Athletes (left to right and top to bottom): Wiebe, Ross, Hook, Fulcomer, Beaver, Blanton, and Joiner Rockford Christian traveled to Yorkville on Friday, April 12 for the Matt Wulf Invitational. The meet conditions were cold and blustery, but the competition produced some hot times for RCSTF athletes. Oswego East (enrollment 2616) won the 8 team invite with 137 points followed by Thorton Fractional South (enrollment 1880) 104 points, Yorkville (enrollment 1781) 103 points, and Rockford Christian (enrollment 379) 102.5 points. The RC squad won 5 events and set 11 personal bests in the unfavorable weather.   Co-captain Elijah Nitz (Sr.) won both the shot and disc competitions with season bests of 51’ 10” and 151’ 8” respectively. Both marks place him in top ten in the state for 2A competition ( per athletic.net as of 4/13 ).   RC hurdlers placed 1-2 in the 110m race into a stiff head wind. Co-Captain Noah Fulcomer (Sr.) ran 15.88 and pulled his training partner Collin Hook (So.) to a lifetime best of 16.11. Hook’s efforts move him to RCSTF #3 all time in the event.   The 4x200m quartet of Jace Joiner (Sr.), co-captain Riley Wells (Sr.) , Connor Cunningham (Sr.), and co-captain Skyler Blanton (Sr.) dominated the field. Their combined splits totaled to 1:32.45. The mark is currently the fifth fastest in the 2A division. The squad’s time also sits at #6 within team history.  The achievement is made all the more significant because Wells now holds top ten program status in all four relays, having split 10.5 in the 4x100m relay early in the meet. The only other RC athlete to hold that distinction is Josiah Vogel (2018).   Finally, the 4x400m relay of Joiner, Blanton, Nicolas Capriola (Sr.), and Wells won in 3:33.79 to cap off the meet.   Other noteworthy performances included the following: Brent Brunner (Sr.) ran 4:30.03 in the 1600m; Josh Honkamp (Sr.) and Ben Capriola (Fr.) pushed each to personal bests in the 800m; sophomore sprinters Noah Ross and Gage Wiebe had breakout 100m and 200m races, and D’ Artagnon Beaver (So.) ran his first 3200m of the season just four seconds off his lifetime best.   Complete results and be found at https://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/meet/352074/teamscores ...

4x400m Seniors: Capriola, Fulcomer, Volk and Joiner Rockford Christian boys competed in the 14 th University High Indoor at Horton Field House at Illinois State University on Saturday, March 2. The non-scored mega-meet was comprised of nearly 70 teams and 48 schools.  The Royal Lions made the most of the 11 hour death march with 27 personal records, 19 all time program performances, 2 school records, 4 Illinois 2A top ten efforts, and 1 event victory.   Co-captain Elijah Nitz (Sr.) was responsible for the solitary event win in the shot put. Nitz heaved a lifetime best of 49’ 10” a mark that currently ranks him #5 in the 2A classification (per athletic.net as of 2:00 p.m. on 3/3/19). The Royal Lion senior now holds the second best shot put in program history.                             After a disappointing preliminary in the 60m hurdles, Co-captain Noah Fulcomer (Sr.) shattered his own school record clocking 8.72 and finished 2 nd overall all. Fulcomer commented that it was a flawless race. Inspired by his teammate’s performance, Collin Hook (So.) crushed his personal best by half a second running 9.19. His new time moved him to RCSTF #4 all-time. Peter Beaves-Lewis (Sr.) also ran a PR in the prelims.   Super sophomore Davis Hood continued his incredible indoor campaign with his third consecutive improvement in the 60m dash. The 7.37 clocking bumped 8-time all-state and leadoff specialist Jacob Kennay (2018) out of the frosh-soph school record.   In the 400m dash three Royal Lion freshman crossed the finish line with three personal bests. Jonathan Thomas , Zander Ciochetti , and Adison Elliot broke into the RC frosh-soph top ten listing with their marks of 59.04, 1:01.47, and 1:02.07 respectively.   The 4x400m relay closed out the marathon meet with a third place finish. Fulcomer, Andy Volk (Sr.) , Jace Joiner (Sr.) , and Nicolas Capriola (Sr.) all ran personal bests to combine for a time of 3:39.00. Joiner’s efforts were especially inspiring, and his split of 54.4 is a big indoor best. Volk’s split of 53.3 is the tenth fastest ever run indoors by a Royal Lion. The overall team mark rates them #9 in program in history.   Other noteworthy efforts came from co-captain Riley Wells (Sr.) and Brent Brunner (Sr.) in the 1600m. They finished in 4:36.94 and 4:37.12 in third and fourth place out of  87 entrants. The marks are currently the fourth and fifth fastest times posted in 2A thus far.  Co-Captain Skyler Blanton (Sr.) returned to racing in fine fashion after rehabbing an injury for two weeks. Blanton ran a PR of 24.09 – good enough for RCSTF #4 all-time.   Additional RCSTF highlights can be view on the team split sheet here: RCSTF Google Drive ...
