Sydney McLaughlin continues her assault of the 400 meter intermediate hurdles. It has been a fascinating first year of college, as Coach Edrick Floreal developed her leg speed through the indoor and outdoor season. In her 400 meter hurdle opener, Ms. McLaughlin ran 53.60 for the 400 meter hurdles, breaking the WJR (yep, her own).
