February 28, 2019

Tyjuana Eason, a 2015 Kankakee graduate, made history for Southern Illinois University’s Women’s Track and Field team over the weekend at the Missouri Valley Conference Indoor Championships in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

Eason broke school records in the 60 M dash (7.38 s) and 200 M dash (24.12 s), winning both races. With the wins, she became the 15th student-athlete to ever win the two events on the same weekend and also became the first Saluki to ever win the 60 M dash at the indoor conference championships.
