On Friday night, the Track & Field team competed in the IHSA Sectional meet at Lyons Township. It was a great night for the Crusaders who placed 3rd as a team.
Jim Baker is a 2-time state qualifier, as he was the sectional champion in the long jump and leaped into second place in the triple jump on his last attempt. The 4×200 team of Rob Groyon, Michael Butler-Kindle, Ronan Dolan, & Ty McCoy just missed the school record, but ran well enough to finish second and punch their ticket to the state meet.
Sophomore Justin Palmer ran another personal best in the 300 hurdles and had a fantastic finish to his race earning him second place and a state meet birth. The Crusaders ended the night in thrilling fashion by capturing second place in the 4×4 with the team of Palmer, McCoy, Tommy Gleeson, and Butler-Kindle.
