    HS Record in the 100M Set (Not KY)

    A Texas sprinter set the new High School record by running a sub-10 second 100M, in 9.98 seconds. This kid is flying.



    Carl Lewis at one point had the WR at 10.00 flat set in Dallas Texas.

    I see Matthew goes by the nickname "White Lightning" and the full school name is Strake Jesuit College Prep in Houston.

    In addition to 9.98 he just ran, he ran a 10.22 recently too.

    I have not been to a ton of track meets but a few and watched a few on TV. Why are they running that direction? Always seems to me that they go the other way. Wind?

    Interesting style. Looks like he is almost leaning slightly backwards and he still posted that time. Great stride. You can see where he pulled away that his stride just suddenly started eating up turf.

    Did you see what he did in a 4x400 this past month? About 3/4 through the video, Matt starts his leg of the relay. The amount of ground he gained to win the even for his team is simply incredible.
