Jeshua Anderson's national high school record goes down...

As paulmerca.blogspot.com prepares to head to Eugene for Sunday's Nike Prefontaine Classic at Hayward Field comes word from the California state meet that Washington State sophomore Jeshua Anderson's national high school record of 35.28 in the 300 meter intermediate hurdles set while attending Taft HS in Woodland Hills, California went down, as Reggie Wyatt eclipsed the mark in the heats Friday night.

Wyatt, from La Sierra High School, ran 35.02 to beat Anderson's 2007 mark by .26 seconds.

The next question is whether or not Wyatt will be the first to go under 35 seconds in this event.

Courtesy of media partner runnerspace.com is an interview with Wyatt, who will be an incoming freshman at USC this coming fall:



Below is video of Anderson's former national record set two years ago:



Needless to say, it will be fun to watch Wyatt and Anderson go at it in 2010 at the Pac-10, and NCAA championships!
