WILLIAMSTON, Michigan — Lee Chiatalas’ career as a 400-meter runner began like so many do in track and field.

“It was a total accident,” Linden coach Clint Lawhorne said.

The Eagles needed someone to run a lap in the 1,600 relay. Chiatlas, primarily a hurdler, was thrown on the team to see what he could do.

“He ran a great split,” Lawhorne said. “It was like, ‘Hmm, there might be something to this.’”
