This past weekend Brownsburg senior Dominic Calhoun would run in several events including the 60m dash, 200m dash, as well as be a participant in the 4x200m with Advancement Through Athletics (ATA).

In the 200m event he would win and earn a new indoor PR as well as position himself just outside of the top 10 nationally with an 11th place ranking. He would dominate the 130 participant field besting the nearest competitor by nearly half a second with a time of 21.48.

The Ohio State commit owns a PR of 21.30 from the 2023 IHSAA outdoor state meet where he would take home the 200m title by .14 seconds. Calhoun would also earn state runner up last year in the 100m.

His race this past weekend was a .31 improvement from his race earlier this season at Morolake (pictured above). He also would run to a new PR in the 60m dash as he would run to a 6.90 and be runner up to Bloomington North's Jaidyn Johnson who ran a 6.87. Johnson's 6.76 from the Morolake Akinosun Elite Invitational has him ranked 6th in the country while Calhoun's performance has him in a tie for top 50 nationally. Dominic is 6 for 7 on breaking the 7 second barrier.

ATA would also field a 4x200m squad that was aided by Dominic's effort that placed in a narrow second to Milwaukee Speed Academy by two hundredths of a second. The squad would be under the previous facility record and also consisted of Noah Wellington, Matthew Wray, and Evan Williams who were able to get the stick around the 800m race in a 1:26.85.
