Transcript Fast Woman Collins picks up more gold The Southwest Conference had long been known as a sprinter's paradise, and the 1993 season just re-emphasized the fact. Luckily, Houston just happened to have some of the conference's, no, make that the nation's finest. One of those sprinters was Michele Collins. She entered competitions for both the indoor 55 and 200 meter sprint ranked number one in the nation. She took three gold medals home from that competition. She claimed the 55 and 200 meter dashes and anchored the Lady Cougar's 1,600 relay team to victory in the February indoor meet. She also was ranked highly in the SWC outdoor race where she took the medals for 100 and 200 meter dashes and anchored the 400 relay. "I feel really good about this meet because I'm not a 100 runner," said Collins. "I thought I'd do well in the race if I did the things I'm supposed to, but I couldn't ask for any better." "When I came out of the start (for the 100) I was behind. I just stayed relaxed. Staying relaxed is all you have to do," said Collins. The Lady Cougars weren't expected to win the relay as Cecilia Crockett had to withdraw with stomach flu. Jumper Starlie Graves was put in her place just before the race began. De'Angelia Johnson took Dawn Burrell's hand off on the first exchange, which gave the Cougars a lead over Rice, Texas and Texas A&M. Texas fell out of the race when they dropped a baton exchange. Graves handed off to Collins in third place, but the Cougar senior passed the other two teams in the last 50 meters for the victory in 44.94. Once again, Collins shined as she was invited to race in the World Track and Field Championships in Stutgart, Germany. The invite came after victories at the USA Mobil Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Collins also competed in the University World Games where she picked up two gold medals. The communications major took home wins in the open 400 with a time of 52.01 and the 1,600 relay with at time of 3:26.18. - Michael Edwards 138 Sports Cougar Iratk & Field JVLichele Collins led all other competitions with wins at the SWC and NCAA levels.
