19 things to celebrate from 2019: No. 11 – Syreal Holland’s surreal speed

Auburn senior Syreal Holland went out in style this spring.

Holland blazed to NIC-10 titles in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes. Holland won going away in both races. His :11.04 beat Dontay Thompson of Freeport by 0.36 seconds. His :22.38 in the 200 was nearly a second better than Thompson’s :23.23.

It was Holland’s second straight NIC-10 100-meter title.

Holland was the top performer in a solid meet for Rockford Public Schools. RPS athletes won seven events.

Holland followed up the performance by qualifying for state in both events.
