November 29, 2005|By EDWARD LEE | EDWARD LEE,SUN REPORTER

Devon Williams, The Sun's Athlete of the Year for the 2004-05 school year as a sophomore, is no longer competing in track and field for Towson Catholic and has moved to Florida.

Both Devon Williams' father, Robert, and Owls athletic director Jeff Palumbo confirmed that she withdrew from Towson Catholic in the fall.

In a brief telephone interview, Robert Williams said his daughter had moved to Florida to live with her grandmother. Although Williams said his daughter was likely to stay in Florida for the remainder of the school year, he did add that there was a possibility that she could return to Maryland sometime this school year.

Several subsequent phone messages seeking further comment were left for Robert and Paulette Williams, Devon's parents, but they did not return the calls.

According to the Register-Guard, a newspaper in Oregon, Devon Williams had enrolled and was competing for Churchill High School's cross country team in Eugene, Ore. Williams placed ninth in the Midwestern League championships with a time of 20:36, according to dye stat.com.

In other track and field news, Long Reach senior Tiffani Long will sign a letter of intent on Friday to continue her track career at Maryland. Long won the Class 3A state title in the long jump last spring.
