WALTHAM, Mass. – Bentley University senior Stephanie Mattson (Smithfield, R.I./Smithfield HS), whose resume includes school records in 13 events, has earned Division II All-East Region honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association in both the triple jump and the long jump for her performances during the 2019 outdoor season.
The top five individuals in each event from each of eight regions earned All-Region honors, in addition to each of the members of the region's top three relay teams.
Mattson achieved the region's second best performances in both the triple jump (40'0.5" at the Northeast-10 Championships) and the long jump (a wind-aided 19'3.5" in the Stonehill Skyhawk Invitational). The NE10 triple jump champion missed qualifying for the NCAA Division II Championships by less than three inches.
Mattson, a five-time Academic All-Northeast-10 honoree, totaled seven All-Region awards during a career that saw her break school records a total of 36 times.
