AUSTIN – The legend of Fort Bend Marshall track continues to grow.

Heading into the 2019 UIL State Track & Field Meet, the Buffs were seeking what could be their fourth team title in the last five years and their relay teams were the talk of the country.

Living up to those expectations can be tough for some teams but not Fort Bend Marshall.

"There's not really pressure," Korey King said. "It just makes us run harder because we know there's always someone out there to beat us. We have a target on our back."

The target couldn't have been any bigger on Friday night.

With three relay teams qualified, Fort Bend Marshall was the hands down favorite heading into the day and the Buffs lived up to the hype.

Fort Bend Marshall took gold in the 4×100, 4×200 and 4×400-meter relays, Devon Achane won the 200-meter dash and the Buffs claimed the Class 5A Men's Team State Championship for the fourth time in the last five years.

The Buffs finished with 86 points beating out Lancaster, which had 56 points, for the top spot.

"To walk away with a team title is unbelievable," Delevon Campbell said. "It is the norm for Fort Bend Marshall. We're trying to set a legacy back in Houston."
