Snook ISD Teacher and Coach Lewis Edmonson recently participated in the U.S.A.T.F. Masters Track and Field championships in Boston, Massachusetts and brought home a pair of gold medals.

Edmonson was on the Southwestern Sprinter team's 4x200 relay that won first place in the men's 30-39 age division with a time of 1:34.8.

That was .2 seconds off the world record for the 30-39 age group.

In the 60 meter hurdles Edmonson hit the tape in 8.18 seconds, which was the fastest time in the country for his age group this year.

Edmonson's hurdle time was good enough to earn him an invitation to Budapest, Hungry, and the World Championships later on this month, but because of the short notice the Snook ISD Teacher/Coach said he won't be able to make the trip.

Edmonson says his next big meet will be the PENN Relays where he will compete in the shuttle hurdle relays and the 4x100 relay.
