Four University of West Georgia women's track and field athletes have been honored as USTFCCCA All-Region performers as Andrea Foster, Nya Moses, Trisan Haughton and Dawn McCaskill were selected to the squad on Tuesday.

The top-five individuals in each event from each region earned all-region distinction, in addition to each of the region's top-three relay teams.

Foster is an all-region performer in the heptathlon, finishing third at the Gulf South Conference Championships in April.

Moses, the gold medalist in the hammer at the GSC Championships, set a school record in the event with a throw of 46.38 meters.

For Haughton, the honor adds to an already exciting week, as on Saturday the senior set a school record and hit an NCAA provisional mark in the high jump, clearing 1.7 meters and putting her in line for a potential trip to NCAA Nationals.

McCaskill's performance at the GSC Championships in the 100-meter dash landed her a spot on the all-region team as her time of 12.00 seconds set a UWG record and resulted in a fourth-place finish.

Another postseason award rolled in this week for UWG freshman shortstop Alley Taylor as she was named Second-Team D2CCA All-South Region on Tuesday.

Taylor, who has already been named NFCA All-Region, as well as the GSC Freshman of the Year and First-Team All-GSC, became the second player to hit over .400 in a season as she hit .401 as a freshman in 2018.

Her average led the team and ranked 11th in the GSC. Taylor was second on UWG's squad with a 19 extra-base hits, including 12 doubles, a pair of triples and five home runs.

Taylor is the second D2CCA All-Region player in as many years for the Wolves.
