Tide finishes up indoor season

Just short of a NCAA automatic qualifying mark, junior Wilamena Hopkins won the SEC Championship in shot put over the weekend, scoring 10 of the 33 points that earned the Alabama women’s track and field team a ninth place finish.

Tide expecting huge improvement

The Crimson Tide women’s track and field returned to Tuscaloosa last weekend with 14 new personal bests and two NCAA provisional marks after competing in the 2010 Kentucky Invitational season opener. Sophomore Krystle Schade and Senior Kim Laing were immediate standouts, both earning NCAA provisional marks.
