McClure Outstanding In State Heptathlon Meet

McClure Outstanding In State Heptathlon Meet 1Montgomery Catholic senior Brianna McClure placed 13th overall out of some 50 participants in the AHSAA state heptathlon championships held at Birmingham’s Hoover High School.

McClure posted personal records in three of the seven events — 100-meter hurdles, high jump and 800 meters — scoring more than 4,000 points in the meet.

The meet included all six AHSAA classifications. She placed higher than any Class 4A girl, and only one other girl in an equal or lower classification finished ahead of her.

It was her first time competing in the heptathlon after two outstanding track seasons in which she qualified for the state meet in the maximum four events.

McClure, a Jimmy Hitchcock Memorial Award nominee and a Knights of the Round Table nominee, will continue her athletic career at Huntingdon College where she will run cross country.
