After transferring from Utah State, Candy Cashell made a strong impact in a short period of time for both the Delaware basketball and track and field teams. A native of Unionville, Pa., Cashell became the most accomplished high jumper in UD history in just two seasons of competition and was a key contributor in her only basketball season. She captured the 1986 East Coast Conference and ECAC indoor high jump titles and qualified for the NCAA Championships. Outdoors, she won two ECC titles, one ECAC crown, and earned All-American honors when she placed sixth in the high jump at the 1986 NCAA Championships, the highest national finish ever by a UD athlete in track and field. She still holds UD records in the indoor high jump (6-1 1/4) and outdoor high jump (6-0 1/2) events. In her only season with the UD basketball team, she started and averaged 6.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game for a team that went 19-9 and placed second in the ECC standings.
