This picture by our assistant coach Steven Bugarin is worth more than a whole lot of words.
It is Sunday morning, and I’m still processing yesterday’s great day.
Blog post to follow at some point. But for now, just the news: Saint Ignatius senior co-captain Jack Keelan won the IHSA 3A cross country state individual championship yesterday. His time of 14 minutes and 5 seconds was the tenth fastest time in state meet history. Keelan becomes the second Ignatius runner to win the state meet, and his 14:05 sets a new school record, breaking the record of 14:24.3 set by Mike Patton in his 1980 state championship run.
Junior Chris Korabik also had a great day, running 15:08 for 57th place and almost a 30-second Detweiller personal best.
