Pack signs one of state's top sprinters
The CSU-Pueblo women's track and field program has added one of the top sprinters coming out of the state of Colorado in Rangeview High School grad, Shilay Willis (Aurora, Colo./Rangeview HS), head coach Chad Perry announced Tuesday.
Willis, whose speciality is the 200- and 400-meter sprints, was the Colorado 5A runner-up in the 400-meter with a time of 56.15 in the 2010 Colorado State Championships, which would have won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference championship this season.
At CSU-Pueblo, Willis is expected to allow the ThunderWolves to immediately compete for conference titles in the 400 and 200, and raise the profile of the Pack's already impressive relay teams to a national level of prominence.
Willis joins former Rangeview standout and current ThunderWolf, Danita Wyatt (So., Aurora, Colo.) on the Pack's roster.
"She could win the conference championship in the 400 right now and she is only going to get better," Perry said. "She is a huge addition to our roster and it's a good fit for both her and the CSU-Pueblo track program."
Willis chose CSU-Pueblo over RMAC foes, Adams State and Metro State, and Division-I Southern Methodist.
