Bullis School's Myla Greene Makes First U.S. Team In 100mH

EUGENE -- Myla Greene made sure to say one thing. 

"This wasn't my last race." 

And that sure feels like a sign of more things to come after Greene, a recent graduate of Bullis School (MD), ran a personal record 13.10 seconds in the women's 100mH final on Friday at the USATF U20 Championships at Hayward Field. 

The performance granted Greene a second-place finish in the final, a new U.S. No. 1 time to end the season and booked her ticket to the Pan American U20 Championships in Puerto Rico in August. 

Oh yeah, and one more thing: It was the ninth-best performance in U.S. history for the distance. 

She said it was all about execution. 

"In prelims I noticed I had to have a better start, because I didn't have a good start. So in finals I wanted to execute that."

Another important variable? 

"And also keep attacking each hurdle like I would do any other race," she added. "That's what I did." 

It was a reassuring moment for Greene, considering she had missed a World qualifier by two placements a year ago. 

A top recruit, Greene is headed for the University of Tennessee in the fall. But not before her last race.
