Local Athletes in Charleston for State MeetThe 2A State Track and Field Meet gets underway today at
Eastern Illinois University.
Two Salem Wildcats and a Centralia Orphan are among the
athletes competing for a state title.
Tyler Jourdan won the pole vault last week at the Salem
Sectional, clearing fifteen feet. That guaranteed the Salem junior a spot at
the state meet.
Jourdan will be joined by recent Salem graduate Matt Hahn,
who qualified in both the discus and the shot put. Hahn’s toss of 153’ 5” was
good for third place last Thursday. Hahn placed fourth in the shot at 51’ 2 ½”
to qualify in that event.
Centralia’s Rashad Campbell placed third in the shot
put with a mark of 55’9” and was the lone Orphan to qualify for the state meet.
