Matthew Boling clocked a 10.13 run during the 100-meter dash.
Matthew Boling set a national high-school record when he ran a 100-meter race in 10.13 seconds during the Texas Class 6A state championships event on Saturday.
Boling, a senior sprinter who attends Strake Jesuit, had already made headlines when he legged out a 9.98 run during the regionals. The performance, however, was not considered a national record because it was wind-aided.
But Boling’s run on Saturday was deemed legal, if not astounding.
Boling’s previous wind-legal personal best was 10.22 for the 100-meter dash. He’s also logged a 20.58-second finish in the 200-meter dash. Additionally, he’s competed in the long jump, 4×100 and 4×400-meter relays.
Boling will run at the University of Georgia next year.
