The Nashville Hornets track team wrapped up the regular season Thursday at the Chester Sectional, and several Hornet athletes earned spots in next week’s IHSA State Meet.
Joe Blumenstock, Jackson Pierce and Brandon Schnitker advanced in individual events, and the 3,200-meter relay team of Ryan Kell, Schnitker, Pierce and Patrick Neill will also compete in the big meet.
Blumenstock and Schnitker punched their tickets by finishing second in the pole vault and 1,600-meter run events, respectively. Pierce finished third in the 400-meter dash, but his time was good enough to earn him a spot at Eastern Illinois University.
