When Elsberry High School sophomore Dashaun Dodson traveled to Jefferson City last friday to compete in the 3200m run at the Missouri State Track Championships he was among the 16 best runners in the state.  

While his finish wasn’t what he would have liked,  Dodson has no reason to hang his head.  He ran the two miles in 11 minutes and 32 seconds.  He was cheered on by family members who got to make the trip.
