Willock was very active in sports when she was growing up on St. Croix. Her father, George, a track and field athlete and IAAF-certified coach, actively encouraged and oversaw his children’s participation in sports. Willock’s strengths were in the middle distance running and soccer.
She was very close to her St. Croix Track Club coaches, Mireille and Keith Smith, and traveled extensively with the club to competitions. She is fondly remembered by her former St. Croix teammates, classmates and her many friends. She was the oldest of the Willock’s children. She was an excellent role model.
