BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Oregon's Lauren Rain Williams won the 200-meter title Sunday at the USATF Junior Outdoor Track & Field Championships and finished as one of five Duck freshmen to make Team USA for next month’s IAAF World U20 Championships.
The top two finishers in each event at the USATF Junior meet earned the chance to represent the U.S. on the global stage, July 10-15 in Tampere, Finland.
Williams ran a wind-aided 22.84 seconds Sunday to win the girls 200.
For the second consecutive year, Cooper Teare placed second in the boys 1,500 in 3:49.88. He also was second in the 5,000 on Friday.
Like Teare, Joseph Anderson will represent the U.S. for the second straight year after his runner-up performance in the 110 hurdles on Friday, Anderson was second in the 110 hurdles last year before winning the bronze medal at the Pan American Championships in Peru.
Jasmin Reed and Shae Anderson also will accompany Team USA to Finland, with Reed as a member of the 4x100 relay pool and Anderson included in the 4x400 relay pool. Reed placed fourth in the 200 and sixth in the 100 this past weekend. Anderson finished sixth in the 400 on Sunday.
A sixth UO freshman, Keira McCarrell, will represent Canada in Finland after earning a spot in the javelin thanks to her throw of 171 feet, 1 inch, during the NCAA West Preliminary meet May 24.
Incoming freshman Josh Hoey won an 800 title over the weekend and will compete in Finland.
