Tony’s Take: A Final Look At One Of The Great Boys State Finals Jun 02, 2015

The 121st Annual Boys Track and Field State Championship had to be among the most anticipated meets in a very long time. Coming into the meet there were a lot of compelling questions that had to be answered. Among them were: 1) Could Kahmari Montgomery (Sr., Plainfield Central) win the rarely achieved " sprint triple crown" of track and field which entails 100-200-400; 2) Cahokia would be going for a historic fifth 2A title in a row. But are they really the best overall team in Illinois; 3) Jesse Reiser (Sr., McHenry) proved that he was the king of Illinois distance running over the past full season; 4) Who would come on late and surprise the Illinois track and field world; 5) Josh Eiker (Sr., Galesburg) is a great sprinter in his own right. He wants a piece of the sprint accolades as well. Can he upstage Montgomery?

Nothing is guaranteed and everything must be earned. With that being said it appears as though Tolono (Unity) is the team to beat. The Rockets have a ton of arsenal to complement their name sake. The outlook for their relays and individual players seem unstoppable. The Illinois Top Times Indoor meet gave us some insight on who to look out for as the outdoor season calendar turned May and eventually into the post-season.
