Tevin Hopkins of Minooka was bumped off the track during his section of the Meter Dash and landed in the Long Jump pit. Lane Tech finished third in the race. It came down to a photo finish to determine that Schrobilgen was the winner by five hundredths of a second.
But the craziest outcome happened during the last event of the evening the Boys Meter Relay. At the finish, it was Thornwood winning, St. Charles East second, Minooka third, and Waubonsie Valley fourth. But that was before all the discussions began between all of the officials. Flags were flying during this race meaning that someone was going to get disqualified.

It was determined that both Minooka and Thornwood were disqualified. Both camps were dismayed and thought that the calls were not correct.
I know it has been a few days and probably everyone had calmed down about this. I had a chance to look at two videos of the race. There we could see infraction 1 that Minooka committed.
Officials determined that the Minooka lead off runner cut in too early after the first lap. Looking at the video, it shows that Minooka cut from their position in lane 6 and moved into lane 5 just before the cut-in cones.
The second infraction was on the Thornwood team. From the video that I shot, since this happened at the other end of the track, you could really not see what happened. All you could see is some commotion on the one end but nothing else.
Watch the Video here. Another video was brought to my attention on Wednesday. It was shot from the back stretch and could see all of the action of the second infraction. In that, you can see Minooka had position in lane one, Waubonsie Valley was trying to pass on the outside, and Thornwood was behind Minooka. The Minooka runner started to move on the outside heading into the turn. Thornwood saw that opportunity and tried to pass on the inside. Problem was, Minooka sensed it and closed the hole.
It forced Thornwood off the track where they ran more than 3 steps off the track.WI State Track 2013
When they tried to get back in, there were physical actions going on between the two squads. I think the right call was made on this. Watch the video here. I do not think I have seen Heinz miss so much in this event. I am not trying to take anything away from Spejcher by no means. The Lake Park jumper was hitting his mark and made his clearances look effortless.
It will be fun to watch these two compete again. The next time they will meet is in May at the State Meet. Watch the interview with Kevin Spejcher here.
He was the 1 seeded jumper coming into the event with a seasonal best of The next closest jumper had a season best of In all reality, he could have entered the competition at that height.
Instead, he came in at That is pretty early for an elite jumper like that. Even his coach Steve Spears agreed. But with all the attempts that he took at lower heights, would he have been able to clear His reasoning made sense. He only cleared at that meet. That is why I came in early.
That can tighten up your legs. Watch the interview with Kyle Landon here. He thanked me for what I wrote in the preview about him for the meet. The problem was that he did not have a good night by his standards.
