Contenders v. Defenders: 3A

Girls 300 Hurdles

2016 Winner: Nadia Hackett (Baltimore Poly) 44.32

Hackett's chances of repeating as the 3A 300 hurdle state champion were a lot stronger before defending 4A champion Tylar Colbert transferred to Franklin this year. Now it's shaping up for a fantastic rare matchup at the state meet between two defending state champions. The two gave perhaps a preview on Saturday at the Bullis Bulldog Invitational where both ran the 400 hurdles, with Colbert finishing second and Hackett eighth (albeit just two seconds apart). Nevertheless the Baltimore City and 3A North Regional meets should provide an even better look at the possible state meet matchup.
