Junior track athlete Waseem Williams was named the Big Ten’s Track Athlete of the Week on Wednesday following a conference best performance at the UTSA Invitational.
Williams set the No. 6 mark in the nation and top spot in the conference in the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.41 seconds in the event.
The same day he set a conference-best time in the 200-meter dash with a mark of 21.41 seconds. He competed in the men’s 4x100 relay and 4x400 relay later in the day.
In February, Williams finished as the runner-up in the Big Ten Indoor Championships and in 2018, he was the conference champion in the 100-meter dash.
With the season underway, Williams will be looking to replicate his success from last year.
