Tide’s Burchell Repeats As Sprint Cham

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Alabama senior Remona Burchell blazed to her second NCAA 60-meter championship Saturday night in Fayetteville after posting a time of 7.12. With the win, she becomes Alabama’s first repeat NCAA individual champion.

Burchell, who set the collegiate record at 7.08 at last month’s Southeastern Conference Championships bettered the rest of the field by 9/100ths of a second. USC’s Ky Westbrook clocked a 7.21 for second place while Jasmine Todd of Oregon was third with a 7.22.

Burchell’s 7.12 in finals marks the third fastest 60m time in Alabama history and gives her the six fastest times in Crimson Tide history and eight of the top 10.
