Janelle Williams Signs Letter of Intent to Run at Boston University

janellel williams Senior cross country and long-distance track star Janelle Williams signed on the dotted line Tuesday, committing to run at Boston University. Surrounded by family, friends, teammates, coaches and the Panther, Williams was all smiles, decked out in her BU swag, including socks and matching nail polish. 

A two-time league champion and three-time state qualifier in cross country, Williams was an important cog in the Panthers claiming their seventh consecutive District 1 Outdoor Track and Field championship this past spring.

Williams, who plans to major in finance, said she chose BU for its great mix of academics and athletics.

Williams' signing is the first of Cheltenham’s four Division 1 signings this week, with the high school hosting signing events for basketball student-athletes Zahree Harrison and Jaelan McGlone and track and field standout Brianna Smith putting pen to paper later this week.
