Senior Zykeria Williams joined several other national elite track and field student athletes this week, by signing a National Letter of Intent. Williams, a school and state record holder in several track events, will be joining the Track & Field Team at Big 10 powerhouse Indiana University.
Williams is looking forward to joining the Hoosiers program this summer, after what she hopes will be a strong senior season this spring. Zykeria, affectionately known around BHS as Zy, has competed on the national level for several years through USATF and AAU.
She began to turn collegiate coaches heads after her second place finish, as a freshman, in the GHSA 4A 200 meter dash in 2014. The following year, Zy lead the Bravettes relay team to a state runner up title and a new state record while serving as the anchor leg in the 4 x 100m Relay.
Zykeria plans to major in criminal justice at IU and hopes to enter law school after trying out for the Olympic Team in 2020. Congratulations Zy! You have made us all proud!
