STERLING — Evan White didn’t qualify for state in the long jump like he did last year, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be heading down to Charleston with Chris Weber and Dakota Swadinsky on Thursday.

“I was devastated when I didn’t make it for long jump,” White said at the IHSA Class 2A Sectional Track Meet at Sterling High School. “But it was awesome to make it in the 200.”

It came as a surprise to all parties involved that White qualified in the 200-meter dash considering it was the first one he ran all season although he started the season wanting very much to try out the event.

“It has been my own fault for not running it yet this year,” said White. “I missed my race once and false started in another, but I knew I could do it, and on Thursday, I asked coach to give me one more shot.”

One shot was all White needed.
