Columbia, S.C. –
For the second consecutive week, USC women’s track and field junior All-American Tiffany Ross-Williams was named Southeastern Conference Runner of the Week. The honor came her extraordinary performance at the 111th Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Pa. last weekend.

Ross-Williams, who has been on a roll the past few weeks, has earned a number of recognitions for her most recent performances. At the prestigious Penn Relays, Ross-Williams won the 400m hurdles with the second fastest time in Penn Relay history of 55.70, finished second in the 100m hurdles with a time of 13.07 and ran on two winning relays, the shuttle hurdle relay and the 4x400m relay. Her split of 50.8 on the third leg of the 4x400m relay led the Gamecocks to a first place finish with a time of 3:28, the second fastest time in Penn Relay history. As a result, she was named the 2005 Penn Relays Most Outstanding College Athlete. Since earning the prestigious honor at the Penn Relays, Ross-Williams has also been named United States Track Coaches Association Athlete and SEC Runner of the Week.

Ross-Williams will be graduating on Saturday, May 7th with a bachelor’s degree in retail before heading to Nashville, Tenn. with the Gamecocks to compete in the SEC Outdoor Championship held on May 12-15.
