With a night's rest, Green came back the following day to earn his second individual title in the 1,600m.
Green took the lead, kept it and it just kept expanding as the race continued. He clocked a 2:08 for this first 800m with a 20m cushion on the rest of the field.
On the bell lap, Green began to accelerate and put a 50m lead on freshman Luke Athay of Idaho Falls.
The Borah senior finished in a solo effort of 4:07.90 and with a fist pump celebration as she crossed the finish line. He was just four-hundredths of a second from tying his personal best.
He ran a 4:07.86 at a dual meet against Boise Senior back in April. This was the second-fastest time recorded by an Idaho athlete.
Throughout Green's high school career, he hasn't lost a state title in the 1,600m.
