James Wood graduate Sarah Johnson ended her track & field career at Christopher Newport University this spring by earning All-South/Southeast Region honors in two events.

In order to earn a spot on the All-Region squad, student-athletes must rank among the top-five competitors in their region in an individual discipline.

Johnson ranked first in the South/Southeast Region in the discus with a winning mark of 43.94 meters (144 feet, 2 inches) at the Eastern Shore Challenge at Salisbury University on April 13. That effort also established a school and Capital Athletic Conference record. Johnson went on to win the discus at the CAC Championships that ended on May 4

Additionally, Johnson ranked fourth in the region in the shot put with a 12.45-meter toss (40 feet, 10.25 inches) at the CAC Championships, which earned her second in the meet.

Overall, Johnson is a five-time All-Region selection.
