Stanley Miller runs in a fast crowd.
So, exactly how fast is Miller? He’s the fastest man in Lebanon County.
On Saturday at Lebanon High School, Miller put forth a remarkable performance at the annual Lebanon County Track and Field Championships. It was the best performance by any male at the county meet not named Jesse Cruise.
Using his speed, the Annville-Cleona sprinter captured three events. Miller struck gold in the meet’s most glamorous event – the 100-meter dash – with a time of 11.40.
Miller also finished first in the 200-meter dash, where he was clocked in 23.03. And Miller generated enough foot speed to pop a 21-3.5 in the long jump, which was also good enough for a gold medal.
Miller’s speed will certainly be put to the test as the track and field postseason progresses, first at the Lancaster-Lebanon League meet at Hempfield High School and then at the District Three Track and Field Championships at Shippensburg University.
Miller’s peak could qualify him for states.
