The senior hurdler ran the race of his career, busting both his personal record and the school record of 14.45 seconds to take the Class 1A 110-meter high hurdles.

“That’s my PR by a lot, I mean, a lot,” Larson said. “I didn’t ever dream about it since my junior year. I’ve improved a lot since my junior year.”
