High School Track: Lyons’ Dickman medals at state; Marist boys enjoy big week

By Jeff Vorva
Correspondent

Postseason track was hot and heavy in the Southwest Regional News area as girls completed the state competition and the boys were battling it out at sectionals and sending an army of competitors this this week’s state meet.

A breakdown:

GIRLS STATE
In Class 3A, Lyons’ Katie Dickman finished in third place in the 1600-meter run, with a time of 4 minutes, 42.55 second, which would have been a state record.

But Normal Community freshman Ali Ince broke the record with a 4:40.85 and Oak Park’s Josephine Welin was runnerup with a 4:42.55.

The previous record was held by Woodstock’s Kayla Beattie, who ran a 4:43.65 in 2011.

The race was held June 12 at Eastern Illinois University after two long weather delays pushed the event back.

Dickman, Rebecca Phillips, Lillie George and Abby Deuter finished eighth in the 1600 relay with a 4:02.77.

Stagg’s Shannon Lawler finished sixth in the 100 hurdles with a time of :14.99 and added a 10th-place showing in the 300 hurdles with a :46.62.

Shepard’s Kayden Porter took 10th in the shot put with a throw of 37 feet, 9.25 inches.
