Brandt's Winning 400 Effort Leads Stevenson in North Suburban Meet


McGraw, Mike, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Byline: Mike McGraw Daily Herald Sports Writer

The North Suburban Conference boys track meet was timed better than the most accurate stopwatch.

The meet was held in soggy conditions at Warren High School in Gurnee.

But no rain fell until about two minutes after the final event was completed.

Less than an hour later, lightning lit up the north suburban sky. But by that time, Zion-Benton had already taken the first-place trophy home.

The Zee-Bees won the meet and overall conference title. Libertyville finished second, followed by Warren, Antioch, Stevenson, Lake Forest, North Chicago and Mundelein.

"The seeds predicted Zion beating us by about 17," said Libertyville coach Ron Long. "Our kids did pretty much what they were going to do. We had a couple of surprises."

Stevenson had one individual winner, Kyle Brandt.

The Patriots junior sprinted to the 400 meter title in 51.4 seconds, beating Antioch's Kevin Fasana by a second.

"I've been running sprints all my life," Brandt said. "This is only the third or fourth time I've run the 400 in a meet. I switched at midseason.

"I just try to stay close to the pack until the last 100, then turn it on. When I hit the 300 meter point, I just took off and it worked. I feel like every meet I'm taking a second off my time.
