BOYS TRACK & FIELD
IHSA Class 1A Watseka Sectional (Friday)
Seventeen individuals are headed to this weekend’s IHSA State Finals in 22 events, while seven relay teams from the area also advanced past Friday’s sectional round.
A pair of throwers — Watseka’s Rusty Kuhlmann and Central’s Kodie Willis — each advanced in both the shot put and discus. Kuhlmann won both events, throwing 52-feet-3.75 in the shot put and 148-feet-1 in the discus. Willis was the runner-up on both occasions, throwing 47-feet-6 in the shot put and 142-feet-1 in the discus.
Each athlete will be joined by plenty of peers at state. Central won as a team, and aside from Willis, will send five individuals and all four of their relay teams to this weekend’s finals.
