It’s been a record-setting spring on the track for the Seminole Tribe’s Silas Madrigal.

Madrigal was a part of two relay teams at North Park University in Chicago that set school records.
Madrigal and teammates Michael Kleiner, Jereme Ombogo and Terence Hollis ran the fastest 4×100 relay time in school history in a meet April 23 at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois. Their blazing time of 42.29 seconds was good enough for second place at the meet.

At another meet, Madrigal helped set another school record as he, Kleiner, Sean Sanaghan and Luis Chavez shattered an 11-year-old record in the 4×800 relay by more than 26 seconds in a late season meet.

Madrigal earned all-conference recognition by virtue of the 4×100’s third place finish at the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin outdoor championships.

Madrigal, who also plays on the school basketball team, is a sophomore majoring in exercise science. He is a graduate of Okeechobee High School and Pemayetv Emahakv Charter School.

He is the son of Letty and Howard Madrigal.

North Park is a private Christian school on the north side of Chicago.
