Freshmen sprinters echo upperclassmen’s speed
Both Williams and Alexander had little, if any, experience in the 60m when they arrived at UH. But both have become two of the top runners for the Cougars in the event. One or the other has ran in every meet since the season opener, the Reveille Invitational on Dec. 9.
Their times of 6.77s and 6.79s respectively are No. 5 and No. 6 in the conference. Only Burke and senior sprinter Elijah Hall rank above them from the Cougars.
In addition, Alexander and Williams have the No. 7 and No. 9 conference times in the 200m, running 21.63s and 21.68s respectively.
