Winfield High School senior Trey Cunningham broke his own National High School 60-meter hurdles record set earlier this year at the New Balance Nationals indoor track meet held the New Balance Track and Field Center in New York City March 12.
Cunningham won the 60-meter hurdles in 7.40 seconds at the national meet, setting a new high school record for the third time this year to win the national title. The time also set the World Junior record – which includes competitors under the age of 20.
His 55-meter time was 6.871 seconds, which is also a new National High School record.
The National Federation of High School Associations (NFHS) currently only lists outdoor track & field records in its NFHS High School Record Book. The indoor records are monitored by Track & Field News, which has published since 1948.
Woodlawn High School senior Jayla Kirkland also won the national championship race in the 60-meter dash at the New Balance Nationals. She ran the sprint in 7.27 seconds to win the finals. The meet record for that event is 7.26 seconds. She also narrowly missed the national high school record (7.19) set by Ashley Owens of Liberty High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She set the record in Atlanta in 1997.
Her time was best in the nation this season and her 55-meter time in the race was 6.758 seconds, just shy of the national record (6.68) set by Aleisha Latimer of Palmer, Coloraldo, and Angela Williams of Chino, Cal., in 1996 and 1998, respectively.
Homewood’s Jasmine Griffin was 9th in the semifinals with a 7.50 time. Kirkland’s 200-meter qualifying time of 23.99 seconds was sixth overall and placed her in the finals head. She did not compete in the finals, however.
Cunningham, who like Kirkland, signed a track scholarship with Florida State University, ran 7.49 in January at the Last Chance Invitational Meet at the Birmingham CrossPlex to set a new high school national record. He set the AHSAA state indoor meet record the next week with a 7.54 time in the 4A-5A finals. He also set a state indoor meet record in the 60-meter dash (6.79) and won the 4A-5A long jump and 400-meter dash. He only competed in the 60-meter hurdles at the New Balance meet,
He clocked 7.45 seconds in the New Balance preliminaries to break his record set in January, before sprinting away from the field in Sunday’s final. His time in the 55-meter distance in the prelims was 6.916. He improved that time to 6.871 in the finals.
Several other AHSAA student-athletes competed in the New Balance Indoor Nationals.
Top efforts included:
Noah Igbinoghene, Hewitt-Trussville: The all-state wide receiver and Auburn football signee finished third in the triple jump (49 feet, 4½ inches) and fourth in the long jump (23-03). He also clocked 7.03 seconds in the 60-meter dash and finished 30th overall.
JuVaughn Blake, Columbia: The 2017 AHSAA indoor state meet Class 6A state high jump champion placed second in the high jump at the New Balance Nationals clearing 7 feet, ¼ inches. He and two other competitors each cleared the same distance but Blake finished second overall based on total misses.

BIRMINGHAM – Coach Jim Tate’s St. Paul’s Episcopal Lady Saints captured the school’s 24th at the AHSAA ‘s 48th State Indoor Track Championships Saturday at the Birmingham CrossPlex. Hoover’s boys also snapped Auburn’s two-year dominance in Class 7A as the Bucs rolled to their seventh indoor title overall.
Coach Devin Hind’s Bucs accumulated 111 points en route to the Class 7A boys’ championship. Hewitt-Trussville, coached by David Dobbs, was second with 58 points. McGill-Toolen Catholic and Mountain Brook tied for third with 41.5 points each. The Lady Bucs also won the girls’ championship with a 123-point effort. Mountain Brook was runner-up with 78.5.

The Saints have now won eight straight girls’ indoor state titles. Scottsboro won the Class 4A/5A boys’ championship with 103 points. Winfield, thanks in part to a 40-point effort by senior Trey Cunningham, was second with 73. Madison Academy was third with 39.
Coach Charles Tiller’s American Christian Patriots won the Class 1A/3A boys’ and girls’ state championships. The boys had 87 points, Holly Pond was second with 62 and Montgomery Academy finished third with 51. ACA’s girls amassed 121 points while runner-up Westminster of Oak Mountain was second 86, and Whitesburg Christian finished third with 77.
In the individual competition, Winfield’s Trey Cunningham set a new AHSAA indoor state meet overall and Class 4A/5A record in the 60-meter hurdles with a winning time of 7.54 seconds. That mark eclipsed the record he set in the prelims (7.58) and also topped former Hoover sprinter Marlon Humphrey’s previous state mark of 7.80 set in 2013. West Point’s Hunter Appling finished second in the 4A/5A finals with an 8.23 time. That also surpassed the previous 4A/5A mark set by Lezyon Lagard (8.30) of Central-Tuscaloosa in 2013. Appling broke that mark in the prelims as well clocking 8.27.
Cunningham, who also won the Class 4A/5A long jump Saturday to finish with 40 points in the meet, clocked 6.79 seconds to set the AHSAA all-time, all-class indoor state meet record in the Class 4A/5A 60-meter dash finals. The time was just 1/100ths of a second off his best time of the year (6.79) that he ran in the Last Chance Classic at the CrossPlex last weekend. The winning time also gave him a new 4A/5A record – closing his AHSAA indoor career with state meet records in the 60 overall, in 4A/5A and in 1A/3A. He also won the long jump Saturday with a 23-foot, 1-inch leap.
Jayla Kirkland of Woodlawn also set a new overall and Class 4A/5A state meet record in the 60-meter dash Saturday with a 7.48 time. She held the mark with 7.49 in 2014 and 2015 in Class 6A. She holds the CrossPlex record as well with a 7.46 time she ran last weekend in the Last Chance Classic regular season meet.
Dan Passen of Xpress Timing, the official meet electronic timer, also set up a camera to get all runners’ 55-meter times in the two races. Cunningham’s time of 7.00 (6.998) tied the national record in that event set last year by Grant Holloway of Grassfield High School in Cheseapeake (VA) at a meet in New York City.
Cunningham’s time also surpassed the AHSAA overall state record (7.39) in the 55-meter hurdles, now discontinued. It was set by Hoover’s Chris Butler in 1998 at Priceville’s Celebration Arena. Cunningham was clocked at 6.33 seconds by the 55-meter clock in the 60 he ran Saturday. That too was faster than the AHSAA overall state mark in that discontinued event. Sidney Lanier’s Chris Chukuma established the record (6.46) in 1996. The high school national record in the 55 is 6.08 seconds, set by Marvin Bracey of Orlando-Boone High School (FL) in 2012.
Kirkland’s time at the 55-meter distance of her race was 6.95 seconds, faster than the AHSAA indoor state record (7.18) owned by Laquinta Aaron of N0rthridge in 2006.
Caitlyn Little of Hoover, who won the 60-meter hurdles, was clocked at 7.96 by the 55-meter clock. The AHSAA 55-meter dash indoor record (8.10) was set by Jihan Trone of Hewitt-Trussville in 2000. That event was discontinued after 2007.
Four runners broke the Class 7A girls’ 1,600-meter state meet record Saturday with Mountain Brook’s Anna Grace Morgan winning with a 4:59.96 time. Huntsville’s Abby Zane was second (5:04.74), Harper McGowan of Auburn (5:07.70) was third and Grace Jensen of McGill-Toolen Catholic (5:07.86) was fourth. Frances Patrick Mountain Brook set the previous record in 2016 (5:07.88).
Auburn’s Erik Ebel set a new CrossPlex record in the shot put with a winning throw of 58 feet, 11 inches in the Class 7A boys’ competition. He was still well short of the AHSAA’s oldest standing record, Frank Warren’s 63-foot, 6 ½-inch toss in the 1977 state meet for Phillips High School. Warren went on to have an outstanding football career at Auburn University and then spent 14 years in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints. The defensive tackle was also inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame. He is now deceased.

