Timber Creek graduate Myiah Sturdivant, a Rowan junior, goes into this weekend’s All-Atlantic Region Championships as the No. 8 quarter-miler in NCAA Division 3 Atlantic Region.
Sturidvant, a two-time NJAC 400 champ, is coming off an indoor PR 57.44 in her last meet – Fasttrack Invite at Ocean Breeze two weeks ago – which earned her a No. 19 national ranking in NCAA Division 3.
Her previous indoor PR was a 57.97 when she won last year’s NJAC Championships at Ocean Breeze.
Sturdivant has run as fast as 56.30 outdoors – that was her winning time at the 2018 outdoor NJAC meet in Ewing. At Timber Creek she ran 59.21 outdoors to win the 2015 Camden County Championships at Haddon Township her sophomore year. Her indoor PR was 1:01.16 her sophomore year at sectionals.
Rowan is also ranked No. 5 in the Atlantic Region in the 4-by-4, with Sturdivant scheduled to run with junior Danielle Nicklas, senior Melina Johnson and freshman Madison Hart at the All-Atlantic Championships this weekend at Nazareth College in Rochester, N.Y.
Sturdivant is also slated to run the 400 on Rowan’s distance medley, presumably with senior Dianne Ferraro of South Plainfield on the 1,200, freshman She’Lynn Clarke of Glassboro on the 800 and sophomore Madison Edwards of Cinnaminson on the 1,600.
