Lyons Regional recap

Saturday, October 23 2021 - IHSA Regional Championships - Levynn Chambers

Jones’ season will continue at least one more week!

Junior Hastings BaCote and sophomores Lena Almer and Selma Taylor each qualified for the Class 3A Hinsdale Central Sectional with strong runs Saturday.

Competing on a 5-kilometer course at the Lyons Regional in Western Springs, BaCote finished 25th overall in 19:42.5. Almer was 30th in 20:04.7, and Taylor was 34th in 20:30.3. They were among the five individuals to advance from non-qualifying teams. 

Junior Eva Kay Papadopoulos (20:58.2) and sophomore Anna Korfmacher (21:24.9) also scored for Jones.

The top six teams advanced. Jones was seventh. 

BaCote, Taylor, Papadopoulos, Korfmacher and senior Levynn Chambers (21:46.5), all of whom have competed in multiple 5Ks in their Jones careers, set PRs at that distance.

Thank you to everyone who showed up in the cold to support the runners!
