Elizabeth Forward's Jonathan Devine showed off his hurdling talent last spring when he placed eighth at the WPIAL Class 3A championships.
Devine could be headed for an even better finish this season.
A senior, Devine has had a solid season. One of the highlights came at last Wednesday's Big South Invitational when he doubled in the hurdling events, taking home first-place finishes in both the 110- and 300-meter hurdles.
In the 110 hurdles, Devine raced to a time of 15.48. He edged Belle Vernon's Hunter Martin, the runner-up with a mark of 15.68. Devine had a bit more breathing room in the 300 hurdles. He sprinted to a time of 41.68, which was more than a second faster than runner-up John Hall of McGuffey, who finished in 41.68.
