UNO track and field has three athletes who call Jamaica home

Lianne McNaughton, Kathie-Lee Laidley and Denneil Shaw all took their love for track to the next level when they left their home country of Jamaica to come to an unknown place called Nebraska.
"I didn't know where (Nebraska) was when I landed," McNaughton said. "I found out after where I was when I was there."
Shaw and Laidley, both junior jumpers on the team, knew each other before coming to UNO from St. Andrew High School for Girls in Portmore, Jamaica, near the capital city of Kingston. Senior thrower Lianne McNaughton attended Campion College High School in Kingston before coming to UNO.
All three are major contributors to a team that looks to be one of the strongest in The Summit League.
