4x400=State Championship for Lady Vandal relay team

-A A +A
By Seth Whitehead

Four x 400.

Prior to last weekend's IHSA girls state track and field meet, those figures equated to many tremendous accomplishments for Kris Stunkel, Ashley Durbin, Kayla Houston and Paige Dodson during the 2008 season.

Countless school records, a conference championship and a sectional title - just to name a few.

But on a sun-drenched Saturday afternoon at Eastern Illinois University's O'Brien Stadium in Charleston, 4 x 400 equated to something Stunkel, Durbin, Houston and Dodson could have never dreamed coming into the team's first state appearance.
