Yared Nuguse Completes Distance Sweep At Kentucky State Championships


DuPont Manual (KY) High senior Yared Nuguse made waves early in the month when he won the Kentucky Dream mile in a US No. 4 time of 4:06.30.

But then he made sure to cap off that good exposure with a near perfect performance at the Kentucky Class AAA Track and Field Championships on Saturday, winning individual titles in the 800m, 1600m and 3200m -- he also anchored the team's winning 4x800m relay win in 8:57.77. 

The Notre Dame signee went 1:54.13 in the 800m, 4:17.94 in the 1600m and 9:19.17 in the 3200m.
