UMass Boston female track and field Hall of Famers. Booth starred as a sprinter from 1983-87 for the indoor and outdoor track and field squads and also spent a season on the cross country team as a freshman. She was a member of the NCAA indoor championship teams of 1985, '86 and '87, while also helping the Beacons capture the 1986 outdoor crown. Booth helped get UMass Boston's successful run underway when she helped the Beacons to their first trip to the NCAA championships with an appearance and a 52nd place finish in the 1984 outdoor competition and later contributed to a runner-up showing at the 1987 outdoor meet and helped the squad to a fifth place finish in the 1985 outdoor championships as well. Booth became an All-American following the 1985-86 indoor season when she finished seventh at the 1986 NCAA indoor championships in the 55 meters with a time of 7.38 and would go on to set the UMass Boston mark in the 100 meters with a time of 12.20 at the Boston College Relays during the outdoor campaign. Booth earned All-ECAC accolades multiple times and qualified for nationals every year she competed for the Beacons. The 1988 graduate racked up seven top-five finishes and placed sixth in the 100 meters at the 1987 New England outdoor championships.
