Welcome to the 12th "Hot Summer Bods in Women's Sports & Fitness." We will run this series throughout the summer.
Sacramento State's Shilah Bedingfield has shined for years for her school's track and field program. During the 2018 Big Sky Outdoor Track & Field Championships she placed second in the 200-meter dash as well as in the 400 and 1,600-meter relays. At the 2019 indoor conference meet she earned runner-up finishes in the 200-meter dash and 1,600-meter relay.
The 2019 outdoor Big Sky championship meet belonged to Beddingfield as she took four titles. She won the 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash, 400-meter relay and 1,600-meter relay! That season, she also qualified for the NCAA championship meet in the 200 meters.
In 2020 she captured another championship as part of the winning 1,600-meter relay squad at the Big Sky Indoor Track & Field Championships.
Syracuse's Eunice Boateng makes curvy look great on the track. This cool Canadian sprinter has collected some wins over the years. In 2018 she won the 60-meter dash at the Dr. Sander Invitational. Later that year she won the 60-meter dash at the Greg Page Relays and shortly after the turn of 2019, Boateng was successful winning the same race at the Cornell Upstate Challenge.
Boateng collected two more wins when she took the 60 meters at the Marc Deneault Invitational in 2019 and was a part of the 1,600-meter relay team that won at the Southern Tier Collegiate Open 2020 meet.
Volleyball is a beautiful sport and one of its most beautiful players is Alyna Draper.
On the court the libero helped Virginia Commonwealth University go 24-7 and qualify for the NCAA Tournament. During her freshman season in 2018 she was named to the Atlantic 10 Conference All-Rookie Team. In her first two seasons she's played 55 matches and has collected 333 digs. Over her first three seasons VCU has amassed a record of 43-17.
West Virginia University gymnast Erica Fontaine gets it done in competition, on social media and most importantly in the classroom. For three straight seasons she has earned Academic All-Big 12 honors.
Instagram's most famous college gymnast, Fontaine has amassed over 456,000 followers on Instagram. Most of her posts are of her amazing beach bod, but if you check out her "Nastics" videos in the highlights section you can get a glimpse at her athletic talents and accomplishments.
This year, Rutgers' Dakota Gerges earned an indoor win as part of the distance medley relay squad at the Metropolitan Championships. It was the first win of the junior's collegiate career.
Gerges, an Academic All-Big Ten selection, had a strong high school career as well. She had the 14th best 400-meter hurdles time (1:01.08) in the nation as a senior at Sayreville War Memorial in New Jersey.
