Cass Tech senior Simonae Dismuke finished her high school track and field career in style, winning four gold medals in the Detroit Public School League championship meet, and has been named PSL Proud Strong Learner of the Week.
Dismuke, who is headed to Central Michigan University on a track scholarship, defended her crown in the girls’ 200 meters (26.61) and 400 meters (57.46) to lead Cass Tech’s girls to a repeat team championship. She also ran legs on the Technicians’ winning 4×200 relay (1:44.65) and 4×400 relay (4:10.64).
“She’s a very tough runner and a very hard worker,’’ Cass Tech coach Chris Wright said. “As outstanding as she’s been in high school, I expect she will continue to get better competing in college.”
The Detroit Public School League Proud Strong Learner of the Week award is representative of the league’s top boys’ and girls’ athletes. The award is presented by the DPS Office of Athletics and is sponsored by Detroit-area McDonald’s owner-operators
