Eugene, Ore. (WSAW) - Stevens Point native Roisin Willis claimed victory in the 400-meter Nike Outdoor Nationals Championship on Sunday.

Willis, who normally runs the 800-meter, bumped down to the 400-meter race to prepare for her race in the USA U20 National Championships this week. Willis won the race while tying a personal-best time of 52.64 seconds. The time was also the fourth-fastest 400-meter time run in the 2022 outdoor track and field season.

Willis will race in the U20 USA National Championships next weekend in the 800-meters, a race she has the second-fastest time in.
