The Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School Boys' Track Team captured the SCISA 2A state title for the fourth year in a row, beating multiple 3A schools along the way.  The boys' team this year first struggled to find athletes to fill key voids left by runners who had graduated; however, as the season progressed, key runners stepped to the plate and made significant contributions to the team.  In the end, the group finished first overall, beating the second place team Spartanburg Christian by more than thirteen points.

Leading the team in scoring were Senior Mark Buyck who ran the anchor leg of the State Championship 4x800 relay and the second place 4x400 relay.  Mark also was State Champion in the 800 and 400, posting a 400 time that won the event overall, beating all 1, 2, and 3A runners.  Junior TJ McElveen was State Champion in the 100, second in the 200, third in the Long Jump, and ran the anchor leg of the third place 4x100 relay.  Senior Will Rivers won both the 110 Hurdles and 400 Hurdles as well as running the second leg of the third place 4x100 relay.  Senior Kimani Williams tied for first in the High Jump, came in fifth in the 200, and ran the third leg of the third place 4x100 relay.  Senior Chris McDowell was State Champion in the Discus and ran the first leg of the third place 4x100 relay.  Junior Blake Kirby was State Champion in the Shot Put.  Senior Matt Moseley was third in the Shot Put.  Junior Grant MacPherson was fifth in the 400 and ran for the second place 4x400 relay team, as did Sophomores William Jones and Tyler Godfrey.  Tyler Godfrey also was State Champion in the 4x800 relay along with fellow sophomore Grayson Hill and Senior Palmer Jones.

Overall, the Titan boys' team repeated their tradition of excellence and proved that when faced with a challenge, they were tough enough to rise to a new level of competition.  Coach Amy Rivers stated, "On paper, this team probably should not have won, but it is hard to measure heart and determination.  The level of desire this team had to carry on a winning tradition is what brought us yet another state title."
