Shatoniah Miller wanted to continue her track career in college. Benedict College offered her that opportunity.
The Danville senior has signed a track scholarship with the historically black Division II school in Columbia, S.C.
"I wanted to run," Miller said. "They were the school that gave me a scholarship."
Miller said she also considered attending Western Kentucky and Tennessee State, but when the scholarship offer came through, it was too good to pass up.
Miller qualified for the state meet in four events last season and medaled in all of them. She was third in the 100 hurdles (16.05 seconds) and the triple jump (33 feet, 3/4 inches), fourth in the long jump (15-9 1/2) and seventh in the 300 hurdles (50.31 seconds).
She said she'd like to focus on the 100 hurdles and the two jumps in college, but that that will be up to the coaching staff at Benedict.
