Stark claimed second place in the 60m hurdles championship final in a record setting time of 8.05 (officially 8.047). This lowers her previous state best time of 8.12 which she achieved at February's UK High School Invitational. Stark, along with race winner Tia Jones of Woodstock, GA, narrowly missed the all-time US record of 8.02 which belongs to Tonea Marshall of Texas from New Balance Nationals Indoor in 2016. Jones clocked a time of 8.05 (officially 8.044) to secure first place in Sunday's event.
