Congrats to Gage Fox and Dorian Whitmore for qualifying for the IHSA State Meet. Gage Fox took 1st at the Sectional Meet running a big PR in the 1600m. Dorian took 2nd in Long Jump coming up just 0.01m short of his PR. Both will compete this coming Thursday at Eastern Illinois University.
Also scoring points for the Crusaders were Chris Kellogg in the 800m (3rd Place), Vontez Dent in the Triple Jump (5th Place), and JJ Green in the 300m Hurdles (6th Place). We took 9th out of 15 teams.
We also want to recognize our Seniors who competed in their final meet of high school: Bobby Behmer, Chris Kellogg, Joshua Oetting, and Caleb Richard. I am proud of each of you and you will all be missed next year. God's Blessings next year.


Congratulations to Adelyn Richard on Qualifying for the IHSA State Track and Field Meet for Triple Jump. She jumped a PR of 9.81 meters.
Brooke Soles also scored a point for the team taking 6th in the Long Jump.
As a team we placed 11th out of 16 teams competing, scoring 9 points.


Congratulations to Gage Fox on running an 8 second PR and breaking the 5 minute mark in the 1600m run yesterday. Gage ran a 4:57.65 to take 12th in a very strong field of runners (5:49 was the slowest runner at the meet). For those who do not know, breaking 5 minutes is a big accomplishment for a distance runner and we think he is set to improve that PR quite a bit before the year is up.

A lot of big performances by Rockford Lutheran at the meet at Oregon last night. The boys team, finally back to our full team, took 2nd out of 4 teams. All of those teams we will see again in the Sectional meet.
Some highlights include: Dorian Whitmore (24.32) and Caleb Richard (24.36) running the two fastest times in the 200m since I have taken over the program (5 years ago). Bobby Behmer (36.84m) throwing the second farthest discus throw and Adelyn Richard (9.72m) jumping the second farthest triple jump for the school in the same amount of time.
Those having high school PRs for the boys include Jonah Ballenger (100m, 200m), Bobby Behmer (Discus, SP, 100m), Vontez Dent (TJ), Carter Ellerton (100m), Gage Fox (3200m), Dylan Reiss (100m, 200m), Caleb Richard (200m), Jalen Robinson (200m), Dorian Whitmore (100m, 200m), and Trystan Zeller (200m, LJ)
Those with high school PRs for the girls include Adelyn Richard (200m, TJ) and Ruthie Wriedt (Discus).
We are back at it again on Tuesday at Stillman Valley.

Favorite comment from the meet tonight was spoken from the official to Gage Fox and was something like, "are you in all the events?" Doubling in the 800 and 400 is a difficult task, especially when there is virtually no time between them and you already raced the 3200.

Favorite outcome was Brooke Soles in Long Jump going 4.69 meters (about 15-4.5), which in my book is an 8 inch PR. Close second and third are Addie Richard breaking 30 seconds in the 200m (29.7) and Dorian Whitmore breaking 6m in Long Jump (6.07m or 19-10.75 feet).

Athlete that just keeps improving is Jonah Ballenger, running a 0.76 second PR in the 200m tonight and placing third in the meet. Trystan Zeller also had a half meter PR in the Long Jump.

Ella Todd continued her great start from Friday with a 2nd place finish in the 100m. And Ruthie picked up a 1st place finish in Shot Put and 2nd place finish in Discus.

Overall, we took 2nd out of three teams.
