Williams wins double gold, sets state record

Tevin Williams left his mark on Oklahoma prep sports in his final high school sporting event.

Before heading to Baylor University in less than two weeks, Williams won a pair of gold medals and set a state record at his final Class 6A state track and field meet.

“It was surreal,” Williams said. “From the start of the season, I’ve always wanted to win state, but wasn’t looking for a state record, because I was more focused on winning state than getting a record. I was really happy with the way I performed.

“I wanted it last year, too, because I was projected to do good and place top three. Obviously, COVID happened and missed a year of that, so this was something I’ve been determined to do for the past year.”

On Saturday, the Stillwater High senior, who will graduate Friday night with his classmates, accomplished a goal he set last year before the pandemic shut spring sports down for the year. He also set a pair of personal records – one of which was an Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association record that was set just three years ago.
