Athlete of the Year

Bryce Robinson, Edmond Memorial

Class: Senior

Events: 100 and 200 meters

The story: A virtual newcomer to the sport last winter, Robinson excelled from the moment he touched the track. He concluded the year with four gold medals as part of Edmond Memorial's team championship at the 6A state meet. Individually, he won the 100 meters (10.47) and 200 meters in a state meet-record time of 21.02, along with two relay victories.

Isaiah Duke, Edmond Memorial

Class: Senior

Event: 400 meters

The story: He had to fight off a late-season injury to win the 400 in 48.46 at state, but he couldn't compete in the long jump, where he had pushed 24 feet during the regular season. He has signed with Baylor.

Hunter Swink, Bishop McGuinness

Class: Senior

Event: 800 meters

The story: Swink pulled off a narrow 0.05-second victory in the 800 at state with a time of 1:56.57 to conclude a strong season in the middle-distance event.

Simon Greiner, Edmond Memorial

Class: Senior

Event: 1,600 meters

The story: Another piece of the Bulldogs' dominant running contingent, Greiner was an individual state champion in the 800 (1:52.07) and the 1,600 (4:21.20), along with a relay victory.
