Grace Stark Dominates With Big Sprint Double At UK High School Indoor Invitational

Most impressive short distance girls sprinter in the country? Arria Minor and Tamari Davis probably should look over their shoulder. 

How about White Lake Lakeland (MI) High junior Grace Stark? In quite possibly the most competitive 60 meter hurdles field this indoor season thus far, Stark raced to a new US No. 1 mark of 8.12 seconds on Saturday at the UK High School Indoor Invitational to knock off former national-leader Tia Jones and US No. 1 55mH leader Masai Russell

She wasn't done, though. 

She added another personal best in the 60m, going a US No. 5 mark of 7.41 seconds at the distance to take another win. She knocked off 0.06 seconds from her top time a week ago at the SPIRE Scholastic Showcase. 

As Stark has shown all season, she's been money when on the line against premier competition. Check out both races of the junior.
