CARBONDALE -- The Rock Island High School girls' track team continued to show it will be a force to contend with this spring. After easily winning the Quad City Indoors Meet this past week, the Rocks went to a meet at Southern Illinois University on Friday and came away with three stellar performances.|
Senior sprinter Mystique Thompson ran a 7.69 in the 60-meter dash for a national elite (top 40 in the nation) time; Thompson also ran on the 4x200 relay team with fellow senior Lacresha Linton, junior Cynthia Myers-Miles and sophomore Hannah Willhite to run a national elite time of 1:43.32.
Willhite jumped 36-feet, 7-inches in the triple jump for the state's top indoor ranking.
The Rocks also ran in a meet at Illinois Wesleyan University on Saturday and won the team title.
