CHARLESTON W.Va (WSAZ) -- For the fourth consecutive season Jefferson won the Class AAA boys State Title. They were followed by the Cabell Midland Knights in second.

In distance, all eyes were on distance runner Jacob Burcham. The Midland senior dominated the state meet last year by setting new records in the 1600, 3200, and 800 meter run. Burcham was well on his way to hitting those marks again when his 4x800 relay team set another state record on Friday. He also finished first in the 1600 and 3200 on Saturday. It would appear that those 3.5 competitive miles would catch up with the future Oklahoma athlete, as he was upset in the 800 meter run by Point Pleasant’s Caleb Riffle. Burcham took third.

This year added a healthy dose of freshman to the mix. Capital’s Tristan Slater set a new personal best to win the Class AAA championship in pole vault. Wayne HS freshman Kade Sebastian was not intimidated by the big event either, he took first place in the Class AA 100-meter dash.
