Athlete of the Week

KCChronicle.com/preps Athlete of the Week: St. Charles East girls track’s Britney Williams

Why she was selected:áCompeted as part of record-setting 4x800 and 4x400 relays at Friday’s Kane County Girls Track and Field Meet at Geneva.

St. Charles East senior girls track and field standout Britney Williams helped the Saints to a runner-up finish at Friday’s Kane County Meet at Geneva, completing the anchor leg of the 4x800-meter realay before running the second leg of the 4x400. Both victorious relays established new county records, and Williams’ efforts established her as the St. Charles Bank & Trust-Kane County Chronicle Athlete of the Week. Chronicle sports reporter Kevin Druley caught up with Williams about her night. The following is an edited transcript:

What was your mindset when you took the baton trailing in the [4x400]?
I just tried to relax. Tried not to panic. And I guess I just trusted my training.

Coach [Tim Wolf] threw you and Jordan [Shead] on the 4x800 last-minute. Are you there to stay?
We didn’t expect to do that this year, but we love opportunties, so we’re not really sure where that’s going yet.

How is team morale with the state series on the horizon?
I’m just really proud of my team. I mean, they work so hard and we’re seeing results, and I think it’s really positive. I just can’t stress that [enough]. I love my team so much. They’re doing real well.
