Phoenix Brophy Prep's Devon Allen breaks own state record in high hurdles

By

Phoenix Brophy Prep senior Devon Allen, who got a late start to the track and field season because of an injury, broke his own state record in the 110-meter high hurdles Saturday during the Mt. Sac Relays in Walnut, Calif.

Allen quickly pulled away from the pack and finished first in 13.50 seconds. The state mark was 13.52 that Allen ran as a junior.

“Not too bad for third race of the year and very little training,” Brophy hurdles coach Tim O’Neil said.

Allen was part of Brophy’s 4×100 relay that finished third in 41.51.

Yuma Cibola senior Bernie Montoya finished second in both the mile (4:09.18) and the 800 meters (1:52.40) at Mt. Sac. Both times were the best of the season for Arizona.

Friday, at the Hohokam Invitational at Mesa Westwood, Phoenix Desert Vista senior Scott Marshall won the pole vault with a height of 17 feet, 1 inch. That is the second-best all-time mark in Arizona, inching closer to Nick Hysong’s state record of 17-4 3/4 set in 1990 when he was Tolleson. Marshall had earlier this season vaulted 17 feet, tying Garrett Starkey of Chandler Basha for second-best all time.
