Jane Livingston, a PIAA champion and Conestoga Valley graduate, finished fifth in the women's 100-meter hurdles Sunday at the USATF U20 National Championships in Miramar, Florida.
Livingston, who won indoor and outdoor state titles during her senior year with the Buckskins, ran through the final in 13.57 seconds, setting a personal record. She had advanced to the final by finishing second in her preliminary heat at 13.69, getting the edge over Perkiomen Valley's Christina Warren (13.78) for the eighth and final spot in the championship race.
Greater Atlanta Christian's Jasmine Jones won the title (13.19) less a week after winning the 100 hurdles at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor meet. Kentucky's Masai Russell finished second (13.42). The top two finishers qualified for the Pan-American Championships scheduled for July 18-21.
Livingston, who graduated from Conestoga Valley in May, followed up on a spring season that saw her win Lancaster-Lebanon League, District Three and PIAA titles in the 100 hurdles and 300 hurdles. She's set to continue her career at Villanova University in the fall.
