|Cahokia Takes 3rd Boys Track and Field State Title
|CHARLESTON, Ill. (AP) -- Cahokia has taken its third straight team title in the IHSA boys track and field state championships.
The Comanches had finalists in 13 of 18 events at Eastern Illinois University's rainy O'Brien Field on Saturday. Finalists included all four relays, and Cahokia just missed being the first team to score 100 points in the meet.
The Comanches "settled" for 99.50 after a dropped handoff in the 800 meter relay relegated them to last in that event.
East St. Louis was second in Class 2A with 40 points. Roselle Lake Park won Class 3A.
