Hebert set section record
Jay Hebert of Ticonderoga set a school and Section VII record in winning the 55-meter hurdles at the Dartmouth Relays Jan. 12.
Hebert ran 7.54 seconds in a preliminary round to break the record he already held, then ran 7.51 in the finals to win.
Hebert is the first Section VII athlete to ever win an event at the Dartmouth Relays, according his coach, Walter Thorne.
Hebert won the New York State Public High School Athletic Association small-school championship in the 110-meter hurdles last spring. He then won the New York Federation championship, which pits the top eight runners from schools of all sizes.
Hebert went undefeated last spring with a best time of 14.07 seconds — the fastest time in New York and the fourth fastest high school time in the nation, according to his coach. The Olympic B qualifying standard is 13.72 seconds. Now a junior, he’s only 1.2 seconds away from the world record in the 110 hurdles held by Cuba’s Dayron Robles.
