Delsea’s Toni Glatz speeds to huge 400-meter dash PR for Ole Miss

Toni Glatz, a Delsea graduate now running for Mississippi, clocked a personal-best 55.91 in the 400 at the Razorback Invitational at the Randall Tyson Track in Fayetteville.

That’s No. 16 in school history but No. 6 excluding over-sized tracks (longer than 200 meters).

Glatz destroyed her PR of 56.15, which she set outdoors as a sophomore at LIU Brooklyn in the spring of 2019. Her previous indoor PR was a 56.99 at the 2019 Northeastern Conference Championships.

Her fastest previous 400 at Ole Miss was a 57.23 a year ago this week at the Texas Tech Shootout in Lubbock, Texas.

Glatz also ran 12.24 and 24.30 outdoors. She has yet to compete outdoors for Mississippi. She’s run 7.92 indoors for 60 meters (while at LIU).

At Delsea, Glatz ran 25.17 and 57.47 outdoors – both at the 2017 sectionals on her home track at Delsea – and was a state medalist in both races. She ran 24.96 indoors in the trials of the 2017 Eastern’s.

Glatz’s father is former Triton hurdles star Anthony Acklin, who coaches sprinters at Mississippi. Acklin placed second in the 55-meter hurdles at the 2001 indoor Meet of Champions and third in the 110-meter highs at the outdoor Meet of Champions.
