FRISCO – Louise Webb carved out a place for herself on the school’s all-time individual performance list this past Saturday en route to taking home the 800-meter crown at the University of Houston Indoor Opener, and the Southland Conference has taken notice, naming her the conference’s Track Athlete of the Week on Wednesday.
Webb, a native of Southampton, England, completed the race with an adjusted time of 2:15.62 seconds, which ranks as the best time by a conference athlete this season by more than a full second. Webb was competing in her first career track event for the Red and White after transferring from the University of Southampton last year.
A crucial member of the Southland Championship-winning women’s cross country team last fall, Webb is looking to continue to impress as the track team sets out for the Texas A&M 12-Team Invitational, which is scheduled for Friday in College Station.
