January 29, 2022
NEW YORK — 2018 NCAA champion Aleia Hobbs (adidas) closed down the leaders in the final 40 meters to get the women’s 60 in 7.11, but the big story was that high school junior Shawnti Jackson, of Raleigh, NC, ran 7.18 for third place to break the girl’s indoor high school national record of 7.19 held jointly by Ashley Owens (2004 at altitude) and Tamari Davis (2020)
Jackson, the 16-year old daughter of 2005 world 400mh champ Bershawn ‘Batman’ Jackson (he also is her coach), came in with a pb of 7.24.
