Chelsea Johnson Named NCAA Indoor Field Athlete of the Year

March 19, 2006

Senior Chelsea Johnson was named the Women's NCAA Indoor Field Athlete of the Year after winning her second NCAA title in the pole vault last weekend in Fayetteville, AR.

The winners were determined in a vote by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association of American following last weekend's NCAA Division I Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark.

Johnson, who won the NCAA Outdoor pole vault title in 2004 with an NCAA record jump of 15-0, won the indoor crown last weekend with a jump of 14-9 (No. 3 mark in indoor college history). She had three attempts at a new collegiate indoor record of 15-1, but did not clear the height. At the MPSF Championships, Johnson won with a mark of 14-5.25.

This season, Johnson has consistently cleared 14-feet plus during the indoor season and has already opened up the outdoor season with a mark of 14-3.25.

Xavier Carter (LSU), Johanna Nilsson (Northern Arizona) and Trey Hardee (Texas) were also honored by the USTFCCCA for their performances at Nationals. Carter and Nilsson were named the Men's and Women's Indoor Track Athletes of the Year, while Hardee was named the Men's Indoor Field Athletes of the Year.
