MEADE WINS THREE, AGAIN, AT HIGHLAND PARK INVITATIONAL

April 25, 1990

— Another track meet, another triple win for Lawrence High's Kendall Meade.

Typically, Meade won two sprints the 100 and 200 Tuesday at the Highland Park Invitational. But his third gold medal was not as the anchorman on a relay team. Instead, he won the long jump with a leap of 21-10 .

The Lions ran away with another team title, scoring 158 points to runnerup Hi Park's 65. LHS totaled 12 event titles.

Meade ran the 200 in 21.49, his best ever. His brother Brad and Christian Adair also turned in two of best times in the state this season, taking second and third in 21.82 and 22.04 respectively.

Tuesday's gale force southwest winds hampered the 200 runners, Kendall Meade, said. They did not, however, skew their times on Highland Park's east-west track.

"I knew I had to take the first turn as fast as I could, because with the kind of kick my brother has I knew I could get caught," he said. "The (southwest) wind was a disadvantage because coming off the curve it was blowing me to the left side of the track."

Among the Lions' other winners was Dan Lalich, who nipped the Scots' Steve Schaefer in the javelin. Lalich threw 203-1 to Schaefer's 200-4.

As usual, Lawrence swept the 400, 1600 and 3200 relays. Interestingly, the 1600 relay team, which turned in a time of 3:31.31 consisted of regular Joe Pickett and three distance men Ned Ryun, Drew Ryun and David Johnston. Johnston also was a winner in the 800 and 1600 runs.

Lawrence's girls did not attend the Hi Park meet, but both the boys and girls will travel Friday to the 14-team Topeka Seaman Invitational.
