IHSA Sectionals at Moline 5/18

Jon Moore qualified for the IHSA State Track and Field meet by clearing 6' 3" in the HJ.  There were many VERY CLOSE misses by others:  Armani Atwater by 0.02 in the 100m and 0.20 in the 200m.  The 4x200 relay ran a season best but fell short by 0.80 seconds and Marcellous Johnson missed the TJ qualifying mark by 5".  This meet was a fantastic conclusion to an exceptional season for the Maroons.  With the bulk of the varsity team returning in 2018, we look forward to continuing this upward trend for Moline Track and Field!

4x200 Rogers, Williamson, Atwater, Henderson     1:30.11
