After four years as one of Memphis' most successful track athletes Lisa Marie Hyman has joined the Tiger coaching staff and will oversee the team's jumpers.
A two-time Conference USA champion in the outdoor triple jump and C-USA indoor champion in the triple jump, Hyman became one of the most decorated Lady Tiger track athletes in school history during her time at the U of M.
She still holds the school records for the indoor and outdoor triple jump (12.67m). A two time NCAA Regional qualifier, Hyman reached the NCAA Outdoor Championships in 2005 and was named to the ESPN All-American Team.
While attending Memphis, Hyman was also a standout in the classroom. She was an honor student and was twice named to the Tiger Academic 30 for having one of the top 30 grade-point averages of any student athlete on campus. In 2002, she was named to the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll
Hyman is a native of Kingston, Jamaica. She graduated from Memphis in 2004 with a degree in mathematics.
