Williams Wins Her Title

NASHVILLE, Tenn., -- When Arkansas' Kasia Williams was bumped in the middle of the women's 100-meter hurdles final Sunday at the SEC Outdoor Championships, she pushed back, not with force, but with pure speed.

Williams, a senior, finally won a conference title beating out three rivals from South Carolina in a time of 13.25.

"I knew I could do it. I just needed to execute. I just wanted to win," Williams said. "We hit all kinds of hurdles in that race."

Williams said she knocked three hurdles in the event.

The importance of the race was that South Carolina was expecting to pick up big points with their sprinters in the hurdles.

Instead they fell on their face. Shevon Stoddart finished third, while Tiffany Ross-Williams failed to finish the race and Ronetta Alexander was disqualified giving the Lady Gamecocks only six points.

"It was very important (for me to win the race)," Williams said. "As a team, I knew we wanted to win. I just wanted to contribute to my team."
