Two Track Events = Two Tri-C Records for Euclid's Rashida Harris

Rashida Harris

Rashida Harris of Euclid shattered two Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) indoor track and field records while competing in February at the Jim Wuske Invitational.

Harris topped her own school records in the shot put and weight throw while winning both events at the invitational, held at the Peterson Field House on the University of Mount Union campus in Alliance. She unleashed a heave of 49 feet, 8.75 inches in the shot put to set the College record for the third time. Harris also extended her school mark in the weight throw with a toss of 55 feet, 11.25 inches.

The sophomore from Euclid will compete in both field events at the 2017 NJCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Last year, she earned All-American honors in the shot put after placing fifth at the national meet.

Harris is working toward an Associate of Science degree at Tri-C with a focus in physical therapy.
