(Bloomington), Zach Bradford (Chicago Whitney Young), and Amira Young Dylan Jacobs (Sandburg) were a few names that lit things up for the class of 2018. Props to John Meyer (Lockport) for his all-time record breaking efforts in the shot put.
Normally we spend this time to congratulate those who win awards or set records, but that's easy and sometimes it misses the scope of our mission. The 2017-2018 school year was tremendous as most of them are, but this latest class exhibited so much delight and fortitude like no other. With that being said, MileSplit Illinois would like to acknowledge every graduating senior regardless if they are going on play college sports or not. For those that signed college letters of intent and plan on competing at the next level, we wish you well in your endeavors... a special thank you and goodbye to our graduating interns
Rachel Hickey (Lasalle-Peru) and Katelyn Hutchison (Chicago Payton). -Last class of 2018 college signings-
