It wasn't just a school record. It wasn't just a state championship. When Brooke Probst, our girls' track athlete of the year, won her high jump title last month, it was history - the first state championship in Indian Creek history.
The DeKalb girls track team qualified both of its relay teams on Friday for the finals of the Class 3A Championships in Charleston. The finals in all three classes will be held Saturday. Kaneland and Sycamore each had an entry qualify for the 2A finals.
A couple of breaks one way or the other and Kaneland’s Olivia Rohlman and Indian Creek’s Brooke Probst can be coming home from Charleston as state champs. And if things play out according to seeding, Kaneland’s Jessica Phillipp come back as a state champ.
Athletes from Yorkville Christian, Reed-Custer, Timothy Christian, IC Catholic, Hinckley Big Rock, Newark, Seneca, Wilmington and Somonauk competed in the Class 1A sectional girls track meet on Thursday, May 12, 2022 in Seneca.
Traveling quite a distance to the Class 1A Bureau Valley Sectional on Wednesday, the Indian Creek Timberwolves made the most of their track and field trek with a fourth-place finish and five state qualifiers.
