Three months ago, in Topeka, Don Nichols reached the final round of Super Comp before he was turned away by first-time winner Danielle Jaramillo-Miller. Nichols quickly made amends for that loss when he earned his first national event title in Brainerd. Paired with Donald Leisdon in the Super Comp final round, Nichols grabbed a big lead at the start and prevailed in an 8.899 to 8.877 double-breakout battle. Throughout the six-round race, Nichols was extremely sharp on the starting line with five reaction times of .012 or quicker, including a .004 in the final. He also tagged the 8.900 index perfectly in his quarterfinal win against Austin McClure, who wasn’t far behind with an 8.908.
