Belvidere North alum Will Crocker, now a runner for the Mizzou Tigers, captured 1st place at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, winning the 1500 meter run. The former Blue Thunder star clocked in at 3:43.93, just shy of his Stanford Invitational time of 3:43.66, one of the top times in the program's history.
Crocker was a two-time IHSA All-State in the 800m event while at Belvidere North, as well as a member of the 2011 IHSA 4x800m relay state championship team. He also garnered IHSA Cross Country all-state honors while attending the NIC-10 school in Boone County.
