State Open title for UConn commit Keyion Dixon
Dixon won the 300 intermediate hurdles at today's State Open Outdoor Track and Field Championships.
Dixon's winning time was 38.38 seconds as he held off Danbury's Jonathan Bartley. I went back through the State Open results dating back to 1997 and couldn't find a faster time. There were no results posted in 1996. The State Open record of 37.63 was set by Aaron Haynes out of Wilbur Cross in 1994.
Fellow UConn signee Tyler Coyle came into the meet with a seeded time of 10.78 in the 100 meters and he advanced to the finals with a time of 10.79 before finishing third in the event. He also was fifth in the 200 and ran on the third-place 4x100 relay team as Windsor finished second in the team standings behind only State Open champion Wethersfield.
