Tide's James Earns Region Track Honor
James, who came to Alabama from Gouyave, Grenada, recently won the NCAA East Region title in the 400m and advanced to this week's NCAA Championships where he hopes to defend his 400m title. His season-best time of 44.86, set in winning the SEC title, is the second fastest in the nation this season and the fourth fastest in the world.
He has also run the second leg of the Crimson Tide's NCAA bound 4x400m relay team and helped the squad clock a season-best time of 3:06.68 at the East Regional by turning in a sub-45 second split.
The honor is James' second from the USTFCCCA. He also earned the association's South Region Track Athlete of the Year following the indoor season.
He begins his defense of the 400m outdoor title on Wednesday at 7 p.m. CDT in the semifinal round at the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa.
