Thursday’s Varsity Results
Boys Track and Field
Stevenson at IHSA Class 3A Buffalo Grove Sectional: Three school records fell, and seven Patriots qualified for state, as SHS tied for third behind Fremd and Barrington. Ki Hwan Kim broke the school record in the long jump 22-10.5, a foot better than the previous best, and earned his third straight state berth. This is the first time he has qualified in long jump; in 2012 and 2011 he was part of relays that went to state. Another record was broken by the 3,200 relay team of Brendan Wood, Danny Gardiner, Jared Borowsky and Sammy Oh, which had a second-place time of 7:51.02 that eclipsed the old mark by more than 4 seconds. Borowsky broke his own freshman record in the 1,600 with a time of 4:21.73. Stevenson also had two qualifiers in the weight events. Jordan Fobbe qualified in the shot put and discus. He had a second-place throw of 53 feet, 8 inches in the shot put, which was nearly 7 feet farther than his previous best. He also finished fourth in discus with a throw of 155-3. Joining Fobbe in discus will be Michael Dolan, who finished third with an effort of 163 feet. Dolan qualified for state in discus last year. Gardiner also is making a return trip to Charleston. He was part of the 800 relay unit that made state in 2012. – Daily Herald |Pioneer Press | official results
