AUSTIN — Lampasas junior Cameron Everts improved on his sophomore season in the 300-meter hurdles.

After placing second in the event last season at the Class 4A state meet last season, Everts captured a gold medal Saturday night, crossing the finish line in 38.07 seconds. Sophomore teammate Ace Whitehead placed fifth in the event with a time of 39.02.

The showing came on the heels of frustration after the Badgers’ 800 relay team failed to finish the race after missing a handoff on the race’s final exchange an hour earlier.

Lampasas concluded the state meet with a strong showing, though, placing second in the 1,600 relay. The quartet of Luke Palacios, Brady Carroll, Whitehead and Everts had a time of 3:20.26.

The Badgers tied for fifth in the team standings with 28 points.
