Jordan Harmon extended her final prep running season one more week after qualifying for the IHSA State Track & Field Finals starting on May 16. The Unity senior long distance specialist finished second in the 3200-Meter Run at last night's sectional meet hosted by the Rockets.

Clocking in at 11:23.92, she ended her race between sectional title winner Olivia Rosenstein, from Urbana, and Olney's Cameron Hough, who placed third.

Harmon advanced to state in a second event as well.

Crossing the finish line ahead of Monticello's Alyssa McPike (3rd) and Rachel Koon (4th), she finished second in the 1600-Meter Run stopping the clock at 5:17.84. Rosenstein, who beat her in the longer run, held on to win the event with a time of 5 minutes, 13.86 seconds.

Also advancing to the finals in Charleston from Unity, who finished sixth in the final team standings with 36 points, was junior shot putter Aliyah McDaniel. She earned a second place sectional finish with her best put of 39 feet-11 inches.
