Ziyah Holmes… Remember that name!
The University of Michigan was competing in the Simmons-Harvey Invitational in Ann Arbor over the weekend. The Michigan team was down by seconds when their anchor Ziyah got the baton. Not only is Ziyah a freshman, but this is her first college meet.
When she got the baton from the 3rd leg, it was almost impossible for her to catch the first place team which happened to be rival Ohio State.
Well, Ziyah did just that! She caught up and won the race.
She got the attention of SportsCenter and tennis legend Billie Jean King!
