Matthew Boling, who has signed a track scholarship with UGA, was clocked with the fastest 100-meter time under “all conditions” in high school history on Saturday.
Not the fastest time in Texas high school history, but for the entire country.
The senior speedster was clocked at 9.98 seconds in the 100 – only the second sub-10 ever by a high school sprinter. It happened on Saturday at Boling’s region track meet in Webster, Texas.
Update: Unfortunately, Boling’s time won’t officially count in the record books because it was wind-aided, per MileSplit.coms Cory Mull. Boling ran with a wind reading of 4.2 meters/second, which makes it “outside the legal requirements.” Per the website, the time converts to 10.16 seconds.
Nevertheless, it was still the fastest time for a high schooler in history under “all conditions.” Besides, as Mull pointed out, the bottom line is … “sub-10 is sub-10.”
The fast-footed Boling signed with the Bulldogs last fall in what UGA’s track coach called “the best recruiting class in our history.”
