For the first time in history, Eastbrook sent three participants to the Boys State Track and Field Championships. Seniors Zach Burton, Eric Mason and Josh Neideck made the trip to Indiana University in Bloomington after qualifying the previous week based on their performances in Regional competition.
Burton followed up his 3rd place finish at Regional with a solid performance in the 110-meter high hurdles, finishing 25th in the state. Mason, who was the Regional runner-up in the discus, finished 17th in the state in his first trip to the Championships. Neideck, making his fourth consecutive appearance in the State Finals, qualified in the 800-meter run as the Regional Champion. He earned his first State medal and All-State honors with a 3rd place finish in a school record time of 1:53.9.
Congratulations to all three seniors and to coach Stu Goble on these tremendous accomplishments.
