After setting a national freshmen class record in the 55 meter hurdles last year with his 7.35 best as a 9th grader at the Atlantic Coast Invitational, Grassfield's Grant Holloway has maintained his progression of national greatness in matching the national sophomore class record in the 55 meter hurdles with his season opening performance at the CNU Winter Frolic last Friday.
