Kelly Walsh senior Darius Wiggins capped a solid track season with two championships at the 4A State Meet in Casper over the weekend. On Saturday, Wiggins won the 200-meter dash in 22.28, and in the 400, Wiggins beat Isaiah Haliburton of Thunder Basin by one-hundredths of a second to win gold. Wiggins ran 49.49. He had the best time in the state this year in the 400 in 48.97 so he was unbeatable in that event.

Wiggins will be attending the University of Wyoming for track and his father Shawn was a star wide receiver for the Pokes from 1987-90. We caught up with Darius on Saturday at the state meet for his thoughts on the incredible amount of success he enjoyed when it mattered most.
