REED CITY — Nick Douglass graduated from Reed City High School sports in impressive style.

Douglass was on two relay teams which earned All-State honors.

In open events, he also had an impressive season. He got his personal record in the 100-meter dash in 11.52 seconds. He also got his PR in the 200 meters with 23.71 seconds.

“I was outstanding in the 100 and kind of decent in the 200,” Douglass said.

Douglass was the lead leg in both the 4×100 and 4×200 relays which included Jackson Price, Noah Jones and Phillip Jones-Price. Both relay teams won their Division 3 regional.

The 4×100 relay team was seventh in 44.45 seconds and the 4×200 relay was sixth in 1:31.49 in the state meet.

It was the same foursome in 2018 and was 11th in the state meet in 44.64 seconds.

“Starting out the season, it was pretty rough,” Douglass said. “I dropped two hand offs and it was a rough start. After that, we started picking it up more and we were able to PR this year and were able to improve our hand offs and make more improvement toward our relays and times.”

Douglass’ goal was to place at the state meet and Coyotes fulfilled those goals.
