Competing in the (unofficial) Illinois Indoor State Championships for track and field, my son and his teammates won the 4 x 800m relay. Their time: 7:58.10! They finish the indoor season as the #1 Illinois relay, the only team to break 8 minutes, and the #30 fastest in the US! He came back an hour later to finish 9th individually in the 1600m in a time of 4:25 - his personal best. He has faced much adversity in his high school running career and we couldn't be more proud and thrilled for his success!
