The Southern Athletic Association announced the 2018 All-SAA Women’s Track and Field awards and Denison native Jaydan Hunt received one of the league’s major honors.


The major award winners were selected by the league’s head coaches while the all-conference selections were based off a student-athlete’s top finish at the 2018 SAA Championships.


Hunt, a freshman at Hendrix College, captured the league’s Newcomer of the Year honor.


In the conference championships, she then won the discus with a toss of 39.47 meters and finished in third place in the shot put at 11.07 meters.
