Pittmon out-leaned Logan McKenna of Belmond-Klemme to win his first 200 title after finishing in second place a year ago. Pittmon's 22.44 was just enough to edge McKenna's 22.46.

Pittmon now has two titles in the 100 meter dash and now a championship in the 200 meter dash. Trever Ryan of OA-BCIG has also had quite the weekend. With a win in the Class 2A 200 meter dash, Ryan has now won three gold medals and will likely win a fourth. Ryan's golds had come in the 100 and the 4x200 before winning the 200, and he will try to lead the 4x100 team to a fourth gold. That 4x100 team has the fastest preliminary time.
