Maygan Shaw earns Southland Conference Female Track Athlete of the Week

Following an impressive showing in the 200-meters at the Bobcat Invitational, Maygan Shaw was named the Southland Conference Women’s Track Athlete of the Week.  

Shaw, a sophomore from Pineville, ran a 23.55 in the 200-meters, which is a personal best and the top time in SLC in the outdoor this season. 

The time is more than a half-second better than second-place in the conference, teammate Vanessa Balde, and is 47th nationally. 

It is her second such honor in her career, also winning one as a freshman in 2022. 

If that wasn’t enough, she was a member of the 4×400 relay team at the Texas Relays which posted a 3:40.11, which ranks 10th in program history. 

Shaw joins Djimon Gumbs as the Northwestern State athletes to earn outdoor honors this season. 

After a week off, the track & field teams host their annual Leon Johnson Invitational on April 15 at the Walter P. Ledet Track Complex.
