Right from the start, Wilson took control of the race, leaving her competitors trailing behind. Even the presence of Talitha Diggs, Florida’s reigning USA national champion in 2022, couldn’t slow Wilson down.

As Wilson powered into the final straight, she maintained a significant lead, crossing the finish line with another outstanding performance at the Bernie Moore Track Stadium. According USTFCCCA, Wilson is now the 17th fastest woman in history and the 4th fastest American woman.

Texas A&M’s Tierra Robinson-Jones staged a late surge, finishing strong with a personal best time of 50.54 seconds to claim second place. Diggs, despite her best efforts, settled for third place with a season best time of 50.74 seconds.

In the women’s 400m final, Arkansas amassed a total of 16 points. Aaliyah Pyatt (51.42), Nickisha Pryce (51.49), and Rosey Effiong (52.05) secured the sixth, seventh, and eighth spots, respectively.
