PALOS HEIGHTS | Just two weeks ago, Illiana Christian's Victoria Archie thought it would be fun to give the long jump a try. Now, she's taking first place in the same competition.

With just two weeks of practice under her belt, Archie took first place in the long jump at the Chicago Christian Invitational on Friday night with a jump of 16-5. Archie also took first in the 200 meters and second in the 100 meters to help lead the Vikings to a first-place team finish in the girls team competition. Anna Krygsheld finished in first in the shot put for the Vikings with a throw of 33-8. Illiana Christian's Ariel Peevy took first in the discus with a toss of 96-5.

"I was kind of disappointed because I wanted first in the 100," Archie said. "I was taxed out because I had to run the 100 again because the timers didn't take the time. My last jump I was really nervous, then they came on the intercom and said the girls have to rerun the 100. I was so angry, and the rage in me is what got me the 16-5."

Illiana Christian (128) beat out second place Aurora Christian (107) and the rest of the field going away. Seton Academy (39) finished in seventh place in the girls team standings.

Peevy said she is shooting for a discus toss of 110, but she was happy with the first-place finish and her team's performance.

"I was motivated and my team did really well," Peevy said. "That kind of pumped me up more. I'm happy where I'm at, but I definitely want to improve and get a personal record."

Seton's Mykel Adams placed second in the 200 meters with a time of 27.36. Adams is coming off of an ankle injury just four weeks ago.

"I've been rehabbing and practicing really hard," Adams said. "I'm just kind of getting back where I can be, so I can get downstate and compete."

The Illiana Christian boys finished in second place in the team standings and were led by Tony Wondaal who took first in the 1600 meters with a time of 4:29. Wondaal missed the meet record by a second and a half.

"I wanted to go for time because I waited too long in the season to bust out a good mile," Wondaal said. "Tonight was the night. Everything lined up. I'm very happy with tonight. I can only say thank you."
