Storm Lake tracksters honored

Tuesday, July 13, 2004

Three members of the Storm Lake High boys track and field team recently gained All-State honors.

Senior Adam Sievers, one of the team's 2004 captains, was named to the Academic All-State team.

According to SLHS boys track and field coach Jeff Brennan, in order to be named to the team, students must post a minimum grade-point average of 3.8 and score at least a 28 on the ACT college entrance exam. He must also have been an outstanding track athlete who competed at the state meet.

"Adam was great role model as a student athlete for our team and a good leader for us this season," said Brennan.

The coach added that Sievers is headed to the Air Force Academy on a full academic scholarship.

Meanwhile, Tornado seniors Nick Sorbe and Mike Keller were each voted to the All-State Iowa Track and field team. The top two placers in each event at the state meet in individual and relay events were named to the team.

Sorbe took second in the open 800 meters in late May at the state meet while Keller was the Class 3A state long jump champion.

"Nick and Mike are really going to be missed on our team next season," added Brennan. "Together, they accounted for 27 of our points at the state meet."

Sorbe will attend Simpson College in the fall and plans to play baseball and football for the Storm. Sorbe was an All-Lakes Conference quarterback for the Tornado football team this fall and is a standout pitcher/first baseman for the baseball team this summer.

Brennan added that Keller will attend Buena Vista University in the fall, where he plans to run track and field for the Beavers.
