Harris is the first student from Hampton University to ever win the award.
“I am so proud of Jakari Harris for being Hampton’s first Christenberry Award winner,” Hampton University President Dr. William R. Harvey stated. “These awards are very special in the conference and to have her earn one in our first season shows the type of student-athlete we aim for at Hampton University.”
According to Hampton, “Harris, a chemical engineering major who carries a 4.06 grade point average, had her best three-round event at the Big South Championships with a 248 three-round total and a season best round of 79. She was tops on the team in scoring average at 83.2 for the 2018-19 season.”
