2014-15 (Senior)
Won two national championships in 2015 and came a few tenths shy of winning a third ... USTFCCCA National Track Athlete of the Year by Division I coaches ... Won the 60-meter hurdles indoors, the 100m hurdles outdoors, and took second in the 400m hurdles outdoors ... Her times in the 100m hurdles (12.50) and 60m hurdles (7.87) make her the third fastest college woman ever, trailing only Ginnie Powell and Bowerman winner Brianna Rollins in both events, and she is the fifth-fastest collegian ever in the 400m hurdles ... Her times are all the more impressive considering they came within 35 minutes of one another. For context, Harrison’s NCAA-winning 100m hurdles time of 12.55 (making her the No. 2 performer in the world this year) would have equaled the Bronze Medal performance at the 2013 IAAF World Championships, while her 400m hurdles time  of 54.09 (also ranked No. 2 in the world this year) would have equaled the Silver Medal Performance as the last World Championships, and none of the women in that 2013 World Championship Final had run a race earlier that day or the day prior ... Won SEC championships in both short hurdles, in fact she went undefeated indoors and outdoors in short hurdles finals this year.
