Congratulations to the BOYS Track Team for their usual strong performance.    They traveled to Gillespie yesterday for the 1A SECTIONAL Track Meet and pulled off some miraculous feats.  The LuHi 4x100M relay team (Marshawn M., Justin K., Caleb S., and Jay M.) ran one of their best relays of the year.  Jay showed once again he is a top sprinter in Central Illinois with a couple of strong finishes in the 100M and the 200M dashes.   Jay, you are a gallant runner. Justin has taken on a new event this past season in the 400M dash. At sectionals, he turned in one of his best performances of the year.  Way to go Justin. Last but not least, was the strong discus performance by Senior Garrett D. Despite the mud, holes, and 30 MPH wind gusts throughout the competition, in the last throw of his high school career, Garrett threw a school record breaking discus toss of 131 feet 7 inches to eclipse the old mark of 131 feet 3 1/4 inches set in 1994 by Jon Benning.     

Congratulations to all of you young men for a fabulous SECTIONAL meet and a great track season.

All over the world this Sunday, multitudes will gather in churches, homes, and other places to celebrate the mothers in their lives.  It is a time of recognizing the many mother figures in your life: birth mothers, step-mothers, mothers-in-laws, grandmothers, spiritual mentoring mothers.  As Christians, we look to the Fifth Commandment, the first commandment with a promise, to see that we begin with honoring our fathers and our mothers. But that promise, as St. Paul says, tells us that we should honor our mothers (and fathers) that it may be well with us and that we may live a long life.

While we celebrate this day once a year, on a Sunday in May, we are to honor our mothers everyday.  So, this Sunday, remember that special person in your life, and hold her, and all mothers, in high esteem and honor.

The soccer team played Athens on Friday and if you missed the game, you missed an excellent finish. The score was tied 0-0 through regulation. The first overtime was still not enough, so it went into a second OT.  With only only 18 seconds left to play, Athens cleared the ball out and Bailey W. won a 50/50 ball sending it into the 18 where she found a running Cara A. Cara won another 50/50 ball versus a charging keeper and headed the ball into the back of the net as time expired for a 1-0 victory! Great job team and way to play hard to the very last second!!
