Top 10 sports stories, No. 4: Coal Ridge track relay team wins state title
Cody Walls ran the final leg with the speed he showcased playing many a sport at Coal Ridge High School.
Zipping across the finish ahead of all those in pursuit, Walls, who also played football, basketball and baseball in high school, polished off the Titans’ first state title of any kind at the May state track and field meet in Lakewood.
