“The 200 meters might be Casey’s best race,” Landon said. “He has learned how to run the 400 and he is also great in the 100 meters. He is exceptionally fast in the sprints.”

Coach Landon was a state qualifier in the sprints, so Casey has learned a considerable amount from him in his years with the coach.

Coach Landon is excited about what is ahead with the sectional and state meets close on the horizon. He is hoping to see his talented sprinter advance to the state championships in Charleston.

Again, congrats to Borkowski on his selection as a Sparklight Male Athlete of the Month.
