St. Charles East, Neuqua Valley win UEC crowns
May 8, 2015 3:20 AM -
St. Charles East needed every point it could muster from its defending state champion 1,600-meter relay team at the Upstate Eight Conference girls track and field championships at Memorial Field in Elgin on Thursday. The Saints trailed until midway through the second leg. That's when sophomore Casey McNichols kicked into high gear and took the lead on the far turn. St. Charles East never looked back as Kathleen Strohaker and Elizabeth Chmelik finished off what teammate Keely Flanagan started: a victory in the meet's final race over second place Batavia.
