McCall Wins National Championship
WSIL -- For the third time in her illustrious career, Jeneva McCall is a national champion.
McCall beat the field in the women's hammer throw Thursday with a toss of 225 feet, three inches at the NCAA Track and Field Championships at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The throw beat Missouri Valley Conference rival Brittany Smith of Illinois State by eight inches.
McCall now has more titles than any other athlete in SIU track and field history. She won the NCAA indoor weight throw title in March and was the discus national champion in 2010. She is a 12-time All-American.
McCall still has more work to do. Friday she will compete in the shot put finals.
