Felicien earns more All-America honors

DURHAM, N.C. – Illinois freshman Perdita Felicien capped her first season with more All-American honors Saturday at the NCAA outdoor track and field championships.

Felicien finished sixth in the 100-meter hurdles in 13.07 seconds. On Friday, she ran a leg on the UI's fifth-place 4x100 relay.

"I couldn't have asked any more from my freshman year," Felicien said. "To come to my first NCAA meet and run on a relay team that finished fifth and to score in the hurdles, I'm very happy about that."

LSU's Joyce Bates won the 100 hurdles with a career-best 12.85. Felicien had qualified in 12.91.

"I'm a little disappointed that I didn't place higher in the hurdles but the way I look at it is I still have three more years left and no one has heard the last from me yet," she said.
