JEFFERSON CITY - Eighteen members of Lincoln's track & field teams received a combined 31 all-region honors by the United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association for the 2012-13 NCAA Division II indoor track & field season. The Lincoln women's squad, currently the No. 1 team in the country in the latest USTFCCCA Division II rankings, had 13 athletes combine to earn 22 honors from the organization while the LU men had five athletes selected in a total of nine events.

To be named all-region, athletes must be in the top five in their region in individual events and among the top three in their region in relay events.

Sheri Kaye Campbell, the high point scorer at the MIAA Indoor Championships, and Donna-Lee Hylton led Lincoln with three all-region honors apiece. Campbell, who helped lead LU to its third-straight MIAA championship last weekend, earned honors in the high jump, triple jump and pentathlon after finishing first or second in the league in each event. Hylton, meanwhile, was honored for posting some of the Central Region's top times in the 200-meter, 400-meter and the 4x400-meter relay.

Five members of the Lincoln women's team earned all-region status in two events, including Latoya King, who owns the nation's top times in the 60-meter (7.37) and the 200-meter (23.70). Lincoln's 4x400-meter squad, consisting of Hylton, Yanique Haye, Tamara Keane and Michelle Cumberbatch, also owns the top time in the country (3:40.55), and all four athletes also earned all-region honors in individual events. Haye and Cumberbatch were honored in the 400-meter while Keane was named all-region in the 200-meter.

Yanique Ellington picked up all-region honors in the 60-meter and 200-meter events while Anna-Kay James and Juneille Barker were both recognized in the 60-meter hurdles. Twishana Williams (the mile) and Lovan Palmer (400-meter) rounded out Lincoln's honors in the track events while Nickeisha Beaumont (long jump) and Daniele Newman (triple jump) were both honored for their successful marks in field events.

The Blue Tigers' 13 recognized athletes were by far the most by any women's program in the MIAA, with Emporia State being second with five honored athletes.

On the men's side, four of the five honored athletes earned all-region recognition in multiple events, including Romel Lewis, who was selected in both the 60-meter and the 200-meter. Sabiel Anderson was honored in the 60-meter hurdles, Michael Ashley was recognized in the 400-meter dash and Jermaine Blake was selected in the 800-meter run. Anderson, Ashley and Blake, along with Tyrone Hawkins, were also honored in the 4x400-meter relay after posting the MIAA's top time of 3:13.48.

The Blue Tigers are led by head coach Victor Thomas, who is assisted by Ailene Smith. Thirteen members of the Lincoln women's indoor track & field team and six athletes from the men's team will represent the Blue Tigers in a combined 27 events at the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships, which will be held in Birmingham, Ala. from March 7 through March 9.
