IOWA CITY, Iowa – Peta-Gay Williams set a new facility record in winning the women’s 60m hurdles for Florida State on Saturday’s (21 Jan) final day of the Larry Wieczorek Invitational at the University of Iowa.

Williams, a sophomore, edged teammate Nicole Setterington for the 60-meter hurdle title in her season debut, sailing to victory in a lifetime-best 8.24. Her time ranks ninth nationally and is fifth-fastest in FSU history.

Setterington matched her career-best (8.28) to finish second and move into 12th on the national list.
