After finishing fourth in the 2014 CIAA Indoor Championships, for a 12th overall ranking in the NCAA DII National Championships, Avery placed first in the 200m dash at the George Mason University annual Last Chance Meet.

Already at the top of the Division II qualifying list for the indoor 400 meters, Quanera Hayes solidified her position as one of the Division’s top sprinters and was named a National Division II player of the week. Hayes also is an All-Atlantic region selection in the 200 meters. She ran her way to another nationals appearance early in the season with a posted time of 24.24.

The top five individuals in each event from each region earned the All-Region distinction, in addition to each of the members of the regions’ top three relay teams. The regions used for this award match those used during the cross country season. Men’s All-Region awards went to 536 different student-athletes, who combined for 770 total awards.
