Track Teams Excel at Sectionals!

The Hawthorn North Boys and Girls Track teams competed in the 2015 IESA Sectional Track & Field Meet at Zion Benton High School this past Saturday 5/16.  All teams did quite well.  For once Mother Nature was on our side.  The rain stayed away and we had warm temperatures.  Hawthorn North is proud and honored be sending 11 State Qualifiers in 8 different events to the IESA State Track & Field Meet in Peoria at the East Side Centre on Friday, May 22nd & Saturday, May 23rd.  In addition, many Hawthorn North athletes turned in season and personal best performances.  We are very proud of all four of the Hawthorn North Track squads.
