Winslow’s Shakira Dancy wins 200 at Big Ten Invite for Michigan State!

Michigan State’s Shakira Dancy, a graduate of Winslow Township, won the 200 Friday at the Big Ten Invitational Indiana #2 with a collegiate PR.

Dancy ran 24.26 into a 0.2-meters-per-second wind, out-racing second-place Hannah Waller of Michigan, who ran 24.45.

Dancy ran 24.23 last weekend in Iowa City, but that was assisted by a 3.4-MPS wind, and anything over 2.0 is considered wind-aided and not eligible for records and performance lists.

Dancy’s previous college wind-legal PR was a 24.79 indoors at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, in February. That’s an oversized track, so it’s not eligible for indoor records but is considered a legal overall mark.

At Winslow, Dancy ran 23.85 at the 2017 sectionals (with no wind gauge). She was the 2016 Meet of Champions winner in the 200 and a M-of-C runner-up in high school both in the 100 and 400.

Dancy also equalled her collegiate 100 PR Friday with a 12.00. She ran 57.33 last month.

Dancy is a transfer from Florida, where she competed through the middle of the 2020 indoor season.
