Brenen Thompson and Darieus Thompson Sprint To UIL 3A Title


Boys 100m

Brenen Thompson a Senior from Spearman shot out of the gate like a rocket in the white with 50 meters in and had a commanding lead.

No time was wasted as he crossed the line for the gold medal with a time of 10.24, Jeremiah Durham  a Sophomore from Wichita Falls City View finished in 2nd place with a time of 10.60, while Sean Cooksey a Junior from Breckenridge came in 3rd place with a time of 10.68.

Boys 400m

With a split of just under 25 seconds, the 3A Boys were flying around the curves in what was a competitive race. Darieus Dixon of McGregor led the way at the 200 meter mark.

The junior kept his stride going all the way through, crossing the finish line with a winning time of 48.31. Senior Bryan Thomas of Palacios held onto the second spot with a strong finish.

Thomas crossed with a time of 48.95 for the silver medal. Despite being the lone underclassmen, Daniel Sianez stepped up to the challenge to secure the final podium spot. The Muleshoe sophomore crossed with a time of 49.47. The top eight finishers ran a time of 50 seconds or below.

Boys 200m

After an unquestionable 100m win, Brenen Thompson from Spearman had to be feeling in a golden mood. Now, all that was left to do was defend his 2021 200m championship and he'd be leaving Austin with double gold medals before returning for UT football later in the summer.

He entered with a 21.00 regional time, which was faster than the 21.04 UIL 3A state record, so the crowd was on record racing watch from Spearman.

The footballer with track speed used that determination for motivation based on his turn running. The race was basically in hand like many of Thompson's catches at the wide receiver position.

Freshman Tim Grice from Rockdale gave a valiant effort with his running on the homestretch. He was trying to catch Thompson all of the way down the homestretch. He would finish runner-up to Thompson (20.73) with his 21.26 time. Eli Potts (Brock) was third in 21.61.
