While it would appear that Elsie Igberaese is setting a personal record or inching up in the Georgia track and field record books nearly every time she competes, the former Dacula High School standout is just happy to be competing again.

A redshirt sophomore thrower for the Bulldogs, Igberaese in November 2020 was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma, a type of blood cancer that affects the lymphatic system. And after eight months, three surgeries, four chemotherapy cycles and three rounds of radiation, she was proclaimed cancer-free last July and was able to return to competition for the 2022 indoor track and field season.
