Watch as Texas high school athlete runs fastest 100-meter dash in high school history

Houston Strake Jesuit senior Matthew Boling, who is a Georgia signee, ran a 9.98 in the 100-meter dash on Saturday during the 6A Region III meet, the fastest all-conditions 100-meter dash in high school history.

He surpassed Trayvon Bromell’s 9.99 from 2013 and is just the second sub-10 ever by a prep athlete, according to FloTrack. His previous personal record was a wind-aided 10.11 the week before at the district meet.

The UIL track and field state meet will take place May 10-11 at the Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas.
