DAYLEN HUBBARD, BLOOM HIGH SCHOOL HURDLER BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 9 photos
  • Daylen Hubbard was right there, going hurdle-for-hurdle with Tifonte Hunt across 110 meters final at the Class 3A Homewood-Flossmoor Sectional. The two seniors were the latest example of the century-old rivalry between Bloom Township and Thornton, and the finish line was looming. It was Hubbard, representing Bloom, at the line. Or was it? The finish-line camera proved it was not. Hunt edged Hubbard by one- hundredth of a second with a winning time of 14.28 seconds in a race so competitive, six of the eight finalists advanced to this weekend’s IHSA championship at Eastern Illinois in Charleston. “I knew what I had to do,” Hubbard said. “I knew there were other state finalists (from last year) in the heat. I wasn’t worried. I was supposed to be a state finalist (in 2013) until I was injured. “When I get in the blocks, I try not to think about it, because I’d be scared. It seems like a hundred hurdles. I’m going to get hit or hit one, so I try not to think about my race. Hubbard thought he was the winner until the announcement that Hunt edged him was made. “I thought he won too,” Hunt said. The consolation for Hubbard was in qualifying again for the 3A battle at O’Brien Field. He was seeded 11th last year, but an injured right hip flexor kept him from running his best time in his heat race. He missed the championship race by a third of a second.

SOUTHLAND ATHLETIC CONFERENCE MEET BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 11 photos
  • CHICAGO HEIGHTS | It came down to the little things for Crete-Monee en route to capturing the Southland Conference boys track title on Wednesday night. Sophomore LaVall McNulty won discus with a throw of 141 feet, 11 inches, his career best by 20 feet. The Warriors grabbed first and third place in each hurdle race. Senior Quinten Nash won the 200 meters barely a half-hour after being nipped at the wire by Bloom Township's James Harriel in the 400 "Any team victory tonight was kind of unexpected," Warriors coach Brian O'Donnell said. "On paper, we were supposed to lose by 50 points. But some of our guys stepped upy. I wasn't expecting to win conference." Crete-Monee beat Bloom 170-160, in a two-team runaway. Rich East (78) was a distant third. Last year, Bloom beat Crete-Monee by 67 points. O'Donnell didn't need to be reminded.

CRETE -MONEE GIRLS TRACK INVITATIONAL BY JOHN SMIERCIAK

  • 11 photos
  • CRETE | Track meets aren’t won by 84 points. Not even on a chilly, windy day in late March. Tell that to Bloom Township’s girls team. The Blazing Trojans won the 15th Lady Warrior Invitational by 84 points on Saturday, scoring 165 points to more than double runner-up Rich South’s total of 81. And that was with a disqualification from second place in the 800- meter relay. That would have meant eight more points. The Trojans rolled thanks to depth in sprints, distance and success in the field. Much of it was accomplished by two juniors, Ivory Cassell and Gina Narcisi. Cassell won the 100 in 12.62 seconds, anchored the 400-meter relay to victory, won the triple jump, and came in second in the long jump. Narcisi, eschewing soccer this spring for track to go with her cross country exploits in the fall, scored victories in the 1,600 and 3,200- meter runs. Together, Cassell and Narcisi accounted for 58 points. They and Cassell’s relay teammates would have finished sixth in the competition by themselves, and Bloom would have had enough to win with the rest of its team.

  • SOUTH HOLLAND | Sometimes a close game will wake up a team like a bucket of cold water in the face. That is what No. 2 seed Bloom Township is hoping as it got a wake-up call Tuesday in one semifinal of the Class 4A Thornwood Regional. The Blazing Trojans got it together in the fourth quarter for a 51-36 win against upset-minded Thornwood and play in Friday's title game against the winner of tonight's Lincoln-Way North-Minooka game.
