Twice is nice
VALPARAISO — In his first three years, Jacob Corbett couldn’t break through the wall that is advancing to the boys track state meet.
With a little boost from some Swedish Fish candy, the New Prairie senior finally punched his ticket to the state finals two-fold after winning the 1,600 and 3,200 meters at Thursday’s Valparaiso Regional.
“I felt good in the mile and was a little iffy about halfway through the two-mile and I pulled that out of nowhere, that was tough,” Corbett said. “I had some Swedish Fish for sugar after the mile and that restored my energy a little bit. Swedish Fish all the way, man.”
