Caleb Boger Gets 100m Victory AT AAU Junior Olympic Games

Caleb Boger of Mesquite interviews after the 100m

Mesquite sophomore CALEB BOGER has had one heck of a 2017 track season. Beginning with the onset of the season, Boger ran personal best in both the 100m and 200m in the first outdoor meet of the season. From there things seemed to get better and better. As the weather started to heat up, so did Boger. By the end of the season, Boger had landed himself at the UIL 6A State meet for the 200m.

During the club season, Boger once again hit a hot streak, this time riding the all of the way to the USATF and AAU Junior Olympic finals. At the AAU Junior Olympic Games, Boger methodically worked himself through the qualifying rounds.

Saturday was the day Boger had been working for all summer long. In the finals, Boger struck gold in the 100m. Boger had a race plan and he executed it, "I wanted to get out fast and finish strong." His strong finish earned him the 15-16 year old boys 100m title with a 10.79. He would then go on to finish second in the 200m with a 21.26. 

Next season, remember the name Caleb Boger when track season comes along. Boger will be one of the top returning sprinters in the 2018 UIL track season.
