In her first season on the Plains in 2010, Shenqiua Ferguson made quite an impact.

At the 2010 SEC Outdoor Track and Field Championship, Ferguson took first place in both the women’s 100- and 200-meter and helped the 4×100-meter relay team place first as well.

This dominating performance helped Ferguson win 2010 SEC Female Runner of the Year, becoming the third Auburn woman to do so after Juliet Campbell (1993) and Kerron Stewart (2006, 2007). Still, the award came as quite a surprise for Ferguson.

“It was shocking because I didn’t expect to receive such a great award,” Ferguson said. “It’s really humbling to know that from all the many people they could have chosen from, they chose me.”

Originally from Nassau, the capital city of the Bahamas, Ferguson didn’t start running track until she was in high school.
