Rancocas Valley graduate Jasmine Staten annihilated her high hurdles PR and ran the 4th-fastest time in NCAA Division 2 Saturday in Baltimore.
Staten, a sophomore at Bloomfield, won the 100-meter highs at the Morgan State Legacy Meet in 13.74. Her previous PR was 13.92 last weekend at the Larry Ellis Invitational at Princeton University, and that was her first time under 14 seconds.
The women’s track page on Bloomfield’s web site does not list school records, and there’s nothing on the site about Staten’s performance.
However, Staten beat a field of Division 1 runners, finishing a step ahead of second-place Catherine Glenn of Delaware State, who ran 13.86. The wind wa a legal minus-1.1 meters per second, so she ran into a headwind. Staten ran 14.01 in the trials, only 9-100ths of a second off her PR.
Staten last competed for Bloomfield in the spring of 2018. She competed for Lenape up through her junior year,, which was 2016, and she never competed for Rancocas Valley. So this is only her second season of competition in the last six years.
