About this Article

Burlington Central's Lucas Ege looks smooth as silk running hurdles. His technique and foot speed helped settle an old score. As a freshman Ege had faced Kaneland all-state hurdler Dylan Nauert several times and beat him once, in the 110-meter race at last year's Class 2A Rochelle sectional. Ege got him twice Saturday at Kaneland's own Peterson Prep Invitational in Maple Park, once in Nauert's trademark 300 hurdles. In that race, Ege dramatically lowered his personal-best to 40.45 seconds from 42.9. Coming from the pack into the final 100, Ege remained focused even as another runner banged into a hurdle.
