The Hebron Boys Track team made a good showing at the Valparaiso Regional on May 23rd.
Congratulations to the 3200m Relay team of Connor Nuest, Taylor Wiegman, Nick Christ, and Jacob Stewart for finishing 5th. There are around 60 teams in Northwest Indiana that feed into the Valpo Regional and many of those are 3A and 4A schools, so 5th place was awesome. Unfortunately, the top 3 places go to the State Meet, so we missed it by 2 places. The 4 teams that finished ahead of us were Chesterton, Valparaiso, Merrillville, and Laporte. The schools behind us were Andrean, Hobart, Lowell, East Chicago, Crown Point, Munster, West Side, Portage,……….so we felt great about our finish. The time of 8:21.97 was the second fastest in school history. Taylor Wiegman also ran the 400m dash with a time of 53.35 for 12th place and Connor Nuest ran the mile for 14th place.
The team finished with an overall record of 8-2 with a 5-2 record in the PCC – good for 2nd place. They also finished 3rd at the PCC Meet and 5th at the Sectional. Great Job Guys!
