Katie Flood voted by coaches as USTFCCCA West Region Indoor Track Athlete of the Year, plus hot links...

NEW ORLEANS--University of Washington sophomore Katie Flood (left/photo courtesy University of Washington) was named by the USTFCCCA as its Division I West Region indoor female track athlete of the year.

This award was voted on by the head coaches in each region. She's the second Husky to win the award, as Katie Follett won the honor in 2010 en route to finishing second in the mile.

Flood, a sophomore from Des Moines, Iowa, recorded the fastest collegiate times this season in the Mile, 3000-meters, and as a member of Washington's top-ranked Distance Medley Relay (10:55.01). Her mile time of 4:28.48 is the fourth-fastest in NCAA history indoors, and her time in the 3000-meters of 8:55.31 ranks among the top ten ever recorded indoors by a collegian, and the No. 5 time by an American collegiate indoors or outdoors. All three times are Washington school records.

She is entered in the 3000 at this weekend's NCAA indoor championships in Nampa, Idaho, as well as in the distance medley relay.
