Post season action
Two area athletes are headed to the IHSAA Boys State Track and Field Championships after performances in the Bloomington North Regional. Madison's Daunte O'Banion won the 400 dash with a school-record time of 48.44. That time represents the 4th-fastest in the state. Southwestern's Mitchell Cline placed 4th in the 400 dash in 49.80, a time that should qualify him for the state finals.
Madison as a team finished 11th and Southwestern 14th. State Finals will be held next Friday at Indiana University.
Hanover College Senior, Erin Trimpe, cleared 3.65m to tie for the 16th-best mark at the NCAA Division III National Championships.
