The excellent sophomore season continued for St. Anthony’s Asjah Atkinson on Saturday at the CIF Southern Section Track & Field Masters Meet. Atkinson claimed Masters gold in the 100 hurdles with a time of 14.08, and led a strong Long Beach performance as Wilson’s Rachel Glenn finished third in the event.
Atkinson started the day off in the long jump, where she went 19-02.25 to claim third. Once Atkinson surpassed 19 feet she elected to pass the rest of her jumps, assured that would be good enough for a top six placement and a berth in the CIF State Meet next weekend. The hurdles time was a PR for Atkinson, and the No. 5 time in the State this year.
