Winterton is 3x champion

Back-to-back-to-back 300 meter hurdle championships


Janelle Winterton completed the perfect trifecta Saturday in Ardmore winning State in the 300 meter hurdles for the third year in a row.

The Lady Bulldog speedster covered the 300 meters in 44.82.

The Lexington senior also won the State 3A title in the long jump with a 17’ 2 3/4” leap.

Winterton won as a sophomore in 46.35 when she was state runner up in the long jump with a 16’9” effort.

As a junior, she won the hurdles in 45.46, shaving off time every year.

“I didn’t even know if she was going to run three weeks ago,” head coach Derek Clark said. “She’s been battling injury all year.

“I’m so proud of her grit and fight. She’s a special kind of athlete,” Clark said.
