Weleetka’s TeAndre Lucas was just a few steps away from becoming the state champion in the Class A 100-meter dash and possibly setting the state meet record when he pulled up and grabbed his hamstring.
Lucas collapsed on the track and stayed there for several seconds, writhing in pain, before getting up and limping over the finish line. His time was 58.02. Lucas had the fastest qualifying time in Friday’s preliminary at 11.37.
Ramy Anderson of Texhoma won Saturday’s finals with a time of 11.11.
REESE BECOMES THREE-TIME CHAMPION
Baylor Reese of Fairview won the discus for the third consecutive year and broke her own state meet record from a year ago with a toss of 140-7. Her previous state meet was 138-3.
THE ASKA REIN CONTINUES AT COYLE
Sophomore Tyra Aska of Coyle won three golds and one silver Saturday. Aska won the 100 and anchored the winning 400 and 800 relay teams. She finished second in the 200, leading her team to a third place finish in Class A.
Her older sister, Taren, ran the second leg on both winning relay teams. Their brother, Tony, plays basketball at Redlands Community College in El Reno.
TONKAWA’S REESE FINISHES WITH 13 GOLDS
