By Dennis Driscoll, Associate Athletic Director for Social Media and Creative Content

EUGENE, Ore. – Sophomore sprinter Jamarion Stubbs placed seventh overall in the 200-meter dash with a time of 20.59. The Las Vegas native also earned First Team All-American honors for earning a top-eight finish.

“I would like to thank Coach Beene and Coach Anderson for believing in me and helping me prepare for this moment,” Stubbs said. “It’s an honor to be an All-American and to represent Alabama State University, the Southwestern Athletic Conference, and the HBCU community. I truly do appreciate the support and well-wishes.”

Bama State head coach Ritchie Beene is proud of Stubbs’ accomplishments and can’t wait to see what’s next for the All-American.

“This was a special year for Jamarion,” Beene said. “Coach Anderson has done an amazing job and now it’s time to turn our focus to the Olympic trials.”

Stubbs will return to Hayward Field in a couple of weeks and compete for an opportunity to represent the United States in the 200-meter dash.
