Vincent - Justin Lough was a blur in the 300 hurdles.
The Warren High sophomore set a school record in the event Saturday at the Warrior Invitational with a clocking of 39.2 seconds.
Lough’s PR (personal record) in the event was 40.17, which he ran in last season’s regional to qualify for the state track and field meet in Columbus.
Blackburn was the previous school record holder in the hurdles in 39.3, set in 2003.
“I just went out as fast as I possibly could and tried to maintain it down the stretch,” Lough said. “Now, my goal is to run a 38, because I want to go back to state this year.”
Lough was also first in the 110 hurdles in 15.80 and a leg on the winning 4 by 200 and 4 by 400 relay teams.
Overall, host Warren had a good day in its home meet with both the boys and girls finishing first.
The Warrior boys finished with 134 points to second-place New Lexington’s 100. Rounding out the rest of the field were Philo (61), Belpre (56.50), River Valley (50), Fort Frye (48), Morgan (39), and Alexander (32), Meigs (30), South Gallia (4), and Waterford (2.50).
