“Sharelle could be the next in a line of NCAA-elite 400 hurdlers at Harvard. Despite arriving with outstanding credentials, we believe she has a lot of room for growth in her main events. This summer, at the World Jr. Championships in Finland, she anchored the Canadian 4x400m relay to a new national junior record. In 2017, she won a silver medal in the 400m hurdles at the Commonwealth Youth Games. We’re excited about helping Sharelle develop.” - Coach Tolbert
