R-H's Sammy Watson wins NCAA Championship in 800M
We knew she was a winner from her time here in the Rochester area, but Sammy Watson proving herself at the collegiate level over the weekend. Watson won the 800 meter NCAA Championship in Oregon on Saturday, Sammy is just the third freshman in history to win the title.
So what's next for Sammy? She will, of course, look to defend her title as a sophomore. But it's hard not to look even farther down the road when it comes to Watson, who wants to compete in the 2020 Olympic Games.
And considering how she's approached, and run through her goals so far in her young track and field career, it's hard not to expect that dream to become a reality.
