McLEOD, Texas — McLeod's Keldyn Schubert has qualified for the Class 2A state track meet for the third time in his high school career in the 300 meter hurdles.
Schubert will competed this year, not having a junior season due to COVID-19 and after claiming the silver medal his sophomore year.
His story begins before that, though. When Schubert was a fourth grader, he was at track practice one day with his parents and told them he'd go to state in hurdles one day.

The star Longhorns earned his ticket to the state touranament as a wild card. He was the fifth-fastest time in the event.
Schubert also will compete in the boys All-Star basketball game in San Antonio late this year.
