Congratulations to the girls 4×800 (pictured in last week’s Sectionals article) and the boys 4×200, high jump, discus, and shot put (pictured above) who competed at the IHSA State Championships. The Sun Warriors put their best foot forward against the best athletes in the state of Illinois. Potentially even more exciting than the record number of Sun Warrior state qualifiers is the fact that only one out of the eleven will be graduating, meaning the future is bright!
This state milestone was a testament not only to those who competed, but to the entire track & field program. Each and every individual who put their time, energy, and ability into this season pushed their teammates to get better, culminating in record setting post season success! This same approach will continue to pay dividends as the Sun Warriors look to state yet another step forward next season.
Although all meets are done for the year, there is one last chance to compete (for fun). Remember to mark your calendars for the 4th Annual Sun Warrior 5k and alumni picnic, happening on Saturday, June 10 (the morning after Solorio’s sports banquet). See you there!
