The NEOITC Series kicks off later today with the Red Division #1 meet set for a 5:00 pm start time at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva.
Among the notables scheduled to be in action is Lake Catholic senior, Del'Mario Hairston. The 2018 Division I long jump state champion will compete in his marquee event. Hairston, who owns an indoor pr of 23-8, will be the heavy favorite to earn an season-opening win.
MileSplit contacted Lake Catholic coach, Erik Schroeder for more insight on Del'Mario:
After posting a mark of 24-5.5 in AAU action last summer, Del'Mario has worked incredibly hard in preparation for his senior season. He has emerged as a team leader and we can't wait to see what he accomplishes this winter and spring.
The road to a long jump state title repeat begins on Thursday for Del'Mario Hairston.
