Justin Veteto’s signing to compete for the Purdue University men’s track and field program starting next winter brings with it a promise: One of Indiana’s premier hurdlers is going to be watched that much closer this spring.

The Center Grove senior, a 6-foot-4, 160-pound rail who glides effortlessly over the hurdles, is coming off a season in which he placed second at the IHSAA Boys Track and Field State Finals in the 110 high hurdles and sixth in the 300 lows.

“I thought it was a great season because my teammates needed me in the relays,” said Veteto, who notched three firsts and a second at last year’s Connersville Regional in unpleasantly cold and windy weather conditions.
