Casey Egan was at the Divisional Track meet in San Manuel earlier this month to congratulate San Manuel High School track star Wayne Newman. Newman is undefeated in the high hurdles this year. He has won every race he has competed in including the Willie Williams Track meet in Tucson.

At the Willie Williams meet, he competed against athletes from many of the larger schools in Tucson. Wayne broke Casey Egan’s school record in the 110-meter high hurdles with a new time of 14.12 seconds. Casey had held the record since 1976 with a time of 14.5.

Casey congratulated Wayne and told him a finer kid couldn’t have been chosen to have broken his record. Casey was also Wayne’s 5th grade teacher at B Avenue Elementary School. Casey also encouraged Wayne to go for his record in the intermediate hurdles. Wayne Newman has qualified for the state meet. He will be attending school at Lipscomb College on a partial track scholarship.
