On July 16 local residents Jenn, Taylor and Colby Sehi traveled to Lincoln to compete in the Cornhusker State Games. With it being the last track meet of the summer, they wanted to do well. Jenn brought home 3 medals-2 golds for the 200 meter dash and long jump, and a silver for the 100 meter dash. Taylor brought home a bronze for the long jump. Both are now qualified for Nationals in 2013 in Pennsylvania. This was Colby’s first year at Cornhusker. He placed 12th in the long jump, 14th in the 200 meter dash and 6th in the 100 meter dash.
Taylor participated in the Midget Girls class and Colby participated in the Bantam Boys class. Taylor and Colby attend Elgin Public Schools and are the children of Jaysen and Jenn Sehi and the Grandchildren of Jack and Pat Sehi and Greg and Loralee Woodard, all of Elgin.
Great Job to all three of them!
