2011 Long Beach State Hall of Fame Nominee: Le'Gretta Hinds
The third of ten introductions to those members who are scheduled to be inducted into the Long Beach State Hall of Fame.
Sept. 28, 2011
Long Beach, Calif. - In the third of an ongoing series honoring the 2011 Long Beach State Hall of Fame nominees, we take a look at women's track and field athlete Le'Gretta Hinds.
Simply put, Le'Gretta Hinds was the best female hurdler in Long Beach State history.
Running for the 49ers from 1992 to 1996, Hinds was a three-time Big West Champion in the 400 hurdles, her signature event, and also medaled three times in the 100M hurdles. Reaching the National Championship in both events three times, Hinds was a two-time All-American in the 400M hurdles, posting a time of 57.58 in 1995 as a senior.
That mark was just .05 hundredths of a second behind her personal best of 57.53, which still stands as the Long Beach State record. Her time of 13.49 in the 100M hurdles is also a Long Beach State record, and Hinds remains one of just four 49ers to ever record a time under 60 seconds in the 400M hurdles.
The 2011 Long Beach State Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 6 p.m. at the Hilton Long Beach Hotel & Executive Meeting Center. Tickets are available online here.
