AUSTIN – There weren’t many competitors from District 14-4A at the State UIL Track and Field Meet last weekend, but the ones that were there certainly made a name for themselves.
Mount Pleasant senior K.D. Cannon, who has committed to play football for Baylor, proved to be the fastest man in the state Friday night, winning the Class 4A title in the 100-meter dash at 10.32 seconds. It was also the fastest time in any classification.
But, the real buzz in Class 4A was Texas High’s Kevin Harris, who is also committed to run track at Baylor. Harris not only won the 200-meter dash in a time of 20.92 seconds, but anchored both the 4x100 and 4x200 relays to victories. In the sprint relay, Harris received the baton in fourth place, but outran the competition to the finish line to win in 40.41 seconds.
In the 4x200 relay, Harris was in second place at the final exchange, but passed the Fort Bend Marshall runner on the homestretch as the Tigers won the race in a meet class record of 1:24.26.
Passing the Marshall runner was doubly significant because it propelled the Tigers to the team title. Texas High won the state championship with 50 points, while Fort Bend Marshall was second with 48 points.
