Josh Eiker will be a junior at Galesburg High School. He’s having a busy summer due to being one of the top sprinters in the country.

Josh Eiker placed 2nd in the 200 meters and 4th in the 100 at the Class AA IHSA State Track & Field meet. He broke the Class AA record in the 200 in the semifinals. That time qualified him to compete in the USATF Junior Nationals in Eugene, Oregon this weekend. He has since won his age group at the Illinois Junior Olympic meet in both the 100 and 200, breaking the state 200 record and setting a new Galesburg High School record in the 100. Josh and Streaks head track coach Craig Hillier joined us on the WGIL Morning News.

Participants Say Railroad Days Move to Main Street Works

WGIL Newsroom 181

Two people taking part in events that were a part of this year’s Railroad Days celebration say the move of the bulk of the events back to Main Street is a great idea.

Yesterday, a classic car show took up many blocks that basketball and water fights among others covered on Saturday. That’s along with a return of a rib cookoff.
