SPARTANBURG, SC Feb. 7, 2013 - College of Charleston freshman jumper Roshani Glover earned Southern Conference Field Athlete of the Month honors, as the conference announced the award winners today.
Glover turned in a pair of top-five finishes in the triple jump in January. The Summerville, S.C., native took fifth place at the Tiger Challenge on Jan. 11 with a jump of 11.33 meters. She also ran a leg on the 4×400-meter relay at the meet.
The following weekend, Glover took fourth in the triple jump at the Wake Forest Invitational, turning in a jump of 11.89m. That mark is second in CofC women’s track & field history for the event. She also jumped 5.02m in the long jump.
Glover advanced through to finals of the triple jump and finished in third-place at the Gene Anderson Invitational at UNC on Feb. 2 with a jump of 11.42 meters. The mark is tied for sixth best in school history.
Glover, who leads the conference standings in the triple jump, was the SoCon field performer of the week on Jan. 24.
“We are very proud of RoShani,” CofC head coach Amy Seago said. She has done a great job in the short amount of time she has been with us. We expected her to make an immediate impact for us and she’s proven she is adapting well to college-level training.”
Glover and the Cougars will compete this weekend at the Tiger Paw Invitational, Feb. 8-9 hosted by Clemson.
