Thanks to Corey Thomas, no one shows up late for track meets anymore. Thats because one of the first events is the high jump, an event that Thomas made his own this winter. On Feb. 1 at the State Coaches Elite Meet, Thomas, a BC High senior, broke Greg Gonzalvess 28-year-old meet record when he cleared 7Æ feet to start competition at the Reggie Lewis Center. Though he didnt clear 7-feet again at a major meet, he cleared 6-11 at the state meet to break a 17-year-old record. He also won the 55-hurdles title at the state meet for the second straight year.
