NEW ORLEANS – Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns sprinter Kiana Foster added more Sun Belt Conference Track and Field honors to a successful week on Friday when she was named the Women's Most Outstanding Track Performer in a release by the league office.
Foster, who captured individual titles in both the 60-meter dash and 200-meter dash, was one of 14 Ragin' Cajun who earned All-Sun Belt Conference honors during the recent SBC Indoor Championships that concluded on Tuesday.
After setting a school-record in the preliminaries of the 60-meters (7.48 seconds) on Monday, Foster came back and set a school-record in the women's 60-meter dash with a time of 7.37. Foster, making her SBC Championships debut after missing last year's event due to injury, helped Louisiana sweep the 200-meters clocking a time of 23.97 seconds in the women's race with Brock Appiah claiming the men's crown with a time of 21.31.
Foster, Serenity Rogers and Reagann Leleux each earned first-team All-Sun Belt Conference honors for the women's team with Appiah, Rylan Theyard and Chandler Mixon earning first-team honors for the men's team.
Six Louisiana athletes - Trejun Jones, Nathan Fergusson, Cole Courtois, Obdarius Ware, Tyrell Hargrove and Jamhad Booth – each earned second-team All-SBC honors while Emoni Coleman (women's 800-meters) and Yves Cherubin (men's 60-meter hurdles) were named to the third team.
Louisiana concluded the Indoor season with a strong performance at this week's SBC Indoor Track and Field Championships in Birmingham, Ala. On the men's side, Louisiana finished third overall with 111 points – equaling its best team performance since placing third overall in 2017 while scoring its most points since a 112-point performance at the 2004 SBC Championships in Murfreesboro, Tenn.
The women's team scored 64 of its 65.5 points on the final day to surge up the leaderboard as the Ragin' Cajuns recorded its best finish since a third-place performance in 2015.
Several Ragin' Cajuns athletes will await to be selected to compete at the NCAA Indoor Championships scheduled for March 12-13 in Fayetteville, Ark. Louisiana will officially open its long-awaited Outdoor season on March 12 when it travels to Mobile, Ala., to compete at the USA Invitational.
