The IHSA Class 2A Track and Field Sectionals were held last week at Troy [Triad]. Massac's team garnered 16 points to finish ninth in the 15 team field. Massac's total was earned on the strength of Nickayly English's first place finish in the high jump with a leap of 5'01". Ansley Bailey hauled in points as well with a fourth place finish in the 400M dash. Bailey ran a 59.58 400M. Both performances earned the girls a trip to the state finals held May 16-18 at O'Brien Field on the campus of Eastern Illinois at Charleston. Good luck, Ansley and Nickayly.
