Senior gains second all-region honor

Senior women's indoor track and field thrower Shay Aator (West Lafayette, Ind.) added more honors to an already glowing performance resume Monday, March 6, with the announcement of the United States Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association's all-Great Lakes region team.

Aator was part of the group for a second successive season. To be named all-region, an athlete must either be ranked in the top five of an individual event in the region according to final Track and Field Results Reporting System data or be part of a top three relay team.

The West Lafayette native competes at the 2017 NCAA Division III indoor track and field Championships Friday, March 10. She's ranked 12th nationally in the 20-pound weight throw which begins at 11 a.m. Eastern Standard Time at North Central College of Illinois' Al B. Carius indoor track and field complex in Naperville, Ill.
