Skylyn Webb of Delta was chosen as an outstanding student in psychology by the faculty and department staff at Fort Lewis College. All outstanding students will be recognized Friday, April 29, at an on-campus ceremony.
On April 20, Webb was honored with the Track & Field Most Outstanding Performer Award at the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) banquet.
"After a two-year hiatus from track and field at the high school level, Skylyn has been a constant performer both indoor and outdoor," said head coach Mark Dutro. "She has been a provisional qualifier in the 400 both indoor and outdoor and significantly established four individual records (200/400 indoor and outdoor) and two relays (4x400 indoor and 4x100 outdoor). Due to her class schedule, it has made it necessary for her to practice at odd times and mostly on her own. Her work ethic and commitment to the sport and program are top examples of what we aspire all our student-athletes to follow. All this in a program in its second year of existence and finishing her degree in three years."
In addition, Webb was named to the 2016 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Women's Indoor Track and Field All-Academic Honor Roll.
This award is voted on by the league's sports information directors. To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must carry a 3.30 cumulative grade point average and must have been an active student at the institution for at least two consecutive semesters or three consecutive quarters.
The daughter of Jim and Willyn Webb, Skylyn is an exercise science - exercise physiology major.
