Angela Williams Wins NCAA Indoor 60m Dash Championship
March 11, 2002
USC sprint sensation Angela Williams added another title to her already impressive resume by winning the indoor 60-meter dash championship at the 2002 NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships held at the University of Arkansas' Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetville, Ark., on Saturday (Mar. 9).
It's the first NCAA indoor title for Williams, who has won the NCAA outdoor 100-meter championship an unprecedented three times. She blazed to the win in a meet-record 7.13 to soundly defeat Taheshia Harrigan of Minnesota (7.22) and Muna Lee of LSU (7.23).
Despite being the only USC athlete at the NCAA Indoor Championships, Williams still led the Women of Troy to a 22nd-place finish with the 10 points her championship garnered.
Williams is the owner of the collegiate 60-meter record at 7.09, which she ran last summer while winning a silver at the World Indoor Championships in Lisbon, Portugal, and is the USC record-holder in the 100-meters (11.04).
