Coming out of high school as Louisiana’s top prospect in the sprint hurdles, Cassandra Tate began her collegiate track and field career at LSU in 2009. Tate wasted no time showing she was a vital asset to the Lady Tigers as she showed great potential just as a freshman. In 2010, Tate burst on to the track scene claiming her first All-America honor and a silver and bronze medal in the 4x400m relay. Tate proved she was a fast learner as she picked up the 400m hurdles in her sophomore season and won the event in the SEC Championships just a few months later. Concluding her collegiate career, Tate graduated as a 6-time All-American, 4-time SEC Champion, 8-time All- SEC, 2-time NCAA Champion and a degree in management.
Cassandra proved she was an elite athlete in 2012 when she completed the season with 2 gold medals from the NACAC Championships, 2 NCAA gold medals, 1 NCAA silver medal and finished 5th at the 2012 Olympic Trials. Continuing her professional career, Tate made her first World Team at the 2014 World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland. Tate was the anchor of the United States 4x400m Relay Team and ran across the finish line for the gold medal and the world leading time.
