Atlantic’s Jordan Mullen set a Drake Relays record in the 110 hurdles in the prelims then lowered it in the finals with a winning time of 14.05 seconds. Mullen says the coach tells him to stay in the blocks in the prelims and then give it 100 percent in the finals, and that’s what he did.
Mullen says he enjoys the competition and the atmosphere, as he says it’s the best track meet in his eyes. He says you get to run against the best high schoolers in the state and see some of the best college and Olympic performers.
Mullen was surprised he lowered the record in the final, he says he thought the time was slower as he hit a couple of hurdles.
Dike-New Hartford junior Hannah Willms set a record in winning the girls high jump title at 5-11. She edged out West Fork freshman Taylor Twedt. Willms says she was not even thinking about the record and was only thinking of winning the competition.
She says she forgot about the record and was just trying to do her best.
