The latest effort for the Hornet track standout came Saturday at the Kent-Meridian Invitational, where Dickson cranked out an 800-meter time of 1 minute, 50.89 seconds. Not only did the Brigham Young University-bound runner shatter his own school record, but the time now stands as the best in the nation this season.
