Kennedale boys who were part of first state track and field title
Kennedale won its first boys state track and field title Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium by winning all three events in which it competed. Two of those events were the 4×100 and 4×200 relays, and the UIL results didn't have all the correct runners in those events.
The correct athletes:
4×100 Juwan Washington Taylor Thibeau Donny Darville Leon Powell
4×200 Donny Darville Malik Burgess Juwan Washington Leon Powell
Each of the relays were worth 20 points and Powell won the 200 meters (10 points), giving Kennedale 50 for the meet. Decatur and Gilmer were second with 32.
Congrats to Kennedale on its great performance. The Kennedale girls also earned a team medal, finishing third.
