Malik Hamilton(sr) is a returning all-city sprinter for Lane's boys track team. He finished 6th in the CPS meet star studded 100 meter dash finals that featured 5 all-state sprinters. He also finished 4th in the 200 meter dash - where he beat 400 meter state champion Jeremiah Watson of Urban Prep- Bronzeville.
However, during a Lane Tech football game earlier in the football season, I saw the unfortunate site of Hamilton with a cast in his right leg and on crutches. "I hurt my leg in the St. Patrick game," said Hamilton who is a running back on the Lane Tech football team. Fortunately, near the end of the season, I saw him again on the Lane sidelines- this time without a cast and seemingly in high spirits. Lane's sprint team success will count heavily on the services of healthy Allen in this upcoming track season.
