All roads led to Charleston and the IHSA State Track finals for the Bureau Valley Storm and other area girls. The Storm landed three medals in relays and another by Athlete of the Year Lindsey Hoffert in the long jump. Princeton senior Zoe Mead medaled in the 800 meters and qualified in the 400 meters. Here’s a rundown of this year’s Honor Roll leaders.

(Bureau Valley • Jr.)

Placing for state in four events, the BV junior was back in stride after battling injuries last year. Hoffert placed fifth in the 1A long jump, leading the area with a jump of 17 feet, 9 1/4 inches. She also ran on the Storm’s relays which medaled in the 4x100, the 4x200 and 4x400.

Laura Rieker

(Amboy/LaMoille • Sr.)
