Norman Grimes Jr., a former track star at Canyon High School, claimed second place in the 400-meter hurdles at the NACAC Championships on July 5 in Queretaro, Mexico.

Grimes, who is coming off a strong showing for Texas Tech’s national championship team, earned the silver in Mexico by finishing in a time of 50.07 seconds while running in the U-23 division for Team USA at the event, which brings together teams from North America, Central America and the Caribbean.

Grimes’ showing at the international level came about a month after he was second in the 400 hurdles at the NCAA championships as a sophomore. He also won the event during the Big 12 Championship.

At Canyon, Grimes was a state champion in the 300 and 110 hurdles, and was ranked No. 1 nationally and in the world in the 400 hurdles in the Class of 2016. He was the 2015 World Youth Champion and 2015 Pan Am Junior Champion in that event.


The Session is Over

We took a couple of things across the finish line, a number of conservative policies were killed, and a very dangerous and corrupt precedent was set with the impeachment of Ken Paxton.
