About this Article

Prospect senior Dave Kendziera knew he had just one race left in his high school career so, he reasoned, why not go after it with everything he had? "I just figured I would go out as hard and as fast as I could and leave everything out there," he said. The approach worked well. Kendziera, in his last race in a Prospect uniform in the finals of the Class 3A 300 hurdles, left little doubt about who the state champion would be.
