Herring Sets Hurdles Mark, HP Girls Win

Highland Park once again defended its home track by finishing atop the team standings at the annual Tracy Wills Invitational meet on Saturday at Germany Park.

The Lady Scots had several individual event winners, including Hattie Speicher (long jump and triple jump), Kayla Dickerson (800), Ellie Preston (1,600), Emory Rhodes (100 hurdles), Savannah Hinze (300 hurdles), Callie DeSchryver (high jump), and Ailey Fidler (pole vault).

HP also took the 4×100 and 4×400 relays in its final tuneup prior to the District 13-5A meet on April 11-13 in Mesquite.

Meanwhile, for the HP boys, Luke Herring broke a 49-year-old school record in the 300 hurdles with a time of 38.05 seconds at the Goldsmith Relays on March 31 in Lewisville.

Besides Herring’s blistering performance — he also was the runner-up in the 110 hurdles — John Rutledge won the 200 for HP. The Scots finished third as a team in a powerhouse field behind Flower Mound Marcus and Duncanville.
