Another student-athlete at Bryan County High School will compete at the college level after Kimberly Williams earned a track scholarship with Chattahoochee Technical College in Marietta.
Williams, who signed with the school last week, has twice finished second in the state in the high jump and was a key member of the Lady Redskins track and field team which finished in a tie for fifth at the Class A meet in May.
Williams placed second in the high jump, seventh in the 300-meter low hurdles, eighth in the 400 and was a member of the school's fifth-place 4x400 relay team in 2011.
Bryan County track coach Blake Nesmith said Williams' athletic ability caught the eye of the CTC coach and talked with her about attending his school. She decided to accept his offer and will enroll in the fall.
"I am very proud of Kim and all of her accomplishments." Nesmith said. "She is an outstanding young lady with a lot of talent. She was born with the ability to excel at track, but it has only been through three years of hard work that she has been able to get this far. I know that she has a bright future at CTC and beyond. They have an outstanding junior college track program and Kim has a good chance to move on to a bigger school after a year or two if she develops like I think she will."
