The Lyons Township girls soccer team had a bid for the program's first state title end Saturday night with a 1-0 loss to O'Fallon in the Class 3A state title – the Lions' only loss of the season. But Elli Kosanovich and the Lions chose to celebrate their achievements afterward. "Instead of putting my head down, I wanted to enjoy the moment."

Hinsdale Central sophomore Daniel Watcke added to a stellar family running legacy Saturday, winning the 800-meter state championship and later anchoring the Red Devils' winning 1,600-meter relay in Charleston. Other area medalists included Morton's Victor Rodriguez, second in the pole vault, and Wheaton Warrenville South's Reece Young, who was third in the 200 and fifth in the 100.

Teams and athletes from across Illinois competed in the Class 3A Boys Track and Field State Meet on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.
