Masai Russell Absolutely Dominates 300mH At Bullis Invitational
Bullis (MD) High's Masai Russell made a point on Saturday at the Bullis Bulldog Invitational.
With her dominating US No. 1 300mH performance of 40.70 seconds, the University of Tennessee signee signaled her aspirations of potentially breaking 40 seconds at the distance this season. The time shattered the previous meet record of 44.41 seconds.
That's certainly within striking distance now, and her time stands as the No. 17-fastest performance in our database. Only a few others in recent memory have gone faster, including national record holder Sydney McLaughlin, a graduate of Union Catholic (NJ) High who posted a top time of 38.90 last season. Only three girls have broken 40 seconds.
A year ago, Norco (CA) High's Shae Anderson scored a time of 40.31, while current Miami Northwestern (FL) High sophomore Markalah Hart posted an effort of 40.28 seconds at the state championships in Florida.
Russell even had an impressive performance behind her. Western Branch (VA) High's Adriana Shockley, who like Rusell is eying a birth on the Team USA junior team this summer in Finland in the 400mH, was second overall in a US No. 18 effort of 42.88 seconds. Currently, 17 girls are loaded nationally with a time within 42.0-42.99.
Russell was on a completely different wavelength, though. According to our database, that time would also be a Maryland state record.
