Blake Lucius Wins 800 Meter State Title
It was a clean sweep for Shelby senior Blake Lucius in the 800 meters at the Division II State Track & Field Championships in Columbus.
Lucius was a key cog in the Whippets taking gold in the 4x800 meter relay along with fellow seniors Sam Logan and Sam Swanger, and junior Caleb Brown who ran a winning time of 7:45:15. Then in the individual 800 meters, Lucius also landed on the top of the podium by churning out a blistering 1:53:58 for the D2 state championship.
The Shelby boys track team would be crowned as team state champions as well with the help of Lucius’ pair of gold medal performances.
