Sheila Trice-Myers

Sheila Trice-Myers out of Louisa County High School in Mineral, Virginia is one of the most decorated athletes in NCAA Track and Field history, earning 30 All-American honors, and winning 23 conference and 15 national championships. As a competitor for Christopher Newport University from 1987-1990, Trice-Myers would rewrite the school and NCAA record books. Her first national title came in 1987 as a member of the 4×100 meter relay team. She would go on to win four more national titles in 1988, six in 1989, and four in 1990. In the 1989 Division III Women’s Indoor Track and Field Championships, Trice-Myers won all four of her events, outscoring the next best team by herself. Her four-title finish in a single championship event put her in elite company, as only the second ever athlete to accomplish this feat, the first being Jesse Owens at Ohio State. Her NCAA Division III record still stands for the 55-meter dash, and she brought home additional national titles in the 55 meter hurdles, 100m, 200m, long jump, triple jump, and 4×100 meter relay events. The NCAA Division-III Outstanding Female Track Athlete of the 1980’s, Trice-Myers accumulated eight indoor national titles, which still stands as the most by any athlete at any level of the NCAA in track & field history. Trice-Myers has previously been inducted into the NCAA Division III Track & Field Athlete Hall of Fame, Christopher Newport Athletics Hall of Fame, and the Athletic Hall of Fame of the Lower Virginia Peninsula.
