FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Former Mississippi State track and field
all-American Tiffany McWilliams won her first professional race on
Friday night at the Tyson Invitational held at the night at the Randal
Tyson Indoor Track Facility on the campus of the University of
Arkansas. McWilliams' win may be seen on ESPN2 Sunday evening beginning

McWilliams ran the mile run in 4 minutes, 30. 60 seconds to break her
previous facility record set in 2004.

had the lead. She fell behind and came back. She kicked it out during
the last 100-meters."

Championships, scheduled for Feb. 24-26 at the Reggie Lewis Track &
Athletic Center in Boston.
