Jordan Hamb Wins Prestigious Texas Relays 100HH Crown

WATCH: Jordan takes down the competition in the Division 1 100HH Championship race




Austin, TX-

The once prized-coveted athlete, Jordan Hamb, was chased by many Chicago public high school coaches before landing at South Shore International Prep. The move for the super sophomore has been nothing short of spectacular. She has done as expected, is individually on track, and has put her school back on the relevant landscape. 

Hamb and The Tars took another step forward in supplanting themselves as a viable force on the state championship scene in May. This past weekend, they took their talents to the venerable Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays to duel against some of the elite talent in the country. 

During the three-day meet, Hamb competed in the 4x100 relay, 4x200, the triple jump, and the 100-meter hurdles.

Hamb took 11th place in the triple jump, leaping 37'5.25w. This is only the beginning.

In the prelims, Hamb competed in her first track race of the day, the 100HH prelims, and promptly put up an eye-popping time of 13.84. Unfortunately, it would not count as a legal time, negated by a tornado-like +5.8 wind.

She assisted her teammates in advancing to the finals in the 4x100, running 49.04. The unit would be disqualified for a lane violation in the 4x1. Previously, Hamb ran a leg on the 4x200 relay, but it did not advance to the final.

Perhaps the moment that everyone back was watching for was the hurdles final, especially after producing an immaculate performance. 

Hamb got a clean start and was first over the initial hurdle, and from there, she pulled away with the decisive victory, 14.06 (+0.4).  A legal effort that ranks 20th in the country.
