Hillsborough senior Narricka Williams, a member of the Tampa Tribune’s first team all-Hillsborough County track squad, has narrowed her list of college choices to Florida International University and Alabama State University.

Williams, an honors student at Hillsborough, was also considering the University of Central Florida but has decided to remove the Knights as an option.

Williams was the county’s No. 2 hurdler behind Riverview senior Ashley Favors. Williams owns personal records of 14.59 secods for the 100-meter hurdles and 44.61 for the 300 hurdles. She also picked up the triple jump this spring, posting the county’s No. 4 mark at 36 feet, 8 inches.

Another Hillsborough track athlete trying to decide where to continue thier track career is senior Carlos Flores. He was part of all-county teams in the 4x800 and 4x400 relays this season and, like Williams, is considering Alabama State.

In other Hillsborough track news, sophomore Jeremiah Green turned in an outstanding performance at last weekend’s BAYTF youth meet at South Florida. Just a week after spring football ended, Green posted winning marks in the triple jump (46-3) and long jump (22-4) and ran 21.70 in the 200 to finish third behind Spoto standout Eric Moate.
