Clayton Valley senior Aiden Jackman may be done for rest of season

The leading hurdler in California will not compete in the hurdles the rest of this season. He ran 13.98 at the Arcadia Invitational but it appeared to me that he had hurt himself in that race. He also ran 37.47 in the 300 hurdles later in the meet to finish in 2nd place in both races. At the Stanford meet, Jackman (Chase Bryson photo to the left) ran 52.85 to win the 400-meter hurdles which at the time was the leading mark in the nation.

Clayton Valley has an unbelievable pool of talent this year including the leading 400-meter runner in the state, Cameron Reynolds at 47.09. At their league meet, CV also had two more 400 runners (Bryson Benjamin at 49.37 and Justin Lowe at 49.44) going sub 50. Their 1600m relay should be quite good even without Jackman.

The last NorCal hurdler to win the 300m hurdles at the state meet was Marquis Morris of DLS in 2014. The last NorCal hurdler to win the 110m hurdles was also Marquis Morris in 2013.

I wrote a similar article at MileSplitCA which you can find at this LINK.
