OAK FOREST | The Crete-Monee girls track team is good, but coach Willie Cole is not going to let the Warriors get too far ahead of themselves.

The Warriors (98) took second place behind Lincoln-Way Central (104) in the team competition at the Oak Forest Invitational on Friday night.

Tineja Foy won both the 100- and 300-meter hurdles for Crete-Monee in 15.12 and 47.52 seconds, respectively.

Simone Fears won the 100 in 12.56 and the 200 in 25.62. Fears said she sees her team getting stronger as the season progresses.

"I'm feeling really good," Fears said. "Coach wanted us to do good in this meet, and I didn't want to let him down. We really have a strong team. At first, there was a little doubt about what everybody could achieve, but once we come together, we make ourselves better."

The Warriors also took second in the 400, 800, and 1,600 relays.

"Our relays are good right now," Foy said. "We could have tried a little harder in the four by four. I just want to keep working on my hurdling times."

Foy, who also runs on the Warriors' 1,600 relay team, ended the night with severe cramps in her legs.

"My times weren't as good as I wanted them to be," Foy said. "I still need to work on my technique. The times are decent right now, but I want them to be better."

Cole said he isn't letting up on his players but is pushing for them to be the best they can personally be.

"Looking at what the state standards are, we can qualify six or seven events this year," Cole said. "I'm a jerk. A kid walks up and says, 'Hey coach, I took third'. I don't care. Place means nothing. What matters is how far did you jump or how fast did you run."

T.F. South's CeCe Keys finished first in the shot put with a throw of 35 feet, 1 inch. Keys had thrown a personal best 37-0 on Tuesday at Lemont and was looking to stay consistent with her distances.

"Today was a good meet," Keys said. "The weather wasn't good at all, and it took a toll on everybody. My throws are getting towards the 40 range, which I am very pleased with."
