Dennis dominated the short sprints at the WIAC Championship for a second consecutive season, claiming both the 100 meters and 200 meters races in La Crosse. The sophomore — who also plays cornerback for the Blugold football team — took the 100 in 10.43 (+0.7m/s), giving him the top-two fastest times in the division this season. He then claimed the 200 in division-leading fashion, running a 20.96 (+2.1m/s) to win the race by nearly four-tenths of a second. He also lent his talents to the Blugolds' 4×100 and 4×400 relays, which finished third and fourth, respectively.
