The senior led the No. 4 Lions to a second-place finish — one point behind No. 2 Milford Mill and three points ahead of No. 1 McDonogh — at the Pikesville Track Classic on Saturday. London established a meet record in the 100 hurdles with a time of 14.34 seconds, won the 300 hurdles (44.53) by more than two seconds and also ran on Howard's winning 400 relay team. Her times in both individual events are the best in the state so far this spring. Next week, London is scheduled to run in the 400 hurdles at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia. She has a 3.5 GPA and will run track at Virginia Tech next year.
