About Jeneva
McCall has emerged over the past few years as one of most well-rounded throwers in the country. After winning the 2012 NCAA Indoor title in the weight throw, McCall’s name appeared on the Bowerman Award women’s watch list for the first time in her career. She attended Bassett High School in Virginia for three years before moving to Thornridge High School for her senior year. She finished among the top five in the state each time at both schools.
