DETROIT, Mich. -- The women's indoor season wrapped up Saturday (Feb. 16) at the 2013 Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference (WHAC) Championships. The season was considered a success as the Mustangs, led by freshmen, competed for the first time in the WHAC since gaining acceptance into the conference July 1, 2012.
CHAMPION OF CHARACTER
The women were led at the WHAC Championships by freshman sprinter/mid-distance runner, Devin Willis (Flint, Mich./Carman Ainsworth). Willis, also a cross country student-athlete at Marygrove, competed in the 60m and 400m events at the conference's indoor showcase. In the end, the Flint native took home a bit of hardware after being named to the WHAC's Champions of Character Team.
Willis was named as Marygrove's representative on the WHAC's Champions of Character Team by best representing the NAIA's Live 5 program and Five Core Values of Integrity, Respect, Responsibility, Servant Leadership, and Sportsmanship.
COACH OF CHARACTER
The Mustangs head coach, LaCema Womack, earned her second Champions of Character Coach of the Year award after representing Marygrove well at the conference level. Womack's first selection came at the conclusion of the cross country season in which she was named Women's Cross Country Champions of Character Coach of the Year. The second year head coach also received the award on the women's side to end indoor season.
