Aurieyall Scott: Track Athlete of the Year
Scott is the third-straight Knight to earn the honor.
UCF sprinter Aurieyall Scott already boasts a healthy list of accomplishments this season: Three-time conference champion, national champion, two-time All-American, USTFCCCA South Region Athlete of the Year and the Bowerman Watch List candidate. Now, she can add Conference USA Indoor Track Athlete of the Year to the pile.
On Wednesday, Scott became the third-straight Knight to clinch the conference’s highest honor. Hurdler Jackie Coward (2011) and sprinter Octavious Freeman (2012) have been saddled with the award in previous years.
Scott became UCF’s first NCAA champion of any sport by matching her NCAA-leading time and school record 7.13 in the women’s 60-meter dash final. She also picked up a silver medal at nationals in the 200m clocking 22.71.
Scott won gold in the 60M, 200M and 4×400 Relay at the C-USA Indoor Championships in February. The junior has been recognized as a USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Week and a two-time C-USA Track Athlete of the Week.
She won six-of-seven finals this season at both 60M and 200M. With 11 All-American honors to her name, she is UCF’s most decorated student-athlete.
Scott and the rest of the No. 11 Knights will be in action in their final home meet of the season on Friday and Saturday at the UCF Track and Field Complex. Admission is free.
