Cherry Creek junior Marcus Miller was a contender most of the final day of the Class 5A state track meet on May 19 at Jeffco Stadium.
Miller was third in the 100 meters and fourth in the 200 meters, but finally got to stand on the top of the awards podium as part of the Bruins' state champion 4x100 relay team.
Dimitri Stanley, Andrew Wilson-axpe, Kyle Hanlan and Miller locked down the state title with a time of 42.46 on a rainy, cold final day of the three-day meet.
“We ran pretty well on a cold day,” said Miller. “You have to warm up longer before the race, but it's state. You just have to go out and compete. Everybody is running in the same weather. The competition was good.”
The Cherry Creek boys finished second in the team standings with 71 points. The Bruins girls team was sixth.
Delaney Smith of Cherry Creek, the defending 300-meter hurdles champion, was third and she finished fourth in the 100 hurdles.
Littleton senior Brittany Line earned all the team points for the Lions with a fourth-place finish in the 4A shot put with a 38-05.00 effort.
Arapahoe's Faythe Sheffield was seventh in the 5A shot put competition with a throw of 36-09.50.
