Wilmington Tatnall's Julie Williams Commits to Villanova

On November 10th of this year Julie Williams of Wilmington, Delaware's Tatnall High School committed to run for Gina Procaccio's Villanova women's team. Williams committed after finishing second at the Delaware state cross country meet, where she ran 19:12.54 over the 5000 meter course. To date, Williams has found most success over 800, 1600, and 5000 meters.

Last weekend Williams finished 18th (for the second straight year) at the Nike Cross Nationals Southeast Regional in Cary, NC. At the race, she improved her time from 2011 (18:31.40) to 18:15.50, a new PR. In 2011 Williams qualified for Nike Cross Nationals, where she finished 120th. In late September of this year, she came 23rd at the Great American Cross Country Festival, also in Cary, NC, running 18:22.40.

On the track, Williams finished third at the 2012 Delaware State meets (both indoor and outdoor) in both the 800 meters and 1600 meters.

Julie's Mile Split page can be seen HERE. She presently boasts PRs of:
 2:16.00 (800 meters)
 4:55.07 (1600 meters)
10:27.47 (3000 meters
11:12.00 (3200 meters)
18:15.50 (5000 meters)
