Talitha Diggs tuned up for next week's AAU Junior Olympic Games with a time trial at Easton Area High School.
The recent Saucon Valley graduate, who leaves for the University of Florida in less than a month, missed out on her senior season due to the coronavirus, but still wanted to post some quick times and get a good tune-up in ahead of next week's meet in Florida.
Diggs ran the 100 and the 200 meters on Thursday, the same events she will contest at AAU. With Tumey Timing present, the meet was F.A.T., though Diggs was running solo. First came the 200, where Diggs fired off a time of 24.40 amid some fairly intense crosswinds. About an hour later, Diggs ran the 100 meters, where she clocked an 11.93.
Watch the videos from those races below, and check out an interview with Diggs where she reflects on missing her senior season and looks ahead to AAU JOs.
