Last year, the 60 meter hurdles was an event that was dominated by the upperclassmen. Upper Darby's Mason Weh claimed an elusive state title, while we saw a number of others like Milton Hershey's Nasir Salahudin, Kiski Area's Jace Roundtree, Mount Lebanon's Patrick Kimball, and Archbishop Ryan's Monte Guess developed into the top names in the state.

But when we got around to outdoors, a few young stars started to emerge even more. St. Joseph's Prep's Miles Green showed his strength in the 300 hurdles and 400 hurdles and North Allegheny's Ayden Owens won a state title in the 300 hurdles. Germantown Academy's multi-event specialist Kyle Garland also improved in the hurdles. Those three---all in their junior seasons---look to be the strongest 60 meter hurdle returnees this winter.

Green is the lone returnee from the state final last season. Green took eighth in that final, while also competing in the open 400. He has a PR of 8.28 and he's the top threat this season.

Garland ran a 8.34 at the state meet, but just missed out on the finals. He will definitely be one to watch in the hurdles, among a handful of other events (the high jump is probably his best).

Owens really shined outdoors last spring and he's probably more suited for the longer hurdles, but Owens should still be a serious threat. He has a PR of 8.37 in the 60 hurdles and will be in the mix for a state title. At indoor states last year in the prelims, Owens hit a few hurdles and struggled across the line. He'll be looking for some redemption in this event this time around.

Plenty of other hurdlers will be looking to make that jump to elite status this indoor season. Conestoga Valley's Aanyah Bermudez, a senior, is one of them. Bermudez ran 8.39 last season, but missed out on the finals at states. He'll be hungry for a shot this season.

Other state qualifers from last year returninf this season include: Alex Dimon (Pennridge), James Jackson (Chester), Sam Lindner (Haverford School), and Bobby Pressley (Susquehanna Township). Dimon will be one to watch; he was a semifinalist in the 110 hurdles this past spring.

Watch the final from the boys' 60-meter hurdles at last year's PTFCA Indoor State Championships and check out the top 162 returners in the event below:
