IHSA track and field state-bound Hononegah girls


The Hononegah girls track team placed another tremendous group of young athletes into the state finals on May 16-May 18, 2024 on the campus of Eastern Illinois at O’Brien Field.

Honos 4 x 4 team ran a season best 4:01.47 and took home first place, beating second place Huntley by over 2 seconds. The members are Sophia Hedges, Jordan Dimke, Lauren Frake, and Kylie Simpson. The Indians also had the 4 x 8 squad qualify for state by running a 9:38.81.

Jordan Dimke also is making state in the high jump and 300 hurdles. Dimke high jumped 5’5.75 to again qualify for the IHSA 3A state finals. Jordan ran a 46.60 to qualify for state. The sophomore has gone to state in each of her two years of high school and was part of the NIC-10 championship basketball team.

A couple of Indians long jumped to state yesterday at Huntley. Senior Sophia Hedges jumped 18’ 1.75” and junior Kali Schleis produced a jump of 17’ 19.75”

Senior Amelia Bronnimann is heading to state in pole vaulting by jumping 9’ 9” - that’s just a few inches short of the school record.

The Indian team finished third with 66 points. They were behind Huntley with 148 points and second place Guilford with 77 points.
