South Tahoe’s Maya Brosch delivers career-best 300 hurdles time at Arcadia Invitational track meet
ARCADIA, Calif. — At one of the nation’s most competitive and prestigious track meets, Maya Brosch delivered a career performance. The South Tahoe junior was the top finisher in the 300 hurdles open division at the Arcadia Invitational last Saturday, April 9, running a career-best 44.33 in the event.
Brosch topped a field of 36 competitors in the rain in the 300 hurdles, edging Brandi Hughes of Skyline (Sammamish, Wash.) by two-hundredths of a second. Her new top mark eclipsed her previous best of 44.59 set as a freshman at the Div. I-A State championships.
At the two-day invitational held at Arcadia High in Southern California, Brosch’s time was the 10th fastest overall. In addition to the open division, seven girls ran in the invitational race and nine raced in the seeded field. Jurnee Woodward of Vacaville (Calif.) delivered the meet’s top mark of 41.29.
The Arcadia Invitational started in 1968, and has since become the largest outdoor high school meet in the U.S. Entering this year, the meet had produced 26 national records and 152 U.S. Olympians.
