Justin Veteto leads the 110 meter hurdles during the Boys Track & Field Regional on Thursday, May 29, 2014 at Connersville High School in Connersville, Indiana.

This year, Trojan senior Justin Veteto won the state title in the 300 in a school-record time of 36.85 seconds.

Veteto’s points were instrumental in helping Center Grove finish in third place as a team at the state meet.
