Arkansas State senior Sharika Nelvis capped her college career by winning the 100-meter hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore., in 12.52 seconds, the fastest time in the world this season.

Arkansas State senior Sharika Nelvis has been named the Honda Sports Award winner for Track & Field.

Nelvis won individual national titles in the 60-meter hurdles and 100-meter hurdles at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. She is the first Arkansas State athlete to win a Honda Sports Award in any sport.

“It’s a great honor to be presented this award,” Nelvis said in a release.” I’m really honored and very appreciative to be chosen as the recipient of the prestigious Honda Sports Award. It means so much.”

The Honda Sports Award is presented annually to the top female athletes in 12 NCAA-sanctioned sports. Nelvis is a finalist for the Honda Cup, which will be presented June 30 in Los Angeles.

Nelvis was named the Sun Belt Conference's female athlete of the year after winning four individual conference titles indoors and three individual championships outdoors.
