February 18, 2013Cary High School
WINSTON-SALEM - On the back of Bakri Abushouk, the Cary boys’ indoor track and field team finished second in the 4A state championships Saturday at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem.
Knightdale needed both of its wins in the 3,200-meter relay and the 1,600 meter relay to beat Cary 55-44.
The Imps thrived on the three individual-event wins of boys’ meet MVP Abushouk in the 1,000, 1,600 and 3,200.
Abushouk’s last win of the evening came in the 3,200, when he passed Broughton’s William Roberson in the final 50 meters to win. He finished at 9:25.4, a half-second ahead of Roberson.
“I never thought I’d trail the whole race (in the 3,200),” Abushouk said. “I was really struggling throughout that race and just hoped the pace didn’t get too quick. I just pushed and was able to stay close enough. That last push was all my faith that God would push me through.”
He won the 1,000 in 2:32.73 and the 1,600 in 4:14.56.
