UGA Signee Kendell Williams named Gatorade Athlete of the Year

Kell High School's Kendell Williams, who will join UGA Track and Field this fall, has been named the 2012-2013 Gatorade National Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year.

The Marietta native recently scored 5,481 points in winning the heptathlon at the USA Junior Track & Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, earning her the right to compete in the Pan Am Junior Athletic Championships in Medellin, Columbia on August 23-25. She'll be joined in South America by her brother, Georgia freshman Devon Williams, who competes in the decathlon.

Congratulations to her and her family.
