MILESPLITCA TASTY RACE OF THE WEEK
* * *
As of Tuesday afternoon, the MileSplit database listed four of the top 25 boys all-conditions 100-meter dash times in the country came out of Heat 17 at Saturday's Redondo Track Festival.
There, enjoying the push of a 3.8-meters-per-second wind, Simi Valley (SS) junior Jaelon Barbarin and Servite (SS) senior Max Thomas each recorded a national-leading time of 10.37 seconds. Barbarin got the win with a strong lean at the line as the two Southern Section sprinters currently sit atop the U.S. rankings for all-conditions 100-meter dashes.
