Lydia Mead, a seventh-grader from St. Louis School in Princeton, landed two medals from the IESA 1A State track and field meet in East Peoria.

Mead placed second in the 400 meters with a time of 1:04.28 in a close finish with the top eight runners. She also ran down a sixth-place finish in the 800 meters (2:33.48)

Her sister, Zoe, a senior at PHS, will be running in both events in the IHSA 2A finals in Charleston this weekend.
