The 6-foot-2, 178-pound senior swept the 110- and 300-meter hurdles events at the Class 6 state meet this past season, leading the Titans to a 13th-place finish as a team. Bourne set personal-best marks in both events at the state meet and, at the time of his selection, Bourne’s time of 13.69 seconds in the 110 hurdles ranked No. 7 nationally among 2021 prep competitors. Also a two-time state indoor champion in the 55-meter hurdles, his 37.29 in the 300 hurdles this spring ranked No. 18 nationally.
Bourne has maintained a weighted 4.63 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at the University of South Florida this fall.
The 2021 Student of the Year at Cosby High, Bourne has volunteered locally at the Midlothian Family YMCA and with the Special Olympics. A National Art Society member, he has also donated his time as a youth track and football coach.
