  3. This is one determine young woman. I remember her running down a Canadian high school girl in a relay at Gibson relays several years ago. The young lady from Canada had showboating the heats and Sherika was not having it. She caught her on the line. It was said that she was immediately taken in for a drug test as a result of her magnificent performance.
