Mead junior Dominick Corley opened his outdoor season at the Howard Dolphin Invitational with an impressive time of 10.60 seconds in the 100 meters to highlight a full day of track and field at West Valley High School.
Corley’s time ranks second in the state for all classifications behind Seattle Prep’s Will Floyd, who ran 10.56.
“Felt pretty good about my running,” Corley said. “My form stayed strong and I’ve been executing what I’ve been training for the past two years.”
Corley lowered his personal-best time by .57 seconds from his sophomore year to win his opener by one-half second over Riverside’s Shaun Wilson, who ran 11.21 . Ferris’ Isaiah Newman was third in 11.31.
“I never thought I’d be running sub-11 in my life, if I’m being honest,” Corley said. “Just wanted to see what I could do for my opener and see where I’m at. Now just need to build off of that.”
Corley also anchored the Panthers’ 4x100 relay team to victory in 43.23, defeating Rogers’ 44.48 effort.
