Denison alum Hunt wins Women's Track & Field SAA Newcomer of the Year

Former Denison Yellow Jacket Jaydan Hunt captured the Southern Athletic Association Newcomer of the Year honor in Women's Track and Field.

In the shot put, Hunt finished in third place. The Hendrix freshman had her best throw at 11.07 meters. She then won the discus with a toss of 39.47 meters.

Hunt was the overall female A+ Athlete winner for 2016-17.

The major award winners were selected exclusively 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.
