GREENSBORO, N.C. — Three local athletes competed in this weekend’s New Balance Nationals Outdoor track and field meet at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, N.C.
Ticonderoga’s Jay Hebert was on hand to run the 110-meter hurdles. The junior finished second in his preliminary heat, but his time of 14.35 seconds was a few tenths shy of landing him in the finals. Hebert was ninth overall, and the top eight advanced. The fastest qualifying time for the event was 13.95.
