The 5-foot-11, 160-pound junior swept the 100- and 200-meter dash at the Class 3A state meet, clocking personal-best times in both and leading the Chiefs to a runner-up finish as a team. Rated No. 5 in the national MileSplit 50, Anthony’s time of 10.30 seconds in the 100 ranked as the nation’s No. 9 wind-legal clocking among 2021 prep competitors and, according to MileSplit.com, it was the No. 1 wind-legal performance in state high school history. His 21.11 in the 200 ranked No. 25 nationally. He also won the 100 dash at June’s adidas Boost Boston Games and chipped in a fourth-place finish in the long jump at the state meet.
Anthony has maintained a B average in the classroom. He will begin his senior year of high school this fall.
A member of the Mesa Mt. Olive Baptist Church community, he has volunteered locally on behalf of the Xcel Athletics Track and Field Club, providing instruction for youth athletes.
