Dallas Rushing (SR) Axtell ran a solo 1A State Recored and PR (1:52.24) at the UIL State Track and Field Meet. He went through at 55 and finished strong. He beat the previous record who was set in 2012 by William Roberts from Sanderson who ran 1:54.75. Dallas is at Texas A&M.
Klein Oak won the race in a very fast 40.66. Desoto was the favorite running the fastest time in the state a week earlier at the Region I Meet in Lubbock. The thing that makes this performance so special was that they placed 2nd to Longview a week earlier at Region II and they won it out of Lane 9 which is a very rare occurence in championship races. Great Job!

The University Interscholastic League State Track and Field Championships are not completely new to the TCU-bound Terry, who placed ninth in the Class 5A girls 400 meters last year, but competing in three events is, and her agenda is well-planned out. Along with individual and relay honors, the Clear Springs girls should be in the running for the 5A state team title. Terry is undefeated in the track postseason going gold in the 200 meters (24.86), 400 (56.52) and 800 (2:24.70) at the District 24-5A Meet; in the 400 (56.04) and 800 (2:21.46) in the area round; and most recently in the 400 (53.93) and 800 (2:12.92) in 5A Region III last week.
