Corning’s Caitlyn Stroud Wins 100M and 200M


May 19th, 2012 by Chris Parks

Caitlyn Stroud of Corning fought through injuries to win the 100 Meter Dash and the 200 Meter Dash State Titles in Class 1A Girls competition at Drake Stadium in Des Moines.  Stroud ran a time of 12.75 to win the 100 Meter dash then promptly went to the infield to put a boot back on her left foot.

Stroud followed up that gutty performance with another great run to win the 200 Meter Dash with a time of 22.16.  Immediately after winning the race Stroud went to her knees in obvious pain and holding the small of her back.  She walked off under her own power fine and appeared to be recovering well but it was a pretty gutty performance for Stroud in both races.
