Comfortably, Lakes thrives at Flyin' Hawk
Apr 18, 2015 10:34 PM - There is a reason Lakes' boys track team steps out of its comfort zone to compete in meets like the Flyin' Hawk Invite hosted by Bartlett at Millennium Field in Streamwood on Saturday. The better the competition, the greater the reward -- at least, that's what the Eagles hope for by season's end, at the Class 3A state meet. "We make the hour-plus drive to meets like this and to Prospect later in the season to prepare ourselves for the great competition we will see at state," Lakes coach Kurt Rowells said. "The kids rise to the occasion and love the competition." For the second time in three years, Lakes loved the Millennium confines. The Eagles amassed 108 points to win the team title. Defending meet champion Schaumburg ran fourth (58 points) and Hersey ran fifth (57 points).
