Agoura’s Tara Davis was already one of the nation’s most versatile athletes entering this season and she proved it with a senior year to remember that stamped her among the all-time greats.
In April, the Georgia-bound Davis set the California state record in the 100 meter hurdles (13.01 seconds) at the Arcadia Invitational.
Later that month, she broke Marion Jones’ Ventury County finals meet record in the long jump (20-7 1/2) by going 21 feet, 8 3/4 inches.
In May, she ran the second fastest 100 hurdles time under all conditions in U.S. prep history with a wind-aided 12.89 seconds at the CIF Southern Section Division 2 prelims.
Then, her grand finale came at the CIF State Meet when she repeated as state champion in the 100 hurdles with a wind-aided time of 12.83 seconds, the fastest time under all conditions in U.S. prep history.
