Long distance running is still alive and well at Sandburg High School, but the Eagles’ 3,200-meter relay streak at state could be in jeopardy.

Boys track coach Joe Nemeth and distance coach John O’Malley have some decisions to make between now and mid-May, when the Illinois High School Association begins sectional action. The Eagles own one of the most impressive runs in the state in the 3,200 relay with seven straight Top 4 finishes, including state championships in 2015, 2016 and last year. The team set a state record at 7 minutes, 37.36 seconds in 2016.
