HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The wait was long for the Hattiesburg High boys track and field program. But, after winning its first state title last month, the victory was that much more sweeter.
Tigers head coach Charles Green waited 15 years for this moment.
"It takes a lot of drive commitment and dedication," Green said.
Junior Keirston Paige fell during the 300 hurdles at the 5A state championship meet. He still crossed the line first. This was symbolic of the squad's determination to get the job done in 2017.
