NEW ORLEANS, La. – The awards continue to roll in for perhaps one of the greatest sprinters in the history of Division III track and field, as Wadeline Jonathas (Gonaives, Haiti) was named the USTFCCCA New England Track Athlete of the Year for the second straight season.
With that award, Jonathas remains the first and only Beacon to ever earn the major All-Region award. She has now been named the top track athlete in New England in both the 2018 indoor and outdoor seasons.
The favorite to win multiple national championships this week in Wisconsin, Jonathas made history throughout the 2018 outdoor campaign, as she once again rewrote the NCAA Division III record book. The native of Haiti will compete in an unprecedented five events at the national championship, and currently is the top ranked sprinter in both the 200- and 400-meter dashes. She will also be a part of the 4x100- and 4x400-meter relays, and will also compete in the long jump.
Named the Little East Track Athlete of the Year, Jonathas was just named a five-time USTFCCCA All-Region honoree, and earned multiple national track athlete of the week accolades during her sophomore season.
To-date Jonathas owns the program record in the 100-, 200-, and 400-meter dashes breaking the original marks which had stood for over 30 years.
