4x800 State Champs
The 2013 Daniel Boone High School Track Season concluded Friday, May 24th at the State Championships in Murfreesboro, and was one of the most successful in school history! The boy's team sent six athletes to the State Championships in four different events, with all of them earning All-State honors with top eight finishes in each event, including one State Title.
The Boys 4 x 800 Relay Team won the State Championship in one of the most remarkable races ever. The quartet of seniors Chad Whitehead and Jordan Roth, junior Ashton Wilson and sophomore Adam Barnard overcame a dropped baton, which put them 60 meters behind everyone, and fought back to take the victory!
