Lindsey Hoffert (Bureau Valley, so.): The Storm’s super soph medaled in the long jump for the second straight year (third with a jump of 17-4 3/4) and qualified for state in the 200 (27.34).

Sydney Lebahn (Bureau Valley, so.): Kept up the family tradition by qualifying for state in the discus (108-9), following her sisters Madison and Jordan.

Zoe Mead (Princeton, jr.): No longer just a distance runner, the PHS junior proved to have fast wheels as well. She led the Honor Roll in the 200 (27.2), 400 (58.59) and 800 (2:17.1). She placed seventh at state in the 800 and qualified in the 400.
