North Eyes Four-Peat 10/30/12

Belvidere, Illinois-The kings of cross country, the Belvidere North Blue Thunder, will go after their fourth straight State Championship this weekend. They'll be one of 20 teams competing in Class 2A in Peoria.

The Blue Thunder cruised to a Sectional Championship last week behind a first place finish from Garrett Lee. Another one of their top runners Tyler Yunk has been battling a hip injury, but he expects to be ready to go hard this weekend.

They'll need him to be at his best against some very good competition.

"Chicago Jones, they're really tough," says Lee. "They're ranked in the top 30 in the nation. They beat us in the first race of the year, so we're ready to get some revenge on them. We're ready to go."
