New Berlin's Brooks still alive in quest for Rio


EUGENE, OR -- New Berlin native Lance Brooks' Olympic dreams are still alive.

The discus star threw 192 feet, 8 inches at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field trials Thursday. That's good enough to put him in Friday's finals.

Carlinville's Kelsey Card came up short in her attempt for a spot in the Shot Put finals. She scratched on all three throws. Card already qualified in Discus earlier this month. 

A pair of Southern Illinois Salukis, Gwen Berry and Deanna Price, qualified in the Hammer Throw.

The U of I's David Kendziera also advanced to the semifinals of the 400-meter hurdles.
