Last month she was silver medalist in the 200 meters at the World Junior championships in Tampere, Finland, Williams' departure was confirmed by UO athletic department spokesman Nate Krueger. Williams has USC T&F on the home page of her Twitter account. In addition................ Lilli Burdon, Katie Rainsberger, Tanner Anderson and Mick Stanovsek have been granted their release and will transfer. The news first was reported by the Register-Guard. Rainsberger's fourth-place finish in the 2016 NCAA Cross Country Championships led the Ducks to the national title. She scored in the 2017 NCAA Indoor and Outdoor Championships before being hurt for much of the 2018 track seasons. She is a junior. Burdon was third in the 5,000 meters at last spring's NCAA Outdoor Championships. She will be a junior in the upcoming cross country season and a senior in track.
