Two tabbed by group: Eureka's Keegan Zimmerman and Jake Weber of Roanoke-Benson have been chosen third team all-state by the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association.
Five lauded by HOIC: Keegan Zimmerman was named unanimously to the Heart of Illinois Conference first squad, while teammate Adam Anderson and Fieldcrest's Derek May were picked to the five-player all-defensive team. May and sophomore teammate Jaxon Cusac-McKay were selected to the second squad.
Eureka sits atop the mountain: The Hornets (82 points) won the 24-team Jacksonville Invitational March 1 on the Illinois College campus. The four by four relay of Job Knapp, Eli Steinbeck, Connor Standish and Micah Senior placed first, as did Aden Sears in the long jump.
Hornets win relay, individual: The four by eight of Lexi Grober, Elle Knapp, Tessa Wiegand and Alexi Fogo took first, while Emma Argo did the same in the 3200 at Saturday's Charleston Invite at Lantz Fieldhouse on the Eastern Illinois University campus. Out of a field of 32, Eureka (50) was third behind Monticello (56) and Belleville West (55).
