Video of Elysia Hodges’ close race in 300 hurdles at Division 3 finals

San Marcos senior Elysia Hodges was involved in one the closest races of the day at the CIF Southern Section Divisional track and field finals last Saturday.

Hodges, the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Track Athlete of the Year, was edged at the finish in the Division 3 girls 300 hurdles race by San Marino’s Omhunique Browne. Hodges was leading Brown until the last hurdle. She was timed in 43.58 while Browne crossed the finish in 43.56.

Hodges will get a rematch on Friday night at the CIF Masters Meet at Cerritos College.
