A top hurdler for Saugus High School’s track and field team, Abbey Bryant broke the Foothill League record for the 110 hurdle run with a time of 14.55 seconds. The previous record of 14.61 seconds was set by Katie Kirst in 2004. Abbey also took first place in the 300 hurdles with a time of 44.96 seconds. She qualified for the CIF Southern-Section prelims in both events.
Abbey also holds the record at Saugus High School, and she broke Wendy Bradshaw’s 1983 record, whose previous time was 15.15, converted from 14.88 (they ran low hurdles in the past).
“She is an amazing athlete who trains hard and is an even better person,” said Kevin Berns, Saugus High School’s track team coach. “Abbey has persevered, overcoming injuries throughout her high school career, which makes her accomplishments even more special.”
