Third-year thrower Monique Newton became the first woman National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) champion in Oberlin history. During the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships this spring, Newton threw the shot put 51-00.75 (15.56m), the sixth-best throw in Division-III history.
“I’m the first national champion in program history, but I know I won't be the last,” says the Sacramento, California, native. “This didn't happen overnight. It took months and months of hard work with my teammates to get here, and it was all worth it. It was worth every single second.”
