Hinds Track finishes strong at NJCAA Indoor National Championships in Lynchburg

LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA – The Hinds Community College men’s and women’s track teams competed at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Indoor National Championships this past weekend (March 6-7) held at the Liberty University Indoor Track complex.

As a whole, Hinds experienced their usual success as both the men’s and women’s teams finished ranked No. 11 in the nation.

“We had a good national meet overall. We didn’t get what we wanted in the men’s hurdles or the 200m. On the women’s side we competed and scored in all events in which we entered. We always have a great women’s 4X400m relay and the team qualified for the finals and scored. Corvell Todd… what can I say, he’s a championship competitor and he has proven it three times now. I’m very proud of the group as a whole. Now we will get focused on the outdoor season.”

Individually, Hinds’ sophomore high jumper, Corvell Todd, brought home his third NJCAA National Championship title as he placed first in the finals of the men’s high jump after a tough duel with the South Plains jumper who went six rounds with Todd until, finally, Corvell was the last to make the 7′-.05″ (2.15m) height. Todd previously won the National Championships in both the indoor and outdoor high jump last season.

Additionally, Hinds finished the meet with two NJCAA All-Americans and 13 USTFCCA All-Americans.
