McAllen Memorial’s Skaugen is back healthier, stronger for regional hurdles

McALLEN — This race weekend feels like a long time coming for McAllen Memorial junior Sean Skaugen.

During practice at Boxer Hernandez Stadium, Skaugen is an imposing figure. He’s almost reached 6-foot-3, and his upper-body strength is visible. According to Skaugen, that’s why his season has been so successful. Being healthy in the postseason helps, too.

He’ll line up at the Region IV-6A meet today and Saturday at San Antonio’s Alamo Stadium hoping to leave as a state qualifier.
