Shot putter and third-year Monique Newton became the first woman National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) champion in Oberlin history. During the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on March 11, Newton posted the sixth-best throw in the history of the competition. “I’m the first national champion in program history, but I know I won't be the last,” says Newton. “This didn't happen overnight. It took months and months of hard work with my teammates to get here, and it was all worth it. It was worth every single second."
