Devante Lacy, a senior at Klein Oak High School in Spring, Texas, improved upon his US #1 time in the 400 meter dash at his area qualifier meet for his Texas regional qualifier by becoming the first quarter miler of the 2014 outdoor season nationally to break 47 seconds in the open 400 with a 46.95 PR clocking at the UIL 5A District 13-14 Area Meet on Wednesday afternoon. Lacy had primarily been a 200 meter specialist with a 21.21 lifetime best his past two springs of track before stepping up to 400 meters for his last outdoor season. The move has paid off well after winning the Rice University Victor Lopez Classic on the weekend opposite of the Texas Relays. While Lacy was not in Austin for the Texas Relays, he should certainly by at UT in a few weeks for the Texas state championships and a favorite to win the 5A state title in the 400 meter dash as the current national leader in the event.
