Running with Virgil Hodge
Aug. 9, 2007
GoFrogs.com recently sat down with TCU sprinter Virgil Hodge as she prepares for the IAAF World Championships in Osaka Japan, later this month.
Hodge, the only female in school history with at least five All-America certificates, won the Female High-Point Award after winning both the 60 and 200 meters at the Mountain West Conference Indoor Championships last winter. She closed out 2007 earning two All-America honors in the 200 meters and as a member of the 4x100 relay team at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
This summer, Hodge, a native of St. Kitts, ran 22.73 in the finals of the 200 meters to place first overall at the North, Central American and Caribbean Championships. She later posted a fourth-place finish in the 200-meter finals at the Pan American Games in Brazil.
The IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Japan, will begin on Aug. 25.
