Ja’Tavia Callier broke the two-year-old Okinawa district record in track and field’s 100-meter hurdles, clocking 15.27 seconds at Chatan’s American Village Stadium during Saturday’s Okinawa district finals.

She broke her own personal record of 15.39 set on March 24, and the district mark of 15.87 set two years ago by Kadena’s Tiarrah Edwards. District records can only be broken in district finals by Okinawa league rules.

“I felt good,” Callier said. “I stumbled out of the blocks, so I had to work harder to get back into a rhythm.”

Callier also won the high jump and was part of a relay-winning foursome, and Elizabeth Joy won the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 as the Dragons captured the girls district title.
