Who scored a double win and became the US No. 1 leader in two sprints?
That's exactly what she did at the NSAF USA Meet of Champions. The junior from St. Dominic Savio Catholic (TX) ran the fastest time in the country in both the 100m and 200m.
In the 100m, Wilson sprinted to a new personal best of 11.51 (0.5), winning the title by 0.06 seconds over fellow Texas sprinter Taejha Badal. Wilson and Badal both battled once again in the 200m, where Wilson had the slight edge by 0.05 when she clocked a 23.64 to Badal's 23.69.
Out of the 1,332 tallies, Wilson earned 606 votes over the week. She totaled 46-percent of the votes. Wilson deserves a huge congratulations for her two US No.1 performances last weekend.
Now let's move on to Week 3 of the outdoor National Performer of the Week poll.
Vote for whom you think should win this week's national honor following this most recent week of action. Voting will end Friday, and we'll recognize the winner every Monday during the unveiling of the newest poll.
