Bryant’s Winn, Hood shine at regional track meet

The Bryant track program was well represented at the 40th Great Southwest Track and Field Classic at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, as John Winn and Haley Hood competed on the Arkansas team. Athletes from 17 different states plus Jamaica were represented at the meet, with states competing against each other in a team competition.

Winn broke his own school record in the 400-meter dash with a time of 48.37, which was good for 10th overall and first in his heat against some of the top 400 runners in the country.

Winn then came back to place fifth in the 200-meter dash in a wind-aided time of 21.66, which is a new personal record and just under the school-record time of 21.92, which was set by Steven Murdock at the 7A State Meet. Since the time was wind-aided, it will be recognized as a wind-aided school record while Murdock will still own the wind-legal school record.

The points earned by Winn in the 200-meter dash were the only points the Arkansas team scored in the boys team competition.

Hood competed in the high jump, clearing 5-2 to place 14th. She then placed 32nd in the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:00.53. The Arkansas girls team scored 25 points to place 10th in the team competition.
