Three Things We Know

1. Emma Fisher isn’t locked into one or two events. The York senior figures to double in the distance races when the state series comes around and she will hold her own in what figures to be a deep field of milers and two-milers. At last weekend’s Sue Pariseau Invitational, Fisher blew away the 17-year-old meet record by more than 13 seconds, winning in 10 minutes, 30.80 seconds.

“I wish I had pushed harder in the second half, but I guess I can’t be too disappointed,” said Fisher, who later ran the 400 to get some speed work in.

2. Huntley senior Omo Tseumah hasn’t let the ugly spring weather stop her from consistently dominating in the high jump. Her 5-foot-8 clear at last  week’s McHenry County Meet was the 15th best in the nation this year, according to the Dyestat.com database. She’s 3-for-3 in invitational titles, thanks to previous clears of 5-7 and 5-6. The returning Class 3A state runner-up’s indoor best this year was 5-7.

3. Young didn’t win any relays at the Sue Pariseau Invite, but keep an eye on the Dolphins as the season winds down. They had three seconds and a fourth in the relays, including state top-10 outdoor times in both the 1,600 (4:07.46) and 3,200 (9:40.35).
