Former HP Panthers Jason Roberts Named to Academic All-America List

Charlotte track and field seniors Jason Roberts (Jamestown, N.C. / Southwest Guilford HS) and Macey Ruble (Boone, N.C. / Watauga HS) were named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-America Division I Second and Third Teams, respectively. Both sport 4.0 grade point averages.

Roberts is a six-time all-conference thrower for the 49ers. He ranks in the top-five     in school history in five different events, including second all-time in the outdoor hammer and indoor weight throw. He was the 2009 A-10 Outdoor Field Performer of the Year and was named to the Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar List Second Team.

The throwing standout capped off an outstanding collegiate career this year, with his final competition coming at the 2012 NCAA East Preliminary. Earlier in May, Roberts was runner-up in the shot put and hammer and third in the discus at the 2012 Atlantic 10 Track & Field Outdoor Championships, helping the 49ers men win their fifth conference championship since joining the league in 2006. During the indoor season, he was also runner-up in the shot put, leading the Niners to a second place team finish at the conference meet.

Having earned a Bachelor’s in Accounting in 2011, Roberts is working towards his Masters of Accountancy and boasts an impressive 4.0 GPA. He is a three-time Atlantic 10 Academic All-Conference selection.

SHEMIAH BROOKS SIGN WITH CLEMSON!!

Senior Jumper/Hurdler Shemiah Brooks took only (2) of her (5) scheduled official visits, (the maximum numbers of official visits allowed to senior athletes) to make her final decision that Death Valley would be her new track home in the fall of 2012. After visits to Clemson University and Auburn University, Brooks decided that there was no need for any other visits she wanted to attend Clemson University.

In a conversation with Shemiah after her visit to Auburn, She stated that she was tired of the recruiting process and wanted to end it by making her announcement effective immediately. She stated that Clemson just felt like home, she loved her time with the coaches and athletes also the facilities were second to none. It didn’t hurt that Clemson’s womens team have won the ACC Championships for the past (2) years and from the looks of things they should win again this year. Brooks stated that she wanted to join a winning program where she would not come in as the top jumper, but have to work hard to be the best. Brooks had also considered visits to Alabama, NC State, Virginia, South Carolina, LSU.

Shemiah Brooks: HP Panthers current record holder in the Triple Jump: 39-03, the Long Jump: 17-08.50 also posts a time of 14.66 in the 100H. The time is good enough to share top honors for the event.
