Georgia sophomore Anna Hall has been named the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) South Region Women’s Field Athlete of the Year with the NCAA Indoor Championships just more than a week away.
This marks the seventh year in a row that either the Bulldog men or women have earned at least one of the regional indoor honors. Hall follows fellow sophomore teammate Jasmine Moore who was the 2020 USTFCCCA South Region Women’s Field Athlete of the Year. Moore was later a finalist for last year’s National Women’s Field Athlete of the Year. In fact, there have been seven Georgia winners of the South Region Women’s Field Athlete of the Year since the award’s inception in 2006.
Hall, a native of Greenwood, Colo., won the Southeastern Conference pentathlon last weekend by 426 points after scoring the second-highest total (4,521) of her career. She set meet records in the both the pentathlon high jump (6 feet, 2 ¼ inches) and in the 800 meters (2:10.89).
Hall stands second nationally and fourth in the world after becoming the No. 4 all-time collegiate performer (No. 9 all-time American) with the No. 9 all-time collegiate performance to win the Razorback Invitational with a meet record 4,590 points earlier in the year. In addition, Hall became the third-leading scorer at the SEC meet with 17 points after also tying for second in the open high jump with a clearance of 6-1.25.
Hall, Moore and 14 other teammates will compete at the NCAA Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., on March 12-13.
