A jumper out of Juniata High School who now competes for the Bloomsburg University women’s track & field team has earned All-Atlantic Region honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association.

Huskies’ junior Sydney Sheaffer (Port Royal, Pa./Juniata High School) earned her first-career all-region honor in the high jump as she posted the fourth-best jump in the region. She cleared 1.68 meters, a college-best, at the Elliston Earlybird Open on April 8 and won the event. At the Outdoor PSAC Championships, Sheaffer finished fourth overall with her second-best jump of the season at 1.64 meters.
