St. Augustine junior Sincere Rhea completed a fast hurdles double Saturday by winning the 110-meter high hurdles in 14.03 at the state Parochial A meet at Franklin Township.
Rhea, who won the intermediates Friday in a personal-best 54.62, lowered his high hurdles PR from 14.14 – at the South Jersey Invitational – to 14.03. He remains unbeaten this year in both the intermediates and the highs. He ranks No. 2 in South Jersey this spring in the intermediates and No. 1 in the highs. His 14.03 is fastest by a South Jersey junior since Isaac Williams ran 13.99 in 2011.
The only faster hurdler in South Jersey is Quentin Bundy of Pleasantville, who was second in the Group 2 race Friday in 54.47.
Rhea is the first South Jersey hurdler to run as fast as 14.03 and 54.62 the same year since Washington Township’s Devon Carter in 2010. Carter ran 13.96 and 52.72.
