Justin Robinson

Hazelwood West junior Justin Robinson will be looking for individual state titles in the Class 5 boys 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes. He posted sizzling times of 10.52 seconds in the 100, 21.08 in the 200 and 47.17 in the 400 at the Class 5, Sectional 2 meet at Lafayette last Saturday. He is among the nation’s top performers in the 400.

It was a tremendous year of boys’ track and field in the St. Louis metro area in 2019. The area produced three state championship teams in East St. Louis, Hazelwood West and Trinity, plus several sparkling individual performances.

The leader of this extraordinary year of track was junior star Justin Robinson of Hazelwood West, who led the Wildcats to their first state championship while setting state records and putting his name near the top of several national performance lists.

Robinson heads this year’s St. Louis American Boys’ All-Area Track and Field Teams.
