PERFORMER OF THE YEAR Theresa Lewis Western Last year, there was a photo in The Sun from last spring's Class 3A state championships that appeared to show Lewis - with raised hands - crossing the finish line before Long Reach's Timisha Gomez in the 300 intermediate hurdles. The problem was that Lewis actually finished second to Gomez in that event, spoiling Lewis' hopes of sweeping the 100 high hurdles and the 300 intermediate hurdles. That image seared itself into Lewis' memory, and the junior made amends by taking both events at the state meet last month.
