Former Holmwood Technical High School standout Chrissann Gordon claimed Big 12 Track & Field Athlete of the Week awards for Texas
Gordon, a senior from who was a stellar athlete at Holmwoo Technical High in Jamaica, threw down the fastest time in the nation last weekend to win the 400 meters at the LSU Alumni Gold. Her time of 50.64 seconds establishes her as the No. 1 runner in the NCAA with just a few weeks left in the regular season. With that time, Gordon shattered her previous personal best by nearly half a second and she is now the No. 4 performer in school history. Gordon's time also puts her at No. 3 on the world list so far in 2017 and she is .34 of a second ahead of No. 2 on the NCAA list.
