Katherine Baisley’s performance in the 100-meter hurdles was the highlight on the day when Lauralton Hall competed in the CIAC State Open track & field meet at Willow Brook Park in New Britain.
“For a first-year sophomore to finish 5th overall in the Open meet, well that is something very uncommon,” Lauralton coach Ellis Gill said of Baisley. “Katherine was seeded 14th coming into the meet. In the prelims, she ran a personal best time of 16.00 to finish 9th and qualify for the final. She ran another personal best of 15.81 to earn a medal. On the year, Katherine broke two school records and won multiple medals.”
