Terrel Davis took home Most Outstanding Field Performer and All-Conference Honors this past weekend at the America East Championship. Davis had a stellar day, claiming first place in the long jump after hitting the sand in a new conference best and program best 7.60m. His long jump distance broke a 20-year America East record. To end his day, Davis earned fifth-place in the triple jump, reaching a distance of 14.70m, earning that All-Conference honor.

Before Hartford, the Beacon, New York native competed on the track and soccer teams throughout his four-year tenure at Beacon High School. While there, Davis won the state championship once in long jump, earned 2x All-State long jump honors, and was named All-America one time. To add to his achievements, he was a 12-time All-League recognizee (2012-2015) and a 5-time All-Country recognizee in the same span. Outstanding athleticism runs in the family, as Davis’s older brother used to jump for Northeastern University.
