“I feel that's what I'm best at,” she said. “When I started doing it, I just kind of got it. It's hard, and I work at it, but I haven't fallen yet.”
Plainview's C.J. Hornback finished second ahead of Pinkerton at the Class 3A state meet, and she's back this year as well, holding the best time of the season in the 100 hurdles at 15.21 seconds.
Pinkerton's best time is 16.10, and her sights are set on lowering it in time for regionals and state.
“I want to win state in the 100 hurdles,” she said. “I'm trying to get my time better. It would mean everything to win it. It would be so amazing to stand up there and know that I won state.”
