Romaine Beckford named NJCAA Track and Field Men’s Athlete of the Week

LEVELLAND — Romaine Beckford notched a first-place finish in the men's high jump on Feb. 6 at the Angelo State Invite, recording a new personal pest as the sophomore from Jamaica was named the NJCAA Track and Field Men's Athlete of the Week. 

Beckford had the top jump in all of collegiate competition at Angelo, clearing 7' 2.5" to take first overall for the Texans. Beckford finished second at the indoor national meet a year ago, jumping 7' 0.5" and currently ranks first in the NJCAA in the men's high jump.
