Kellenberg Gabby Schreib clears the final hurdle in the girls’ 100 meter high hurdle race at the CHSAA league track championships on Saturday, May 21, 2016.

By Newsday’s Jordan Lauterbach:

The 400-meter hurdles are no match for Kellenberg’s Gabby Schreib. Last week, the senior broke the school record in the event. Saturday morning, she won it in the CHSAA girls track and field championships in 64.27 seconds at St. Anthony’s High School.

Last week’s record performance, a 63.11 time at the North Shore Invitational, gave the Fordham-bound senior a tremendous confidence boost entering Saturday’s opening event.
