Paine College has announced the hiring of Marquita Davis as head coach of cross country, in addition to track and field. A nine-time all-America, the Memphis native earned a bachelor’s degree from St. Augustine’s University in 2006.

She has coached previously in high school and college.

As a 60-meter hurdler, Davis won back-to-back NCAA Division II indoor titles in 2006 and 2007. She finished a speedy 8.44 seconds both years, which was record time during these athletic events.
