For the first time since 1994, the Titans have qualified as a team for the IHSA State Meet!

After a fiery speech from Tim Casey (’95), alumni of the previous State team of 1994, the Titans were off to work.

Will Kelly (Sr) absolutely crushed the muddy Busse Woods course finishing in 9th place with All-Sectionals Honors.

Will Houser (Sr) and Brian Hiltebrand (So) both ran some of the best races they’ve ever ran, despite the conditions. Both finished in the Top 25, with Will finishing 17th and Brian finishing 24th.

James Kurtzweil (Sr) and Jayson Stamm (So) rounded out the Top 5 with 46th and 88th place respectively, leading to a point total of 166 for the Titans.

Mrugesh Thakor (Jr) and Matthew Finkel (Jr) also ran amazing races finishing together at 111th and 112th place.

Aside from the racing, this was an amazing experience for all the athletes. The support from the parents, family, alumni, athletes, and classmates was amazing and it was awesome being able to celebrate with you all.

See you in Peoria next Saturday!
