CofC’s Sisk closes book on stellar career at NCAA prelims

One of the finest competitors in College of Charleston track and field history, senior thrower Tiffany Sisk saw her career in the maroon and white come to a close on Thursday at the NCAA East Preliminary, where the three-time conference champion threw 14.94 meters to finish in 26th place.

“What a great way for Tiffany to finish off her career as a Cougar,” said CofC head coach Amy Seago. “We are so proud of everything that she has accomplished and glad that she had the opportunity to etch another mark in the history books with her participation in the NCAA Preliminary Round.”

Sisk’s performance on Thursday brings to a close a four-year career that saw her win three conference championships, including back-to-back Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) titles in 2014 and 2015. The Easley native leaves CofC as the program’s all-time record holder in the shot put, having reached a distance of 15.04 meters on her final throw earlier this month at the CAA Championship.

College of Charleston women’s team finished fifth at the Sperry ICSA Women’s National Championship in Newport, R.I.

Yale University won the event, followed by Boston College, Brown University and Dartmouth College.