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (July 13, 2016) — Effective with the 2017 high school track and field season, a participant who assists an injured/ill competitor shall not be disqualified if an appropriate health-care professional is not available.
The NFHS Board of Directors recently approved all rules changes recommended by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) Track and Field Rules Committee at its June 13-15 meeting in Indianapolis.
Becky Oakes, NFHS director of sports and liaison to the Track and Field Rules Committee, said the committee determined that this act of sportsmanship extended to an injured/ill competitor when a health-care professional is not readily available should not result in a penalty.
“The committee wanted to recognize the importance of appropriate healthcare of an ill/injured competitor as well as recognize that at times there may be fellow competitors who may need to assist others who cannot continue,” Oakes said. “Therefore, the committee felt that disqualification shouldn’t be the result of a sportsmanship act.”
In order to be consistent with current sport trends, the committee revised Rule 5-7-3, which reinforces the concept that competitors in distance races only use a standing start and shall remain motionless for the start without their hand(s) touching the ground.
The rules committee voted to combine Rule 6 (Throwing Events) and Rule 7 (Jumping Events) into one rule titled “Field Events” to eliminate duplication of definitions and unnecessary language and the possibility of making a change in the throws and missing it in the jumps.
“The last couple of rules cycles the committee has been trying to eliminate unnecessary and repetitive language. This is the last phase of the clean-up – creating one rule that covers multiple events,” Oakes said.
For purposes of risk management, the committee revised Rules 6-2-14 and 7-2-5, which state that all warm-ups in a field event may not take place until the venue is declared open and required supervision is in place.
In Rule 5-6, the committee moved the Note in Rule 5-6-4 to the new Article 4. Oakes said the results of running events are based on head-to-head competition and all contestants should have the opportunity to compete in the heat earned by the competitor’s place and/or qualifying times.
The committee also approved a change to Rule 3-6-1, which now grants authority to disqualify a runner for a false start to the starter as well as the referee. Also, the starter will now give a signal at the beginning of the last lap in individual races of two laps or more (previously three).
Another change was made in Rule 3-2-4u, which states that the games committee – not the coach – should have the responsibility of providing liquids during the competition.
In Rule 3-10-7, when flags are not utilized, the head event judge utilizes the mechanics to call “fair” or “foul.”
Other changes approved by the committee include:
· The removal of the Note in 4-3-1b(5), which contradicts the rule by limiting the placement of the American flag to one piece of uniform apparel.
· Rule 4-6-5g, which states that it is an unfair act when a competitor receives physical aid from any other person during a race or trial, except as provided in Rules 4-6-5 and 9-7.
· Rule 5-1-3, which notes that, in absence of a curb, if cones are used, they should just touch the inside of the line and be placed about 5 feet apart around the curve.
· Rule 6-2-17, which clarifies how trials are recorded when a legal implement breaks during competition.
· Rule 6-5-9e, which notes that if a shot put competitor touches the top or end of the stopboard before leaving the circle, it is a foul.
· Rule 9-1-3b for cross country states that the race course should include either directional flags and/or directional sign posts.
· Rule 10-2-2, which notes that when multiple takeoff boards are used in the long jump and triple jump, the 20-meter distance shall be from the foul line farthest from the pit.
A complete listing of the track and field rules changes will be available on the NFHS website at www.nfhs.org. Click on “Activities & Sports” at the top of the home page, and select “track and field.”
According to the 2015-16 NFHS High School Athletics Participation Survey, there are 578,632 boys participating in outdoor Track and Field at 16,358 schools and 478,726 girls at 16,309 schools.
