Vincentian track athlete Shafiqua Maloney continued to contribute in significant ways to the early indoor season good form of the female track and field team (the Razorbacks), of the University of Arkansas.
Maloney is pursuing studies at the University of Arkansas on an athletic scholarship.
Last weekend, running a split 51.84 seconds in the third leg of the 4x400m relay at the SEC Indoor Track and Field Championships at the University of Arkansas, she helped her team to gold in that event.
This reporter, who had the privilege of viewing a video recording of the race, clearly saw that it was Maloney’s third leg, in which she opened quite a lead over her opponents, that accounted in great measure for her team’s victory.
Maloney also ran the 800 meters event where she finished 3rd in 2:03.12, bettering her previous best time of 2:04.65 for the event, which she had registered some two weekends previous.
