Kayla White made history at North Carolina A&T. The Aggies’ senior track and field star was able to bring home the national championship for the university in the 200 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Birmingham, Alabama. She also finished second in the 60-meter hurdles.
With the standout performance, White became the first-ever N.C. A&T track and field athlete – indoor or outdoor – to win an NCAA national championship.
Her win was so impressive, in fact, that White’s time in the 200-meter was the fastest time in the world in 2019.
“Kayla is a great athlete which we have seen time and time again,” said Duane Ross, Aggies director of track and field programs. “Our plan this year, her senior year, was to do this. I told her this was about her. It wasn’t about me, it wasn’t about the team. It was about her being selfish and coming out of this race as a star.”
White is a first-team All-American.
Throughout her time at North Carolina A&T, White has taken home 14 MEAC indoor or outdoor titles in her career.
