Lucas Ege played a part in winning four events for the Rockets. He doubled up in the hurdle races and ran on two winning relay teams.

With a strong showing in the field events, Marmion Academy finished third overall with 90 points. The Cadets just edged out the host Red Raiders, whose 88 points were good enough for fourth. Grayslake North (49), Hampshire (22) and Larkin (19) took the next three spots.

"I wasn't really expecting to get four events," said Ege. "I worked pretty hard for it. In the 300 and 110 (hurdles), I was pretty locked on.

"In the 110 I kind of messed up my knee a little bit going through it and that hurt me in the 300. But in the 300 I did pretty well; I killed myself at the end."

Huntley's Brennan Bell finished second to Ege in both hurdle races.

Isaac Jimenez in the discus and Connor Boos in the 200 were individual winners for the Raiders. Boos also took third in the 100.

David Abedije won the triple jump, giving Central its only win in the field events, although Sean Kisch was a close second in the pole vault. Kyle Neubauer, second in the 800 meters, and Casey Matthews, third in both the 200 and 400, also scored points for the Rockets.

Marmion scored most of its points in the field events. Isaiah Brown in the long jump, Tyler Maryanski in the high jump, and Jake Cornish in the pole vault won their respective events, and Oscar Garza took second in the shot put.

"The Marmion boys have great work ethic and they come to compete," said Cadets coach Dan Thorpe. "Unfortunately, we just don't have the speed that some of these larger schools have."

Larkin showed its depth by winning the 800 and 1,600 relays, but couldn't capture an individual event.

Grayslake North was strong in the sprints, with Titus Booker (10.6 seconds) winning the 100 and Alex Shulga capturing the 400.
