Posted Tuesday, June 07, 2011 by George Schroeder
Mike Benson ran a career best time of :14.95 in the finals of the 110HH at the 2011 Individual Championships & State Qualifier on June 4th at Port Jefferson High School. Earning All-County status, Mike ran a :15.44 to take the 6th qualifiing spot. In a final that featured arguably the best hurdler in New York State Amityville's Sancho Barrett, as well as Huntington's perrenial sophomore Tyriek Johnson and Bellport's Sheldon Derenoncourt, Mike would face his toughest field ever.

Out of the blocks well and over the first of ten hurdles cleanly, Mike began to assert himself and pressed for 2nd place. In the end, Barrett ran a state leading time of :13.98, while Johnson edged Benson by :00.01 od second!!! Look out next year boys!!!
