The PLT and Erie Middle School track teams had quite a weekend in East Peoria at the IESA State Track Meet.  The Erie 8th grade boys brought home a second-place team trophy and combined, the groups crowned four state champions.


Erie's champions included Parker Holldorf in the 7th grade pole vault, 8th grader Kolby Franks in the the high jump, and Kaiden Jacobs taking the 8th grade pole vault.  PLT 7th grader Jaiden Oleson took the title in the discus.


Despite two rain delays on Saturday the weekend was a tremendous experience for the athletes.  Congratulations to the teams and the coaches.
