Eaton placed ninth in the IHSAA boys' state meet in the 1,600 meters in a time of 4 minutes, 18.30 seconds. Earlier in the season, he was runner-up at both the sectional and regional in the 1,600. Eaton also was the 1,600 champion at the Conference Indiana meet.
Krempel qualified for the girls' state meet in two events, placing ninth in the discus at 137 feet, 5 inches and 25th in the shot put in 34-6. At the sectional, she won both events with respective marks of 132-6 and 41-0. At the regional, she was second in the discus at 137-7 and second in shot at 40-7. At the CI meet, she won both with efforts of 145-4 and 41-4.
Krempel's discus mark at the CI meet was a school record, and she also set a school record of 42-10 1/2 in the shot put at the Columbus North Invitational.
Others receiving special recognition at the track teams' season-ending gathering were seniors Chris Sublette and Mackenzie Caldwell, the Bull Dog Award winners for the two teams.
