For the final time, Lucas Wallace and Carl McQuay emerged from the northwest corner of the Scheumann Stadium track and pulled away from their 200-meter dash competitors. 

The Lafayette Jeff seniors ran shoulder to shoulder over the final 50 meters, neither backing down, as if running against his fiercest rival. 

Per custom, Wallace edged McQuay by four-hundredths of a second, breaking a 15-year-old regional record in the process. It was one of four Lafayette Jeff Regional championships for the Bronchos, who plan to cap their careers with one more memorable performance at the state meet at Indiana University next week.

Congratulations to all the local runners and Good Luck next week at the State Finals!
