Davian Burke has done it again.

For the third straight year the Banner Christian athlete is a state champion in the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles.

Burke claimed both titles May 17-18 in the Virginia Independent Schools Division II state championships at Sports Backers Stadium.

In both events, his times (14.38 for 100 and 38:05 for 300) were faster than the Division I winners.

In the 300, the Bearcat broke a 24-year-old record of 14.42 held by Benedictine’s Steve McDonnough.

Burke will continue his education with a track scholarship at George Mason University.
