The Texas Tech Track Coach had a GREAT stint at ACU and has been bringing high caliber talent to the South Plains since he came to Lubbock. One has to wonder though, how many of these displaced kids would have been a lock for LSU if they had not moved to different locales? http://www.lubbockonline.com/stories/051306/col_051306015.shtml Tech nabs top prep 800 meter runner With the Big 12 Conference track and field meet beginning Friday, the Texas Tech track team announced it had signed the nation's premier high school 800-meter runner in Karjuan Williams for the 2006-07 season. Williams, a native of New Orleans who was relocated to New Bern, N.C., after Hurricane Katrina, trains with former all-American Nocholas Sparks at New Bern HS. He was named the 2006 indoor male athlete of the year by Track and Field News magazine with personal bests of 1:50.14 in the outdoor 800, 1:50.68 in the indoor 800, 47.14 in the outdoor 400 and 47.99 in the indoor 400. During the indoor season, Williams took first in the 800 at the LSU Invitational (1:51.00) and the Simplot Games in Idaho (1:50.74) and ran a meet-record 1:52.49 at the Indoor Nationals. He also anchored the 800 anchor leg of the sprint medley relay that won at the Indoor Nationals while placing second in the 400 at the Arkansas Invitational in a time of 47.89. Williams' signing brings the number of signees for the fall to 18 for head coach Wes Kittley.
