On Saturday, April 11th, both Michaela Hackbarth (So) and Abby Kargol (Sr) raced against many of the nations best high school distance runners at the Arcadia Invitational. Michaela took the track in the heat of the early afternoon California sun to compete in the 800m run. She finished 6th in her heat, with a great time of 2:14.01 which currently sits as the #1 time in Illinois and the #40 time in the United States. Seven hours later, under the lights, Abby had her turn on the track to race the 3200m run. Abby ran a fantastic race, bettering her own school record by 5 seconds with a finishing time of 10:45.53. Her time is currently the #2 time in Illinois and #50 in the United States. Both girls join back with the rest of their teammates at this Friday’s Wheaton North Invitational.
