St. Aug's Williams injured

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Friday, October 4, 2019 at 12:00:00 am

Below is a statement from the family of St. Augustine’s athletics director/track coach George Williams:

“While in Qatar for the World Track and Field Championships, Coach George Williams was involved in a vehicle accident. He has serious injuries but is alert, responsive and expected to fully recover. He is under great medical care in Qatar and will remain here for treatment. The family is truly appreciative of all the support and ask that you continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.”

Williams was the 2004 U.S. Olympic track & field head coach. He has won more NCAA national championships (39) than any active coach regardless of division and sport.
