Advancing to the State Finals was the Regional Runnerup 4 x 400 M Relay team of John Driscoll, Sean Gibson, Pat Driscoll, and Jacob Moon in a season best time of 3:24.3. This is the 4th time in 5 years the St. Joe boys 4 x 4 will run in the State Championship and its the 7th appearance in the last 15 years.
Near misses in qualifying came from the 4 x 800 M Relay of Pat Driscoll, Joe Deahl, Bill Powers, and Josh Juday who ran a season best 8:08 and narrowly missed winning the event. Mark Hiestand had a PR throw of 50′ 10 in the Shot Put to place 4th as well. Bill Powers gave a strategic 3200 M Run that resulted in a season best time of 9:59 and 5th place finish. John Driscoll earned a spot in the 200 M Finals and finished 6th in 22.90. Finally, Freshman Alex Garcia gained valuable Regional experience in the 1600 M Run with a time of 5:00.35.
The boys team finished 8th in the 48 team Regional field.
