Wilson holds Hawks indoor school records in the 800, mile and 3,000 and outdoor school records in the 800 and the 1,500.
“I am beyond excited for the opportunity to continue my running career with Atlanta Track Club,” said Wilson, who will move to Atlanta later this summer and be coached by Amy and Andrew Begley. “I have so much left to accomplish and so many more goals to reach. I am grateful this is going to be the place where all these dreams and goals come true.”
In May, Wilson placed fourth in the 800 at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. That strong performance followed up her fifth place finish in the 800 at the indoor championships in March. At Monmouth, Wilson won 13 individual and relay Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference titles and was twice a first team All-American, the only female athlete in school history with that distinction.
