York didn't lack motivation Friday night in the final West Suburban Silver boys track and field meet for retiring coach Stan Reddel.
The Dukes were ready to win in the final meet for their veteran coach and the team did just fine with nine wins in 18 events.
In Reddel's 14 years as the varsity coach, the Dukes claimed their 12th conference championship by scoring 149.2 points. Three York individuals won two events each, led by Illinois State-bound senior Reid Smith, who repeated his conference titles in the high jump and pole vault. Josh Farrar won both the 100-meter dash (11.09) and 200 (22.51) and Jarvis Hill won twice in the 110 hurdles (15.36) and 300 hurdles (39.42).
