Caitlin Wilson, a senior enrolled at Godby High School in Tallahassee, Florida, signed a National Letter-of-Intent to enroll at San Jose State University and compete for the track and field team. Head coach Jeff Petersmeyermade the announcement.

Wilson is the first sprint specialist to sign with the Spartans since the University's women's track and field program began last fall.

At the 2013 Florida Class 2A State Championships meet in Jacksonville, Wilson was seventh in the 100 meters, third in the 200 meters and ran the anchor leg on Godby High's championship 4x100 meter relay team. She has best times of 11.97 in the 100 and 24.51 in the 200. The versatile sprinter also has a best time of 56.60 in the 400-meter dash - eighth best among returning seniors in the state of Florida.

"We are delighted to add Caitlin to an already talented inaugural signing class. She is a versatile sprinter who Coach (Kelley) Watson is confident will have a bright future as a Spartan," said Petersmeyer.

Wilson is the fourth high school track and field senior to sign a National Letter-of-Intent with San Jose State. Earlier, long-jump and triple-jump specialists Kelsey Johnson-Upshaw of Timberview High and Nicole Iloanya of Bowie High, two schools in Arlington, Texas, and Cambree Harbaugh from Mountain View High in Meridian, Idaho signed a National Letter-of-Intent.
