Senior Sierra Williams is bound for Florida St. where she will be part of a highly touted track team.
Williams' off-season preparation for this track season included participation in events designed to provide a high level of competition.
A brief conversation with Williams revealed her excitement for the current season. "I went to meets where there was good competition that has helped me prepare for this season. I'm in better shape than ever."
For Williams, her performance on Saturday showed her preparedness as she helped the Lady Bruins cause by either winning individual races or helping win two first places in relays. Williams set a new 100m dash mark after clocking a 12.52. The old mark was 12.74 set by Williams in 2010.
Williams' time in the 200 meter dash was 25.34 with teammate Summer Herman placing fifth.
The two relays that Williams helped win first place were the 400 and 800m relays. In the 800m relay, the Lady Bruins established a new school record, and also broke the Delta Invitational Meet record, with a time of 1:46.78. Glenwood set the old record (1:48.39) back in 2009. Joining Williams on the 400m team were Tani Zamarripa, McIntire and Herman.
Members of the 800m relay team included Williams, McIntire, Rachael Latta and Rebecca Deal.
The 800m sprint medley team of Zamarripa, Latta, Herman, and Mackenzie Kehmeier placed third in that race.
Cedaredge scored 15 points in long jump competition with Deal getting the win and Latta placing fourth.
Kissner finished fifth in the high jump and eighth in the discus for the Lady Bruins.
