USC's TeeTee Terry Named To Bowerman Pre-NCAA Indoor Watch List
TeeTee Terry was named to The Bowerman 2021 Women's Pre-NCAA Indoor Watch List, announced by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) today (March 3). Additionally receiving votes for The Bowerman, but just outside of the top 10, was Angie Annelus. The Bowerman is awarded annually at the end of the track and field season to the most outstanding track and field athlete.
Terry, from Miami, Fla., remained on The Bowerman Watch List as she bettered her national-leading mark in the 60m to 7.13 at the Texas Tech Shootout on Feb. 12. She owns the two fastest times during the indoor season, having also run 7.14 in January. Terry also had an indoor best of 23.35 in the 200m which she ran in winning at the Razorback Invitational on Jan. 29. That time currently ranks 19th nationally.
Terry, an athletic senior, broke her own school record in the 100m dash with a time of 10.98 (1.6) to place third at the 2019 NCAA Championships. She also anchored USC's NCAA champion 4x100m relay which set the school record in the finals with a time of 42.21. She won her second straight Pac-12 100m title with a time of 11.09 (+0.5), anchored the winning 4x100m relay and placed third in the 200m. In the summer of 2019, she was second in the 100m at the NACAC U23s. Terry also reached the 2019 USATF Championships finals in the 100m dash, where she placed fifth with a time of 11.32 (-1.7). The Miami, Fla. native qualified to represent USA at the 2019 World Championships as part of the relay pool, but elected to concentrate on her studies. Indoors, she had a PR of 7.14 to win the 60m title at the 2019 NCAA Indoor Championships, the second-fastest time in school history.
Annelus has exhausted her indoor eligibility, but should be rounding the outdoor track shortly. The athletic redshirt senior, became a two-time NCAA 200m champion when she won the 2019 title with a PR, USC and facility record time of 22.16 (+1.3), the fourth-fastest time ever by a collegian. She became just the fourth woman to win the NCAA women's 200m title in consecutive seasons and only one (Kimberlyn Duncan of LSU) has won it three times. Annelus also placed seventh in the 2019 NCAA 100m dash finals with a time of 11.12 (+1.6). Annelus ran the second leg of USC's NCAA Champion 4x100m relay which ran the school-record time of 42.21. The Grandview, Mo. native scored 14.5 points at the 2019 NCAA Championships, the fourth-most of any athlete at the Championships. Annelus then made USA's team for the 2019 World Championships and placed fourth in the 200m finals.
The next Watch List for The Bowerman will be announced on March 24.
