4:13 is the one-mile record for the Mobile Challenge of Champions. The record set in 2021 can again be broken and this time by Mac Conwell on his home track. The St. Paul's junior currently leads the state of Alabama in the 3200m and 800m but has yet to run a 1600m this season. Conwell has taken each race out fast this season and this weekend should be no different.
Makeriah Harris Leads the Field in 100H
Scotlandville sophomore Makeria Harris leads the state of Louisianna in the 100H (US#6) and 300H (US#2). Her times this season are strong contenders towards breaking both hurdle records. Can she do it? Weather will play a HUGE factor this weekend with possible winds hanging around after morning storms might hamper and record attempt.
Morgan Davis set to compete in 200m and Long Jump
Morgan Davis is scheduled to compete in the 200m (AL#1) and Long Jump (AL#1). The Saraland junior leads the field among long jumpers and is the returning 6A State champion in the event.

The state of Alabama is familiar with Bayside senior hurdler (and University of Alabama comit) Patrick Daves. Daves currently is ranked AL#1 in the 300H and AL#2 in the 110H and is the top seeded individual in the 110H on Saturday. He should face stiff competition from LA#1 110H and LA#1 300H John Curtis High School junior Justin Horne. Hornes is the top seed in the 300H. These two going head to head should be one of the better matchups on Saturday is weather permits.
