York Starts Fast

Joe Newton's York Dukes wasted no time blowing away the field on Saturday at the Lake Park Class 3-A boys Regional in Roselle. York went 1-2-3-4-9-10-11 with Steve Sulkin, Jorden Hebert, Jack Driggs and Adam Ceal leading the sweep. Fenwick showed the way in equal fashion at Oak Park with its own 1-4 finish of Martin Grady, Tom Laser, Jack Boyle and William Toohey. At Aurora West, Geneva went 2-3-4-5-7; at Loyola, the host Ramblers went 1-3-4 and at Naperville North, the Huskies and Neuqua Valley went 1-2 in a tough field. And how about this on the girls side? York went 2-3-4-5-6 at Roselle, but its top runner, Meghan Frigo, lost by 1 minute, 12 seconds to Lake Park's Lindsay Flanagan. There were plenty of other top performancs, but there is a long way to go with sectionals next week and the state meet in Peoria on Nov. 8.

The 1:12 margin of victory is deceptive as York was content to run as a pack (as evidenced by their excellent 19 second 1-5 spread). However I agree that Flanagan is one of the top runners in the state and should contend for the 3A title.
