Sports Round-Up

The spring season is still in session, but the Eagles already have much to celebrate.

For one, the varsity boys volleyball team took first place in the first year of the NLCC. They finished the regular season with a 10-0 record.

Also, three varsity girls track runners qualified for the state meet, which will take place at Eastern Illinois University on May 19-20. Taylor Tilmon accomplished a rare feat, qualifying in the 100-, 200-, and 400-meter runs. She also just missed the school record in the 400-meter by .11.

Toyin Jackson qualified for state for the second time, this time in the long jump event. Olivia Schmitt, a freshman, broke her personal record in the 800-meter run by seven seconds to qualify in that event. She is the #3 freshman in the state in the 800-meter run.

“We had a team goal of top five. We finished 5th with 45 points and were only two points away from 3rd!” Head Coach Travis Shepherd said.
