The second of the two CCRI Track & Field participants at the 2014 NJCAA Division I Track & Field National Championships at Mesa Community College in Mesa AZ competed on Friday. Shenelle Teixeira (Barrington, RI) competed in the 400m hurdles.

Teixeira placed 26th at the Championships with a solid effort of 1 minute8.10 seconds. CCRI Head Coach Gregg Cornell commented after the meet “Both Shenelle Teixeira and Haley Beausoleil, who placed 14th in the Javelin throw on Thursday, put forth consistent performances like they had all season long. Haley and Shenelle are only freshmen and walked away from their national meet experience with big goals for their 2014-2015 track and field seasons. Both ladies represented the Community College of Rhode Island with great sportsmanship. I look forward to having a chance to coach them once again next year.”
