GULF SHORES, Ala. - Jerosan Fletcher has a knack for collecting All-America hardware this season in Gulf Shores, Alabama, adding her third All-America designation of the 2017 season by finishing seventh in the 200-meter dash at Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium.
Earlier in the week, she was an All-American with a fourth-place finish in the long jump, an event she was also an indoor All-American in during the March indoor championships.
"Jerosan has worked hard all year, and she's a competitor," said Park coach Brian Renshaw. "She expects more out of herself than any coach expects out of her - that makes her a fun kid to coach. I'm proud of the way she finished it, and she's got room to grow next year. It could be a fun season."
Fletcher's time of 24.52 was a fraction off of Culver-Stockton's Paige Bray, who finished in 24.41, while Argyana Bolton, a freshman from Southern-New Orleans, won the championship in 23.16.
The All-America distinction in the 200 is the third All-America award for the Pirates during the meet, two by Fletcher, who was also a long jump All-American, while Aaliyah Brown was seventh yesterday in the shot put to earn that award for a second-straight season.
"This was a very successful meet for these two, and hopefully seeing what they were able to do will be motivation for how to work, for some other people who are right there," Renshaw said. "It's definitely something to build on."
