RALEIGH, NC – Destinee Williams of the Shaw University women's outdoor track and field team will compete in the 2017 NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships on May 25-27 in Bradenton, Fla., at the IMG Academy.
Recently, Williams was named to the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Association (USTFCCCA) All-Region Team last week.
The Leesburg, Fla., native will compete in the 100-meter hurdles after lowering her preliminary time with a 13.74 in the event which now ranks her nation's 12th-fastest time in the event and a school's record.
