EUGENE, Ore. – Senior Shanelle DeJournett (Knoxville, Tenn.) of the Brown women's track & field team earned Honorable Mention All-American honors in the high jump at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championship Saturday at Hayward Field on the campus of the University of Oregon.
DeJournett was unable to clear the opening height of 5-8 (1.73m), finishing the competition tied for 23rd overall. Nevertheless, DeJournett ended her standout season and career with All-American accolades, earning one of 24 spots to the NCAA Championship after she placed 11th at the East Preliminary. She secured a spot with a cleared height of 5-10.50, a season best for the outdoor campaign.
DeJournett put together an impressive senor campaign as she previously set the school indoor record in the high jump with a mark of 5-11.25 this past winter. She took fourth overall in the event at the Ivy League outdoor championships and also competed in the long jump at the same meet. A versatile athlete, DeJournett has competed in nine different disciplines throughout her four-year career between the indoor and outdoor seasons.
DeJournett is the third All-American in as many years for the Brown women's track & field team after O'Sha Williams in 2016 (triple jump) and Josie Natrasevschi in 2015 (discus).
