UW Recruit Flood Wins Fourth Drake Relays Title
Husky track and cross country recruit Katie Flood made history today with her fourth consecutive victory in the high school girls 3,000-meter run at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa.
Flood, who attends Dowling Catholic of West Des Moines, broke her own personal meet and stadium record with a winning time of 9:43.39. That bettered the time she ran as a freshman in 2007 of 9:44.96. Flood topped her own teammate, Ashlie Decker, by nine seconds for the win.
According to the Des Moines Register, Flood is the third girl to win an individual event four times at the meet. Abby Emsick of Council Bluffs Lewis Central took the discus from 1999 to 2002 and Debbie Carroll of Collins won the 100-yard dash from 1971 to 1974.
Flood was the Nike Cross National Champion in the fall and a Top-10 finisher at Footlocker Cross Country Nationals as well.
