Lakes High School grad Andrew Stein is beginning his senior season as a member of the men’s track team at Trine College in Indiana.
Trine competes at the NCAA Division 3 level and currently the team is in the midst of its indoor season.
In high school, Stein represented Lakes at the IHSA state meet in 2008 in both the long jump and triple jump.
This winter, Trine’s first indoor meet was the Tiffin University Alumni Games.
There, Stein finished seventh in the triple jump with a 39-6 effort, and eighth in the long jump with a 19-3 best leap.
Even though the school is located in Angola, Indiana, Trine is a member of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
That’s because the school is located in the northeast corner of the state — similar to the situation Zion is in here in Illinois.
Last year, Stein competed for the Thunder and consistently scored points for the team in both the long jump and triple jump.
