Precious Holmes of Hillhouse High School absolutely scorched the field and crushed the meet record with a US#1 time of 1:31.23. The old record was 1:35.06 set back in 2008 by Annelies Gamble of Amity High School, and Holmes was previously ranked US#1 when she ran 1:32.61 at the SCC Coaches Invitational last month. Holmes set another meet record when she crossed the line in the 300m. Her 38.56 surpassed the 1996 record of 39.17 set by Shayla Wallace of Northwest Catholic. Holmes’ 300m time is currently US#2.
Behind record-setting performances from Precious Holmes in the 300 meters and the 600 meters, the Academics captured their first State Open title since 2008 by scoring 74 points to beat Windsor (34) and Glastonbury (34 3/4). It was the sixth State Open title for Hillhouse. (via Courant.com)
