Former AAU Member Named Pac-12 Track & Field Athlete of the Week

Former AAU Member Named Pac-12 Track & Field Athlete of the Week

Before Harrison Williams was named the Pac-12 Track & Field Athlete of the Week, he was an AAU member participating in qualifiers in the Southern AAU. His parents reached out to Miguel Becerra, Track & Field Sports Director of the Southern AAU to thank him for helping their son enter into a qualifier at the last minute. We love to see AAU alumni succeeding at the collegiate and professional levels! Good job, Harrison!

Men’s Track Athlete of the Week: HARRISON WILLIAMS, STANFORD (Fr., Memphis, Tenn.) Freshman Harrison Williams made his collegiate decathlon debut, and came within 74 points of matching the school’s oldest and most legendary track and field record – that of Bob Mathias in his gold-medal winning effort (7,592 points according to revised scoring tables) at the 1952 Helsinki Olympic Games. Williams scored a Stanford freshman record 7,518 points, the No. 3 score in school history, to finish second overall and first among collegians at the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays. Among those he beat were three competitors from the heptathlon at the recent NCAA indoor championships, including two top-10 finishers. Williams, the defending U.S. junior champ, moved to No. 7 on the all-time U.S. junior list and registered the top collegiate decathlon score in the nation and No. 3 score in the world this year.
