Darlington High’s Dubose signs with S.C. State University track
LaQueena Dubose, a member of the Darlington High School Class of 2017, signed a letter of intent recently to attend South Carolina State University and join the track and field team.
Dubose gathered with her mother, coaches and school administrators for the ceremony.
“South Carolina State University gave me a great look at where I want to be in the future as an athlete and as a person,” Dubose said of her decision to attend the school.
Dubose competed in sprinting and jumping events, and she set a school record during her time at Darlington High in the long jump and 400-meter sprint. She also helped set records in the 4x200-meter, 4x400-meter relays.
She earned several All-Region honors during her high school career and competed as a 2016 state finalist in four events.
Dubose plans to study biology as an undergraduate and eventually become a dentist.
