Diggs ran a time of 38.32 to win the 300 meters at the Ocean Breeze Freedom Games. That time is a current US No. 2 clocking, a current PA No. 1, and a PA No. 2 all-time. Only Dasia Pressley (38.20 in 2016) has run faster over the distance.
Saturday was another chapter in Diggs' winning-filled senior season. She remains undefeated this indoor campaign, scoring wins at Bishop Loughlin, the Burdette Classic, and Ocean Breeze Holiday Festival in a variety of events before the Freedom Games.

The University of Florida signee Diggs left little doubt in the 300 final on Saturday. Her 38.32 was almost two seconds faster than second place. At the Bishop Loughlin Games in December, Diggs ran 38.61 to win, so Saturday was a nice improvement for her.
Aaliyah Pyatt of Massaponax (VA) ran the US No. 1 time in the event on the same day, a 38.29 at the Bulldog Invitational at Liberty University in Virginia.
The season is young, but Diggs is already showing she's ready for her best season yet on the track. She's scored PRs in the 55 meters and the 300 meters. Certainly it's not the last we've seen of Diggs in 2020.
