LANE WHITE IS A STATE CHAMPION...
Lane White overcame adversity through hard work and determination to capture a state championship in the 400 and runner-up in the 200.
Lane White stands at the top of the podium - where he belongs.

JUNE 7, 2014 - COLUMBUS
After all he has been through, it was a fitting image - Lane White standing at the finish line looking at the scoreboard through his cool shades as his ripped leg and arm muscles quivered from 48.24 seconds of intense running.

It was a culmination of years of hard work, frustration and heartbreak, but Lane White finally had his day in the sun as he won the 400 Meter State Championship he has coveted since an injury forced him out of competition a year ago.

"It felt great when I crossed the finish line," White said. "With about 50 meters to go, I thought I had it. But again, anything can happen."

White knows by first hand experience because "anything" did happen to him last season.

He was in the middle of his junior season and peaking at the right time. His times were dropping with each race and he had his sights set on a state championship.

Unfortunately, in a home track meet of all places, White was running the final leg of a relay and pulled up coming around the turn. He fell to the track and knew he was in trouble.

He had severely strained his hamstring - forcing him to forgo his junior season until returning to anchor the 4x400 meter relay team to a third place finish at state.

Already self driven, White's misfortune put him into overdrive - as he trained harder than ever before at Enhance U.

With this training, White returned bigger and stronger to the track in the off-season as he won an indoor state championship in the 400 and then kept breaking his own school record on a consistent basis throughout the season.

All of the hard work - treating his body like a finely tuned sports car by what he took in and how he hard he drove it - paid huge dividends as he entered the state meet completely healthy and stronger than ever.

Still, even though White was leaving the rest of the competition in his wake coming down the final stretch of the 400 meter finals, there was always that fear of "anything can happen".

"I wasn't taking any chances," White explained of his strategy. "You never know what could happen. Someone could run a crazy PR. You just don't know."

As White crossed the finish line, everyone knew - he was a state champion.

Which made all of his frustration and misfortune worth it.

"It probably is a blessing in disguise," White said of the adversity he faced. "That's the word I would use. When I was a freshman, I never even thought about winning a state championship. It was probably my junior year when I went through the injury that I started thinking about it."

With his dream realized, White wasn't done as he was looking for a rare double - winning the 400 and 200.

But as White was headed back to prepare for his 200 meter dash finals he was forced to wait under a tent in the hot sun for the medal presentation - valuable time he needed to prepare for the 200 meter dash that was a short time later.

Still, White stayed focused and made it to the starting line just in time for his final race of his high school career.

And the Buccaneer senior gave every ounce of energy he had left, only to come up short in a photo finish - taking second to Lima Central Catholic's Jamir Coleman, who was also the 100 meter champion.

Finishing in a time of 21.95 - just .10 of a second slower than his qualifying time - White wouldn't use being held up for the medal presentation as an excuse.

"I am sure it affected me a little," White said. "But, you have so much adrenaline. I don't think it affected my time in the 200. I was hoping to get him at the end, but he's a great runner."

And so is Lane White, which he proved to the entire state over the weekend.

"It is a great way to finish," he said while sipping on a bottle of water. "Now I look forward to college."

College, where "anything" can happen - maybe even a national title.
