Minooka boys track team excels at Mustang Relays
On Monday night at the 11th annual Mustang Relays Indoor Track Meet, the Minooka boys track team had several outstanding efforts.
The Indians’ 4x200 meter relay team was third (1:32.93), the 4x400 relay team was fourth (3:27.59) and the 4x800 relay team was 16th (8:21.81), but that was not the least of it.
“Chris Wilson debuted with two outstanding splits after being out two and a half weeks without practice due to a foot injury suffered in PE,” Minooka coach Nick Lundin said.
Wilson ran a 2:01 split in the 800 and a 49.5 split in the 4x4.
“He looks to be in great shape and will be one to watch this season,” Lundin said.
In addition to Wilson, Jake Smith was coming back from an injury suffered during basketball season.
“Jake returned to action in the 4x200 and was key in the team earning third place,” Lundin said.
