Player Bio: Shemeica Binns

Year: 09
Hometown/School: Jamaica, N.Y.

From Queens, New York, thrower Shemeica Binns returns to continue building off a tremendous 2006-2007 season, where she was throwing personal bests almost every weekend. A graduate of Mercersburg Academy, Binns is a junior majoring in Psychology with a minor in Spanish. Binns threw the weight and shot indoors and the disc and hammer outdoors. This indoor season, however, Binns hopes to really focus on the shot put indoors to improve her 5th place finish in the state from 2007. In addition to track and field, Binns enjoys playing rugby. Two of her favorite quotes are: "Courage is not the absence of fear but the mastery of it," and "The greatest thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are moving." There is no doubt that Binns will continue moving forward and throwing farther this year.
