CLASS D: Kenesaw's Tibbs wins title

Kenesaw's Lane Tibbs runs to the Class D 3,200-meter title
during the state track and field meet Friday in Omaha.

OMAHA — Lane Tibbs felt like he wasn't pushed much during the season in the 3,200-meter run.

On Friday at the state track and field meet at Omaha Burke, the Kenesaw junior certainly was. And he responded, winning the Class D race with a school record time of 10 minutes, 0.284 seconds — about a second better than the previous Kenesaw record that Tibbs said was set in the 1980s.

"My whole goal this season has been to break the longtime (3,200) record at school," Tibbs said. "I've been pushing myself. At districts and conference, I didn't really have anybody to push me to get me there.

"This state meet really put all the effort into the second mile to make the difference."
