Four Comet Athletes Advanced To State

Several Comet athletes advanced to state-level competition this year. Greenville High School Athletic Director Joe Alstat told us more.

“Lady Comet Mattie Carter finished fifth in the pole vault on Saturday at Eastern Illinois,” Alstat said. “We congratulate Mattie on a great season — she set the school record at 11’ 3” in the girls’ pole vault.

“Devon Leitschuh qualified for the state finals at Eastern Illinois on Friday in both the 110 hurdles and the 300 hurdles, so we wish Devon luck as he travels on Friday for the prelims.

“Also, we have two tennis players that are competing in the state doubles tournament. Grant Suess and Mitchell Cole advanced by finishing fourth in the sectional at O’Fallon last weekend. We wish them luck as they travel near Chicago for the tennis state finals.”

Alstat said Grant and Mitchell will play today and hopefully again on Friday.
