Kate Hall logs Top 10 track & field finishes at Nationals

Kate Hall of Casco recorded Top 10 finishes at the New Balance Nationals held in Greensboro, N.C., and has been named Maine's Gatorade Track & Field Player of the Year.

On Saturday, the Lake Region junior finished third in the 100 meters with a New England-best time of 11.58 in the prelims and a 11.45 in the final.

On Sunday, she placed eighth in the finals of the 200 meters with a time of 24.01. In the trials, she ran 23.98, which smashed her Maine all-time best set last week and made her the first high school girl from New England to break the 24-second barrier.

She qualified for the long jump finals with 19-feet 0.5-inches on her third jump. This jump had her in eighth place. On her second jump of the finals, Kate went 19-feet 4.25-inches to move into sixth, where she stayed. That mark gave her All-American status. That jump was just shy of her state all-time best of 19-feet 6.75-inches.
