Angela Williams Runs Third Fastest Collegiate Time Ever In The Indoor 60-Meter Dash
Feb. 20, 2001
USC junior Angela Williams, already the two-time defending NCAA 100m outdoor champion, scored big time Saturday afternoon (Feb. 17) at USATF's Golden Spike event in Pocatello, Idaho, as she scooted to a collegiate and U.S.-leading 7.16 to defeat an international-class field in the 60 meter indoor dash.
Williams competes indoors infrequently, but this mark takes her into a tie for No. 3 on the all-time collegiate list. The record, 7.14, was run by Carlette Guidry of Texas in 1991. Later this year, Williams will attempt to become the first woman ever to win three straight NCAA 100m titles.
Chrystie Gaines was second with a time of 7.30, while former Women of Troy trackster Torri Edwards was fourth in the race with a mark of 7.35.
