Lincoln Lutheran senior standout hurdler Colton Meyer will miss the postseason after breaking his foot during the final event of the Archbishop Bergan Invitational track and field meet Thursday night in Fremont.
Lutheran coach Sue Ziegler said Meyer was running his leg of the boys 1,600-meter relay when he went down. Just minutes earlier, Meyer had helped the Warriors’ 400 relay team break the school record with a time of 44.26 seconds. He swept the hurdle events Thursday, winning the 110 highs in :14.76 and the 300 intermediates in :38.91.
Meyer, a Concordia recruit, was leading the state in the 300s with a :38.8 at the Tri County Invitational last month. He’s also among the Class C leaders in the 110s with a :14.7.
“He had a heck of a career at Lincoln Lutheran and has made a huge impact on our program,” Ziegler said. “I feel blessed to have been able to coach him these four years.”
