2024 has been a record-breaking year for West Virginia track and field runner Cassandra Williamson.

The redshirt junior and Ajax, Ontario, Canada native had already set two all-time best marks for the program this winter during indoor season, adding her name to the 600-meter run and 800-meter run. Now, she has blown past the outdoor 800-meter record this weekend as well.

Williamson finished 31st out of a nationally competitive 238-women field at the Bryan Clay Invitational in Azusa, Calif. on Friday evening. She ran a time of 2 minutes, 04.51 seconds in the event at the meet, breaking her own school record set in 2022 by over three-tenths of a second. Her mark came within one-tenth of a second of her all-time personal best in the event, which came during her indoor record earlier this year.

Williamson's time would stand as the 27th-best nationally in Division 1 and 16th-best in the NCAA East Region headed into the weekend, though a full list of updated times from this weekend's meet has not been updated to the national lists.
