Prep Athletes of the Year: 2012-13

What we wrote...

If the order of events at track and field meets was different, so too might have been the accomplishments of Dion Hooker .

Hooker went after the 100-meter dash and 200 at this year’s postseason meets, forgoing the 400 because of its scheduling proximity to the 200 – Hooker ’s favorite race – in the timetable of events.

Only a sophomore, Hooker won the Class 2A state title in the 200 and took sixth in the 100, becoming the first Sycamore boys track athlete to win an individual state championship since Gail Olson in 1978.
