Santo Domingo - Brown senior Anna Willard added to her list of accomplishments by winning the 3,000 meter steeplechase at the 2006 NACAC Under-23 Championships in Santa Domingo over the weekend. Willard's top time of 10:23.23 was 13 seconds faster than second place finisher Cassie King, a two-time All-American in the event.

Willard's time broke the meet record by ten seconds but the highlight for the recent Brown graduate was standing on the podium, representing the United States while the National Anthem played.
