It’s good to be fresh. Jazmine Fray knows that firsthand.
While the Kellenberg senior usually has to run the 600 meters after exerting herself in a previous event (typically the 1,000 meters), she had the luxury of leading off her day with it Sunday at the CHSAA Intersectional Championships.
Fray won the event in 1 minute, 33.44 seconds at The Armory in Manhattan. That broke the Kellenberg record of 1:35.46 set by Kim Mackay in 2010, coach Marty Brown said.
It was Fray’s first time running the event fresh at the famous Washington Heights venue, she said.
“I felt really confident [going into] the race,” Fray said. “I got out really well. I wanted to hit the 60-second mark on the 400-meter lap. I did exactly that. After that, I sprinted and gave it all I had.”
That was good enough to earn her Track Athlete of the Meet honors.
