Dillon Baker of Shorecrest wins State 3A championship in 110-meter hurdles

Saturday, May 28, 2011

Shorecrest senior Dillon Baker won the State 3A championship in the 110-meter hurdles Friday at the State track and field championships at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

Baker won with a time of 15.14 seconds, after having the top qualifying time of 15.46 seconds Thursday.

Our news partner The Seattle Times called Baker a novice at the hurdles and had this quote from Baker:
"It feels pretty good because I didn't start hurdling until midway through last season,"
The Times also said this:
“At 6 feet 6 and nearly 200 pounds, Dillon Baker had the athletic frame to excel in the hurdles. He just didn't have the technique.

“Enter YouTube.

"’I did a lot of work in the offseason working on my form just by myself and watching YouTube videos,’ Baker said. ‘So that helped me. That came back to this season.’"
