Jeannelle Scheper is now a university graduate. The 20-year-old high jumper from Gros Islet now holds a bachelors degree in mathematics and economics with a minor in Spanish from the University of South Carolina. Scheper, one of 90 student athletes to graduate from USC this year, has been recruited into the master’s programme for economics. She is a women’s track and field team captain for the 2015 outdoor season, where she has been exemplary. So far, she is unbeaten in high jump, and has the top mark in the USA. She is favoured to win the Southeastern Conference title next week, and could be Saint Lucia’s first National Collegiate Athletics Association track and field champion in Division 1.
