St. Augustine senior Sincere Rhea capped his brilliant indoor track career Sunday with a national championship at the New Balance National Championships.

Rhea and rival and U.S. No. 1 Kurt Powdar of Oscar Smith High in Chesapeake — among among the fastest hurdlers in U.S. track history — lined up next to each other in the final, Rhea in lane 4, Powdar in lane 5, and Rhea easily won, clocking 7.69 while Powdar was unable to finish.

In the prelims on Saturday, Rhea shattered long-standing South Jersey records in the 55- and 60-meter highs and moved into the No. 10 spot in U.S. history in the 55 highs and the No. 12 spot in the 60’s.
