Our Very Own - A State Champ

This spring, Perspectives Track & Field student-athletes competed with the best in the state at the IHSA Class 2A State Championships at Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, IL.

We’re proud to announce we have a state champion! Perspectives Leadership Academy’s Rodrick McMiller wins gold in the 100m (10.85 sec) and the 200m (21.69 sec)! He also became a three-event medalist, finishing 3rd in the long jump, with a jump of 22 feet, 08.75 inches!

Congratulations to Rodrick for his impressive accomplishments amongst his peers. He now holds a special place in Perspectives’ Athletics history.

Rodrick was not the only Perspectives athlete to do well this Track & Field season. Perspectives Math & Science Academy/Joslin 4x200m relay team finishes 8th in state! Supriem Clark, Carlos Camaron Cortez, Jajuan Govan, and Kolby Pruitt are the first MSA/Joslin boys’ track members to qualify for state in Perspectives’ history. As you can see, our athletes are doing great things!

Congrats to all of our state championship finishers on a great season!
