Gagne wins 100, 200 for Northern Illinois Big 12 champ Knights
LASALLE – In his first season running sprints for Kaneland, Max Gagne was able to call himself a three-time Northern Illinois Big 12 champion in three instances – two sprint and a team title.
He won the 100-meter dash (11.17 seconds) and the 200 (22.83) on Friday at the conference championship meet, helping the Knights take first at LaSalle-Peru.
“I always played baseball, and [Kaneland track coach Andy] Drendel’s been on me the whole year about coming out for track," Gagne said. "Obviously it’s benefited a lot for me.”
