In 2018, these three young men were at the top of the mountain in regards to triple-threat sprinters in AZ.
While it's incredible enough to be a standout in one event in track and field, we have some athletes who are amazing at multiple events. For the next few weeks, we will look at these top athletes who are/were "triple threats" in individual events over the past 10 seasons. Today, we start with boy sprinters.
100 M, 200 M, & 400 M BOYS
We looked at the top-100 Arizona boy athletes in the 100, 200, and 400 since 2011. From there we saw which of these athletes had competed in all three events and hence, we have our list of 36 Arizona boys of the past and present who are triple-threat AZ sprinting studs.
In the 100 meters, there was the fastest time of 10.34 seconds and the slowest time of 10.84 seconds, with an average 100-meter clocking of 10.72 for this group.
In the 200 meters, the fastest time for this group was at 20.74 seconds and the slowest time of 23.19 seconds, with an average 200-meter sprint of 21.82
