Davies has volunteered with the Walls Project, the LSU annual BOOzar, participated in a few Tiger Life service socials, and more.

She will be continuing her season and closing out her LSU career next week at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Austin, Texas. Davies is entered in the women’s 4×100-meter relay as the anchor leg.

Martingayle has volunteered in public schools to assist elementary school students improve their reading. He was also a volunteer intern helping with a summer program where kids in a socioeconomically disadvantaged neighborhood can make friends and keep up on their schoolwork. The Virginia Beach native also has logged time as a research volunteer logging hundreds of hours on a climate change receiving communities’ study, as research assistant in LSU’s school of renewable natural resources, and as an undergraduate teaching assistant, helping fellow students with their writing.

Martingayle was most recently named as a CSC Academic All-District Team member yesterday, and was also named the 2022-23 SEC McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
