Pulliam Named USTFCCCA Regional Field Athlete of the Year

Published: March 5, 2018.

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association named junior Cierra Pulliam (Plainfield, Ill., Romeoville) Midwest Region Field Athlete of the Year.

Pulliam earned the honor after winning the triple jump with 13.02 meters and long jump with 6.04 meters at conference breaking the record in both. Her triple was an automatic qualifying leap and she picked up a provisional in the long jump. She ranks second in the nation in the triple jump and fifth in the long jump.

"Cierra had one of the best meets in GLVC history." Lewis head women's track and field coach Dana Schwarting said. "Two Glvc records in the long and triple jump, with just two attempts was pretty amazing. This award was well deserved!"

Pulliam heads to nationals March 9-10 in Pittsburg, Kansas where she'll compete in the triple and long jump.
