SPC Indoor RecapSaturday, March 19 2022 - SPC Championship Indoor
The track finals started with a bang as the 4 x 800 set a new school record of 8:13.84. Breaking the previous record by more than 6 seconds that was set in 2010. Mike Forbear (2:04), Alex Rojo (2:04.8), Cam Mulyk (2:02.5), and Paul DeAvila (2:02.3) all ran great legs and battled all the way to the line to finish second in the first race of the night. At the start of the season this was a goal for the distance crew, and this was the first time this group got a chance to run together and they capitalized with a very strong result. Hopefully it will be a sign of more of their season goals to be accomplished this spring.
Chris Frazier, who does so much for the team had the next highest finish on the day with a 4th place in the long jump. Chris also ran a leg on the 6th place 4x200 with Aaron Larkins, Colby Williams, and Ethan Obeng.
With a few injuries and illnesses Ben Ebersole and Michael Kabore had to step up in the 400, and they both came away with life time PRs, both just dipping under 58 seconds.
Trey Jackson was also a big team player trying triple jump for the first time and high jumping for the first time in two years. With some more work look out for Trey in both of these events this outdoor season.
The other event on the night with a double PR was the 3200 as Tyler Schick ran an 11 second PR and Aaron Wyckoff ran a 6 second PR.
Jason Zigmant also had a great run, with a 3 second PR in the 800, breaking 2:10 for the first time.
It is an honor to get to compete with the best team in the state, and Minooka is certainly that and showed it at the SPC Indoor Championship. This meet was a great chance for the guys to see where we stack up as we wind down indoor season and look to outdoors. Next week will be our last indoor meet at Proviso West.
