Rogers Continues to Excel

A new road sign (left) has been erected in Herscher in honor of Drew Rogers winning the 2019 IHSA Class 1A State Cross Country meet. 

Rogers, a sophomore, broke the Herscher High School 1600 meter record at an indoor meet on Sunday at Proviso West High School.  Among the 52 boys entered in the race, Rogers came in first, and achieved his personal best time of 4:25.19. His previous best had been 4:38. 

The 1600M record of  4:27.30 was set by Dave Moss in 1979.
