Rowan senior Aspen McMillan ran within 8-100ths of a second of her personal-best and school-record time in the 60-meter high hurdles Friday in the TRIALs at the All-Atlantic Regional Championships in Ithaca, N.Y.
She’ll race in the final on Saturday, and she’s the top seed in the final by a whopping 32-100ths of a second over No. 2 seed Erin MacDougall, a senior at SUNY Geneseo in New York.
McMillan ran 8.80, breaking the meet record of 8.84 that she set in the trials at last year’s meet. She came back the next day to win the final in 8.88.
McMillan, a Kendall Park native and South Brunswick High graduate, set the Rowan school record of 8.72 last year, when she placed second in the NCAA Division 3 Championships in Birmingham, Ala., earning All-America honors. She’s also earned All-America honors twice outdoors as a member of Rowan’s 400-meter relay team.
She’s already ranked No. 3 in the U.S. this year in Division 3 with her 8.77 to win the New Jersey Athletic Conference title at Ocean Breeze last month.
