Goodley breaks state record in 200m dash

Rankin sprinter wins gold and sets record at state track meet in Austin

RANKIN, Texas — Rankin senior Deshon Goodley helped his team place second in the 4x200m relay and then won a gold medal for himself. Goodley finished his state appearance by winning the 200m dash with a time of 22.00s, that would set a new state record for 1A.

"It was one of those moments I'll never forget," said Goodley's coach Garret Avalos. "I wasn't expecting him to fly out of there and be a state champion but that's the kind of athlete he is."
