As he neared the finish line in the 300-meter hurdle race, Connor Duncan knew he would be getting a gold medal at the state middle school track meet last Saturday.
He knew he had been fast, bursting out of the starting block and leading all the way. But it wasn't until a few seconds later that the magnitude of what the Anderson County Middle School eighth-grader had done began to sink in on the track at Dunbar High School in Lexington.
“The coaches said, 'You got it in 41 (seconds). I thought I had the state record,” Duncan said.
