The Area 12 Track and Field competition was held this past weekend at SIU-Edwardsville and like today, the weather was terrible. For a while it seemed the weather would clear and and they did start some of the races. Two of our athletes got to compete in the 100 M Run and both won 1st place. Congratulations to Cari Klaus and Louise Noe! It then started raining harder and the rest of the events were canceled. A drawing was held to see which athletes will compete at the state level. The following lucky athletes are:
Tyler Hill – 25 M assisted walk and 50 M assisted run Cari Klaus – 200 M run Heather McKenney – 200 M run and tennis ball throw Caleb Caines – 200 M run and 100 M run Connor Layeski – 200 M run Ashley Johnston – 400 M walk and softball throw Sarah Heizer – 800 M walk Joey Kraus – 100 M run Jordan Kohlmeier – 100 M run Walter Bodie – standing long jump Nicholas Wilhelm – standing long jump Jamie Lee – standing long jump and softball throw Nicole Lokken – standing long jump Gina White – standing long jump
