Hebert breaks own Section VII hurdles record

NEW YORK — A Section VII 55-meter hurdles record was broken Saturday at the New Balance Games, but this time it wasn’t Northeastern Clinton’s Mallory Honan who set the pace.

Ticonderoga’s Jay Hebert ran a 7.43-second sprint to take first in the event, which was held at the New Balance Track and Field Center.

Hebert almost broke the track record of 7.42 seconds.

The run marked the third time this season that Hebert has broken his own record this year, Ticonderoga coach Walter Thorne wrote in an email.

Seton Catholic’s Mitchell Ryan also competed Saturday, taking fifth in the boys’ invitational one-mile steeple chase in a time of 4 minutes, 50.81 seconds. Christian Alvarado of Fairfield Prep in Fairfield, Conn., won in a time of 4:39.68.
