0213 Coach Hind Trophy
Hoover High swept the boys and girls state championships in Class 7A at the AHSAA State Track and Field Championships concluded Saturday at Gulf Shores.
Coach Devon Hind's teams claimed both Class 7A crowns with the boys edging Auburn 131.33 to 121.50 and the girls scoring 166.75 points with Mountain Brook second with 69.75.
The Bucs have now won boys titles in six of the seven seasons and the girls have won four championships in a row. All previous titles were in Class 6A.
Among the standouts for Hoover was Brittley Humphrey, who smashed the overall AHSAA girls’ state record in the 100-meter hurdles with a 13.74-second winning time in the Class 7A finals Saturday. She set the 6A record and overall mark last year with a 14.00 time to win the Class 6A 100-meter hurdles event.
Teammate Caitlyn Little also broke Humphrey’s 2014 record with a 13.97 time to finish second in Saturday’s 7A finals. Little also ran the 100-meter dash finals in 11.97 to win that event and clocked 24.85 to win the Class 7A 200-meter dash.
