St. T Invite a PR Fest for ALAH Boys Track Team

The ALAH boys track team traveled to Macon County on May 12th for the first ever Decatur St. Teresa Invite. Held on the host’s amazing new orange oval, elite performers from across the state turned in 126 PR’s as well as 34 Illinois 1A & 2A top 10 marks. The Knight’s responded with excellent results while tuning up for next week’s IHSA Sectional.

Max Duzan (8th/11.33) and Payton Warrior (20th/11.97) each run personal 100m best. Warrior nearly PR’s with a 24.75 in the 200. Cash Hale drops a huge PR in the 400 (57.25) while Parker Beck also runs a big personal best in 66.8. Cruz Hale covers the half mile in a near best of 2:10.66 (11th) while Jacob Adcock runs his first 2 lapper of the year in a PR of 2:11.84. Ryan Appleby covers the 110H in 20.16 (22nd) and Easton Frederick does the same over 300M in a 47.12PR. The 4×100 (47.86/13th) and 4×200 (1:38.42/8th) group of Gingerich, Schrock, Frederick, and Warrior post season bests in both events. Parker Dick throws the Shot 23’5 ½”, 28th while Kamden Morfey throws a Discus PR breaking the 100 foot barrier at 101’8” in 24th. Triple Jumpers Cash Hale and Tristan Keagle bound 34’5 ½”(17) and 30’6 ½”(20) respectively.

The 1600 fast section was of an Invitational nature and the times were reflective. Bryson Grant of Iroquois West takes the gold in a state top 10 time of 4:23.83. Knight’s Senior Logan Beckmier forged a fast pace early and finished 4th in a state #12 time of 4:26.94. This is a new PR for Logan and he becomes 2nd fastest in school history. Teammate Lyle Adcock was right behind covering the metric mile in 4:33.82 to finish 7th just off his best.

The boys will make their run at qualifying for state finals Wednesday May 17 at the Tuscola Sectional. Field events start at 4:30 with Running events beginning at 6pm.
