Starting the Season with a Win

The Titans got their first win of the year at the third annual Titan Indoor Relays against Glenbrook North, Fenton, Elmwood Park, Mundelein, and West Chicago.

The day started out with the 4x800m relays, where both a Frosh/Soph and Varsity team competed. The Frosh/Soph team (Houser, Penne, Zimmer, Wittenstein) started the day off with a win running a 9:12.70, the best time in the three year history of the meet. Following them was the Varsity team (Houser, Hiltebrand, Jerva, Slutzky). In Brian Hiltebrand’s first meet back from the basketball season, he ran a 2:08.8. Will Houser set the indoor 800m split record at 1:59.3 during that race. Had it not been a relay, it would have been both the Fieldhouse Record as well as the Varsity Indoor record.

In the Class 400m Relay, Freshmen James Hiltebrand and Sophomore Elie Nassif represented the Titan Distance team finishing at 62.4 and 61.4 respectively.

The 4x1600m team ran a combined four miles in 19:19.0. The team consisting of Will Kelly, Mrugesh Thakor, James Kurtzweil, and Jayson Stamm all ran splits below five minutes at 4:48.7, 4:44.5, 4:47.6, and 4:59.2 respectively.

In the Distance Medley Relay, after an official mistake between the exchange of the 1200m and the 400m, the team ran a combined 12:01.1.

Finally, in the 4x400m relay, Will Houser and Michael Jerva represented the Distance team running 53.4 and 56.8 splits respectively.


The Titans compete next at home on THURSDAY against Glenbrook North, Highland Park, Conant, Ogden International Prep School. This is the only home meet that contains the 3200m run before Conference!
