Competing in the sprints at LSU as D'Andre Hill, she helped the Tigers to three consecutive NCAA titles from 1994 through '96, and won three individual NCAA titles in the 100 meters (outdoors) and 55 meters (indoor) and also was part of the Tigers' 4x100 relay teams that won three consecutive NCAA titles. She advanced to the 100-meter semifinal at the 1996 Atlanta Games.
