Lasher did not advance to finals

Effingham High School senior Clark Williamson has advanced to the finals of the Class 2A Boys State Track Meet.  The finals will be held Saturday on the campus of Eastern Illinois University in Charleston.

Williamson cleared 13' 9" in the pole vault Friday morning to qualify for the finals.  That height is a personal record for Williamson.

Another EHS senior Thomas Lasher was unsuccessful in his attempt to reach the finals in the triple jump.  Lasher reached 41' 5-3/4". 

Williamson joins several Class 1A athletes from the area in reaching Saturday's finals.
