Courier News’ three things to know

SHARE Courier News’ three things to know

Dundee-Crown sprinters ruled at Geneva. Milik Dunner and Austin White were the unquestioned stars at Geneva last weekend. Dunner captured the 100-meter dash — with Austin two spots behind him — in 11.16 seconds. But Austin returned the favor in the 200, leading a Charger sweep with his championship effort of 22.54 seconds. Dunner was slightly more than a tenth of a second away to finish runner-up.

Jacobs’ Josh Walker emerges. Walker also laid claims for sprinting legitimacy in the area with his performance last week at the Naperville North Gus Scott meet. The Jacobs’ junior augmented his runner-up finish in the 100 (11.18 seconds) by claiming the title in the open 200 with a 22.4-second showing.

O’Connor shines. Burlington Central captured its first title in 13 attempts at last week’s Geneva Van Deveer meet as Matt O’Connor ran a blistering anchor leg in the meet-closing 1,600 relay to help the Rockets surge past the host Vikings. The Rockets are legitimate state-title contenders in Class 2A in the event with their 3:26.92 posting. O’Connor also lowered his season-best in the open 800 with a winning effort of 1:57.48.
