MERIDIAN, Miss. – Former Lakeside and current Meridian Community College sprinter, Chris Lewis, has signed a scholarship to run track for the LSU Tigers.

Lewis, a 2014 graduate of Lakeside, signed with Meridian out of high school where he has excelled. Schools throughout the country began taking notice of his speed, and when the Tigers came calling, it was an easy decision.

“It’s a dream come true,” Lewis said. “It really means a lot to me. I remember having a lot of doubters. There were people who said I’d never be fast enough to run for LSU. Right now, I feel great.”
