Tori Williams Wins American Athlete OTW

Feb. 7, 2017

PROVIDENCE – Senior sprinter Tori Williams has been named the American Athletic Conference Track Athlete of the Week for her performance at the Charlie Thomas Invitational, the league office announced Tuesday.

Competing in the 200-meter dash, Williams ran 23.63 in heat 10 of a finals-only race to finish second in the heat and fifth overall. The mark for Williams moves her to No. 25 in the NCAA this season according to TFRRS.org.

The award for Williams is her second this year after claiming the honor following the first week of the season. Williams opened her senior season with a 24.15 in the 200, which at the time was the seventh best mark in the nation.

Houston has now won seven American Conference Athlete of the Week awards this season. Last week, senior Cameron Burrell earned his third honor of the year (two track, one field), while Eli Hall (Track), and Brian Barraza (Track) have each garnered the honor.

UP NEXT FOR HOUSTON
Houston will split its squad for a trio of meets next weekend. The Cougars will host the Howie Ryan Invitational on Friday, Feb. 10 at Yeoman Fieldhouse. The remaining athletes will head to the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., on Feb. 10-11, while the distance runners will compete at the Husky Classic in Seattle, Wash., on Saturday.
