Whiteland Community High School sprinter Brandon Benson’s track career might not have been fast out of the blocks, but it’s found its groove in the home stretch.

A junior, Benson turned heads at Thursday’s Columbus North Sectional with victories in the 100- and 200-meter dashes while also taking part in the Warriors’ first-place 400-meter relay.

“Going into today I was thinking of scratching him in the 100, but a time of 10.91 (seconds) is a medal in the state finals,” Whiteland coach Brandon Bangel said.
