IESA Class A State Track & Field Summary--Erie Takes Home Team Titles in 7th Grade Girls and Boys

Class A Track & Field

Despite some of the worst weather conditions of an already brutal spring weather season, the IESA Class A state track and field meet was held Friday and Saturday at the EastSide Centre in East Peoria. Because of the weather and the rain, the 8th grade boys and girls pole vault event will be held on Monday, May 16. The complete individual results for all events are posted on the IEA website www.iesa.org. Team results for 7th grade are listed in this summary and the 8th grade team results will be posted after the conclusion of the pole vault event on Monday. The 7th grade competition is complete through all 14 events. Here is a brief summary on each of the 4 classes:

7th Grade Girls
Team Champion Erie 51.5 points

Third Place Kewanee Wethersfield 32 points

Three records were set: Alexis Pierre-Antoine of Evergreen Park St. Bernadette set a record in the 100 meter hurdle when she ran 15.67 in the preliminaries. The old record was held by Jennifer Monk of Bloomington Holy Trinity who ran a 15.93 in 2004. Pierre-Antoine bettered her mark in the semi-finals by .01 when she ran 15.66. That record stood for about 24 hours as she then lowered her own record in the finals when she scorched the field en route to first place in a time of 15.38.

The 7th grade girls pole vault record fell when Lindsey Brown from Kewanee Wethersfield cleared 9'4.25". The old record was held by Emily Clay from Bloomington Cornerstone Academy at 9' 4".

The third 7th grade girls record that fell was in the long jump. Jenny Kimbro from Catlin now has the record with a jump of 16' 7.75". The old record was held by Dawn Kernich from Carlinville who jumped 16'3.5" in 2002.
