UConn signee Herring shines at New Englands

UConn incoming freshman Tahj Herring made a spirited run at a pair of New England titles on Saturday.

Herring, a senior at Suffield Academy, finished tied for second in the 100 meters at the New England Prep School Track Association Division II championships hosted by Tabor Academy.

Herring was the No. 2 qualifier in the 100 meters with a qualifying time of 11.18 seconds and topped that with a clocking of 11.14 to finish tied for second in the finals.

Herring finished fourth in the 200 with a time of 23.22 and anchored Suffield Academy's third-place 4x100 relay team as he scored  12 1/2 of the 32 points for eighth-place Suffield.

Herring finished his career with 33 3/4 points in the New Englands.

It remains to be seen what impact UConn's incoming freshman class will have on the football field but if nothing else, the class could have one heck of a 4x100 relay team.

Herring came into Saturdays meet with a season-best clocking of 11.02 seconds, according to the most recent list of qualifiers on the CIAC site Tyler Coyle of Windsor has run as fast as 10.95 at the Middletown Invitational while Glastonbury's Keyion Dixon best listed time is 11.29 at the East Hartford Invitational while Quayvon Skanes twice ran as fast as 11.06 earlier this month leading up to the Chicago Public School meet.
