ROCHELLE — It had snowed early Saturday morning, canceling every sporting event at Rochelle Township High School except for the Hub Relays. Rochelle battled the elements and took fifth place out of eight teams.

The Hub Relays is a unique track meet in the fact that all of the track events are different types of relay races. The field events are also scored differently, with the three best marks added together to determine a team place.

Leading Rochelle with its only first place victory of the day was Tony Walsh, Austin Walter, Jaycee Benson and Evan White as they handily defeated their opponents in the 400-meter relay in 0:45.63 and scoring 10 of Rochelle’s 68 points.

Senior Chris Weber won the high jump with a jump of 6’1.” More importantly, it was enough to compliment 5’3” jumps by Tim Monfils and Tariq Thomas to take second overall in the event and scoring eight team points.
