The North Dakota state track meet is this weekend, and one of the great stories heading there is North's DeSean Thompson. The junior missed all of last season with a knee injury. He's come back stronger than ever. Thompson won 100 and 200 meter titles at the East Region Saturday and is ranked in the top 3 in state in both, so he can't wait for the State Meet.

Desean Thompson – North Junior Sprinter: “I love the competition and having people just as fast as me to go even faster. And I love just having all the people there watching the races, cheering, not just for me but cheering in general.”

Thompson holds the North 200 meter school record.
