Congratulations to Hunter Hendershot!
After multiple State Championships in track and field as a thrower of the shot put and the discus, Hunter Hendershot is ready for his new challenge which will be at the University of Illinois.
As one of the most decorated track and field athletes in Central Illinois history, Hendershot says one of the biggest contributing factors to his success was his newly found faith.
Hendershot will study sports administration in college and hopes to be an athletic director in the future.
