Bama Sophomore SEC Runner Of Year
James is off to a spectacular 2011 campaign, consistently posting eye-catching numbers throughout the indoor season. The Gouyave, Grenada native holds the second fastest time in the world this year in 200m after posting 20.58 at the Cherry & Silver Invitational in January and then claimed the top world time in the 400m the following month with a 44.80 at SEC Indoor Championships. His performance at the SEC Championships set a world junior record and SEC meet record.
The SEC award marks the first time an Alabama male athlete has ever won the SEC Runner of the Year award for the indoor season, since the honor was first given out in 2004. David Kimani won the SEC Athlete of the Year award in 2001, before the honor was split into two designations.
James will travel to College Station, Texas this weekend to participate in the NCAA Indoor Championships. The event hosted by Texas A&M University, will be held Friday and Saturday.
