Unfortunately, as a high school coach early in my career I had instant success in the short sprints. This success came in the form of multiple school records in the 100, 200, 400, 4×100, and 4×200. Along with these records we placed in the top three at State or better in the 100, 4×100, and 4×200. Now to even the most casual observer you might ask the question “why was this success unfortunate??
