St. Ignatius College Prep senior Jack Keelan is this week's Prep Star of the Week.
Keelan was the pre-race favorite at the state 3A Cross Country Championship race at Detweiler Park in Peoria and he would not disappoint.
Inspired in part by his failure to qualify for the state meet a year ago, Keelan built a comfortable lead and was never challenged down the stretch. He finished with the 10th fastest time in state meet history - 14 minutes and five seconds.
Keelan became just the second athlete in St. Ignatius history to win a state championship.
Congratulations to Jack who carries a 3.8 GPA and is being recruited by several of the top colleges in the country.
