NEW HAVEN, Conn. — It wasn’t a record-breaking performance in the girls’ 55-meter hurdles for Northeastern Clinton’s Mallory Honan at the 31st-Annual Yale Interscholastic Track Classic Saturday, but it was close.
Honan tied the first Section VII record she set last weekend with an 8.62-second sprint, good enough for fourth place.

Honan went on to break her own record last weekend with an 8.53 run at the 44th-Annual Dartmouth Relays.
Just like a week ago, Betsy Garnick of Gishop Guerin High School in Nashua, N.H., bested Honan, taking the top spot in 8.28 seconds.
Honan also competed in the long jump, taking ninth with a 16-foot, 6-inch jump.
Imani McGhee of Bay Shore won the event with an 18-foot, 5.25-inch jump.
Joining Honan from Section VII were teams from Seton Catholic and Peru.
Seton’s Margaret Champagne took 34th overall in the 3,000m run, while teammate Melissa Whyman followed in 55th with a 10:57.22.
Marissa Saenger of Clarence won the event with a 9:51.92.
