COACH HELMER: "La Toya is a little bit of nothing that can flat get down the track. She really came into her own her senior year highlighted by her windy 11.64 second place finish at the Texas Relays. She continued to race consistently until injury slowed her at the end of her season. She works hard and has very good range. If she picks up where she left off in June she will be a force to be reckoned with in the Big Ten very, very soon."
