"It is my honor and privilege to recognize and commend all of the junior high track athletes that competed in the IESA state track meet this year,” Becker said. 

“Our junior high athletes qualified and competed in the IESA events at East Peoria's EastSide Centre with Jaxson Meier, Nathan Robinson, Colin Elgin, Jett Olson and Caden Rachel running in the 4x100 relay, and Colin running in the 200-meter dash as an individual,” Becker added. “The relay team finished second at sectionals and 15th out of 34 teams at state with a time of 54.98 seconds.  Colin won the 200-meter dash at sectionals this year.”
