BOYS TRACK: Okemos’ Outlaw rebounds to have stellar senior campaign
BY DAN STICKRADT
EAST KENTWOOD — Napoleon Outlaw made the most of his final prep track and field season.
The Okemos senior sprinter did not qualify in any event as a junior for the Division 1 state finals. He more than made up for it as a senior.
Outlaw bowed out by competing in four events at the D-1 state finals June 3 at East Kentwood High School. Outlaw clocked 10.82 in the 100 meters to finish second behind All-American Khance Meyers of East Kentwood.
He also claimed third in the 200 meters (21.82 in the prelims and 21.99 in the finals), ran a leg on the Chieftains’ third-place 800-meter relay unit (1:27.85) and anchored the school’s 1,600 relay that finished 13th.
As a sophomore, Outlaw was seventh at state in the 200 meters and ran on two state-placing relays — fourth on the 1,600 relay (3:24.32) and fifth on the 800 relay (1:28.80).
