Kenyanna Wilson has been in the track and field competitive spotlight since high school, participating in the IAAF World Junior Championships competing as a member of the United States 4x100m team. She helped the United States earn a gold medal in the 4x100m relay at the 2007 Pan American Junior Championships in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and ultimately signed with Louisiana State University with a personal best time of 11.37 seconds.
After high school, Kenyanna only continued to excel on the track. When not studying for psychology exams, she found the time to earn All-American honors, to compete in the 100m dash at the NCAA Championships, to clock a seasonal and new personal best in the 200m (23.76), and to win the 60m at the Bayou Bengal Invitational all as a freshman.
In 2009 Kenyanna really found her stride and made herself known as one of the nation's premier sprinters. She earned another All-American honors, and finished third in the 60m at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships with a time of 7.27 seconds while setting a new personal best with a time of 7.24. Gaining another All-American honors with a third place finish in the 100m at the NCAA Outdoor meet, Kenyanna also set a new personal best of 11.20 seconds. She was also crowned SEC Champion in the 100m and earned All-SEC honors for the first time recording another new personal best in the 200m with a time of 23.44. All the while, Kenyanna stayed on top of her studies and got on the Academic Honor Roll.
2010 gave Kenyanna the chance to continue the upward trajectory of her track and field career. She performed admirably all season, getting second in the 4x100m relay at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Oregon and setting a new all-time personal best in the 200m with a time of 23.24.
In addition to graduating college with a degree in Psychology in the spring of 2011, Kenyanna also managed to run two new personal bests in the 2011 season. In College Station, Texas she ran the 60m in 7.18 seconds and most recently in Eugene, Oregon, she ran the 100m in 11.19 seconds.
