A trio of medalists
CHARLESTON — Three Bureau County athletes brought home state medals from IHSA State Track and Field competition Saturday in Charleston.
Making it to the medal stand in 1A were Bureau Valley sophomore Lindsey Hoffert, who placed third in the long jump, and Kewanee’s Freya Block, a senior from Neponset, who was the State runner-up in both the discus and shot put. In the 2A meet, Princeton junior Zoe Mead placed third in the 800 meters.
Hoffert medaled for the second straight season in the long jump, placing third with a jump of 17-4 3/4. The state runner-up last year, Hoffert managed to outduel Sullivan’s Amanda McLain on her last jump to reclaim third place via the second-best jump tiebreaker.
