Alexis Dickerson Signs With UNCW!!!!
February 13, 2014By Kevin McCloskey of Western Alamance High School
Two-time defending state champion, Alexis Dickerson, will take her shot-putting prowess to Wilmington next year and compete with the Lady Seahawks!
Dickerson won the Class 3-A indoor track and field state championship for shot put with a throw of 41 feet, 1¼ inches Friday. That set a personal record, and made her a back-to-back state champion with last spring’s outdoor track and field conquest.
“Signing with Wilmington kind of helped me … I want to impress them with my throws, but I also kind of looked back and decided I wanted to throw because I wanted myself to be better,” Dickerson said, “so I stopped throwing to hit a number or to win a state championship, I just wanted to improve and get better.”
