West Gadsden High School track standout Brandon Thomas became the school’s first state champion by winning the 400-meter in the Class A state meet in Winter Garden May 1.
Thomas gained a state berth by winning both the district and region in the event.
“I felt a little nervous before I got to the track,” he said. “But then I relaxed and felt I would win.”
Thomas started in lane three in the staggered event and by the last turn had caught up. He then sped on to a time of 49.5, which was the top time in the two-heat event.
