Top Maryland High School Performances At 2017 AAU Junior Olympics

Nadia Hackett

The second athlete from Baltimore Poly to place in the top three at this year's AAU Junior Olympics, Hackett came within a few seconds of victory in the 17-18 400 hurdles. The state of Maryland went 1-3 in the event with Hackett finishing at 1:01.92, just behind Tylar Colbert. The time was also just off of her personal best, which she set earlier this summer in a fifth-place effort in the Emerging Elite division at New Balance Outdoor Nationals. Hackett also came back with another top-five finish, this time placing fourth in the finals of the 17-18 girls 100 hurdles.
