The OHS track teams competed in their 2nd meet of the season yesterday at the U of I Armory. The highly competitive meet boasted 34 class 1A, 2A, and 3A teams from all over the state. The boys' team tallied an impressive 22 season PRs (personal records) throughout the day. Seven freshmen showed glimpses of a bright future for Spartan track & field, posting season-best performances in the following events: CJ Moore in the 800 and 1600, Wyatt Reinhart in the 800 and 400, Evan Petri in the 1600, Tyler Gellner and Bobby Fairbury in the 200, Dylan Nowaskie in the high jump, and Cohen Maness in the shot put. Sophomore Chase Ragar picked right up where he left off at the end of last year with an eye-opening 37'4" leap in the triple jump. Other sophomore PRs came from Cooper Phillips in the 400 and Cohen Alexander in the 60 and the 200(15th out of 65 runners). Top junior performances came from Jacob Lawless(slashing over 8 seconds from his 800 time and over 10 seconds in his 400 time), Caden Clark in the 800 and 1600, Logan Demling in the 400, Rylan Peifer in the 200, Nolan Yeary in the shot put(season-best by over 2 feet and placed 12th out of 77 throwers), and Keagan Uphoff(placed 3rd out of 44 in the 60 hurdles and 2nd out of 41 in the high jump). Senior PRs came from Logan Farquhar in the 400 and Reygan Sitton in the 60 dash(all-time best of 7.31 placing 9th out of 75 runners). Great job guys! We will be back in action on Thursday at the Wesleyan indoor facility and back to the U of I Armory on Saturday. Stay tuned for more great news!

Seventh grade students researched and developed bills they would like to become federal laws through a Mock Congress Simulation. Students wrote their bills, tried to persuade the class to vote, and now they are introducing and debating their bills on the House of Representatives floor. If their bills pass, they will be presented to the President (Mr. Jones) and signed into law.
