Hall of Fame 2012

Ysanne Williams

Albany High School '98

 

Ysanne Williams was a three-time state champion in the 400 meters and 800 meters during her time at Albany High School.

 

As a junior at Albany High, she was second in the 400 meters at the U.S. Juniors, and at the National Scholastic Indoor Championships she placed fourth in the 400 and seventh in the 800. As a senior, Williams was the fourth-fastest American high school student-athlete in the 800 and ranked No. 17 nationally in the long jump. She represented the United States at the 1997 Pan American Junior Championships in Cuba, placing sixth in the 400 and winning a bronze medal as a member of the 4x400 relay team.

 

She accepted a full track scholarship at UCLA, where she went on to earn All-American status multiple times throughout her career. She was the 800-meter champion at the Pan American Junior Championships in 2000, and in 2008 she competed for the Jamaican Olympic team in the 800 meters.

 

Also in 2008, she was one of the 50 fastest female runners in the world.

 

After graduating from UCLA, Ysanne went on to earn a master’s degree in elementary education from Grand Canyon University. She currently is a sixth-grade reading teacher in the Lubbock, Texas, area and expects to complete her doctorate in educational administration by next year.
