Hours after hearing that Luther North will not open its doors next year for students, the Wildcat track and field team opened its last season at the Henry Crown fieldhouse against 10 other schools. Our girls team finished 3rd overall and the very young guys team finished 8th. Our highlights began with our 3 returning all-state athletes. Kayla Armstrong took first in the 400m, 2nd in the 200 and long jump, and 4th in the 60m dash. Jada Williams took 3rd in three events: 400m, 200, and 60m. Natasha Bernett won the hurdles, took 2nd in the triple jump, 3rd in the long jump,. and 5th in the 200m.
The guys were lead by Sam Miller who took first in the high jump with a leap of 5'10, and took 2nd in the hurdles.
