April 12


L to R: Coach Trewartha, Mikayla Chambers, Coach Thompson, Coach Lane, and Graham Meister

We had 2 freshmen, Mikayla Chambers (400m) and Graham Meister (shot put) who had outstanding performances April 12 as they set new meet and school records. However, they are just the tip of the iceberg. Overall, the Trojans had 18 season or personal bests as our athletes continues to show improvement in every meet (there were 40 bests on a Tuesday meet). The boys finished 6th and the girls ended in 7th place. Half of the teams finishing ahead of our squads were much larger schools who compete as 2A schools. GREAT NIGHT FOR THE TROJANS!

April 5

In our first outdoor and home track meet, the Trojans put on a strong performance. The team while being young and a little inexperienced, the athletes continue to learn about their events and show improvement.

March 22

The Trojans competed in the Illinois Prep Top Times meet on Friday at Illinois Wesleyan University. This was our first meet against only Class A competition. The coaches turn in their athletes performances and the best are invited to compete. While some athletes choose not to enter, most of Class A’s best do show up. The performances of our Trojan athletes was quite outstanding. It was a successful meets for all 5 of our competitors with 2 personal bests and the other 3 efforts were close to their bests. CONGRATULATIONS to Izzy, Mikayla, Graham, Tristan, and Tyler!

The Dwight Township High School Trojan boy’s track team competed in the Cogdal HS Invite on Saturday, March 2 with very good results.
The competition was strong as in all events there were schools with much larger enrollments which did not deter our athletes from doing their best. Five Trojans recorded personal bests: Joe Duffy (60m), Mckay Gleeson (200m), Tyler Gubbins (400m), Tristan Chambers (800m), and Graham Meister (shot put).
The meet was a big learning experience for the team and the coaches are expecting much improvement as the season goes on.
