Thanks for Another Amazing Season

The 2013 season saw many positives as the number of participants in Track & Field at Madison Memorial continues to grow and the success this is bringing the programs is evidence of the talent within the high school. Madison Memorial Track & Field is ready to take the next step to be competitive at every meet we attend including at the state level. To accomplish this we need athletes who are taking care of business in the classroom, working out in the weight room, seeking opportunities to improve in their individual disciplines, and helping their teammates become better athletes.

WIAA State Championships - Day 2

The battle for state championships continued on Saturday as all events were finals. Competition was fierce, times were fast, and once again Madison Memorial was a big factor in the outcome of the events. The field events held today were again trials and finals. Where as all the running events were finals on day two. The top ten competitors took to the track to determine the 2013 state champions.

Daurice F began the day for the Spartans in the 110m hurdles. He ran a 14.55 for a STATE CHAMPIONSHIP...his second of the meet and his first in the 110m hurldes. Daurice closed out his 2013 state meet with a 9th place finish in the 300m hurdles running a 40.73. Daurice ended his junior track & field campaign with two state championships and a school record.

Jester W kept the momentum going for Madison Memorial as he overcame a slow start in the 100m dash to win his first STATE TITLE running a 10.70. He continued his great day by adding his second STATE CHAMPIONSHIP in the 200m dash in a new school record time of 21.73. Jester had a great senior season finishing with two school records and two state championships.

Corinne F competed in the shot put on Saturday. Her throw of 36' 1" was good for 15th place and closed out her storied career at Madison Memorial. Corinne earned back to back state championships in the discus and also ended her career as the Madison Memorial's best girl's discus thrower.

The 2013 WIAA State Championships saw many great performances by Spartan athletes. Our team finished with FIVE STATE CHAMPIONS!!!! The boys scored 40 points to finish in 3rd place in the team chase (1st place was 51points and 2nd was 50points). The girls scored 10 points to finish in a tie for 27th place (1st place was 48points). This was an amazing state meet as we competed with only 4 athletes in 9 events. As our team grows and improves we would like to see more athletes competing at this meet and more events. As coaches we have seen the talent at our practices and are looking for those athletes with the drive and work ethic to take that talent to the next level. The Wisconsin high school athlete is getting faster, stronger, and more athletic. Will the Madison Memorial athlete continue to grow to this level of competition? Corinne, Marissa, Jester, & Daurice have laid a great foundation for this program to grow off of. Who is willing to take the next step to get to that level?

WIAA State Championships - Day 1

The state's best came together Friday evening at the Division 1 WIAA State Championships at UW-LaCrosse. The Madison Memorial Spartans were represented by four of our best athletes competing in nine total events on the weekend. Our sprinters and hurdlers competed in trials looking to be in the top ten to advance to finals on Saturday. While the field event athletes had trials and finals altogether on Friday.

Corinne F competed in the discus looking to defend her 2012 state title. She threw 143' 10 in the trials and it stood the test winning her 2nd consecutive STATE TITLE in the discus by over 13'. Corinne will return to competition on Saturday competing in the division 1 girls shot put competition.

Daurice F had a busy day competing in the 110m hurdles, long jump, and 300m hurdles. The long jump was his only final on the day. He jumped 23' 2.75" in trials to lead by 2" going into finals and his jump stood up to give him his 1st STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. Daurice also ran the 110m hurdles in 14.81 qualifying as the second best hurdler for finals and ran 39.45 in the 300m hurdles to be the third best qualifier in that event. Daurice will compete in both the 110m and 300m hurdles on Saturday attempting to add to his medal collection.

Jester W competed in both the 100m and 200m dash trials on Friday. His time of 11.12 in the 100m dash has him as the top qualifier for the finals. In the 200m dash he ran 22.11 as the third best qualifier. Jester will compete in both the 100m and 200m finals on Saturday looking for his first hardware in WIAA Track & Field.

Marissa H also competed in the 100m and 200m dash trials for the girls. She ran 13.09 in the 100m dash for the 11th best time in state missing the finals by one spot. In the 200m dash Marissa ran 26.86 for the 12th best time also missing out on finals. Although it was a difficult experience missing out on the finals it was a great opportunity for Marissa to end her amazing Spartan Track & Field experience on the biggest stage at the State Championships.

Saturday will be another busy day for the Spartans as we look to add to our TWO STATE CHAMPIONS from Friday evening. Follow the action at www.foxsportswisconsin.com.

Monona Grove Invite (GIRLS) @ Monona Grove HS

Saturday morning a small group of Madison Memorial girls competed in the Monona Grove Invite hoping to make one last big splash before the Conference Meet on Tuesday. Although the team did not have a full squad the athletes who did compete on Saturday performed at a high level. All the girls look like they are ready to take on the Big Eight come Tuesday for varsity and Thursday for JV.

The girls were led by Corinne F who won the discus with a throw of 148' 7" which improved her own SCHOOL RECORD by another three feet. Corinne also added a 3rd place finish in the shot put (35' 4"). Marissa H contributed a 2nd place finish in the 100m dash (13.51) and a tie for 3rd in the high jump (4' 8"). Marissa's teammate Sydney S also cleared 4' 8" in the high jump to tie for 3rd place. The team also got 5th place finishes from Skylaah G in the 200m dash (30.09), Mariah OF in the 100m hurdles (18.42), and Christina M in the discus (106' 7").

The team was led Friday night by Daurice F who won the 110m hurdles (14.86), 300m hurdles (40.53), long jump (20' 6.25"), and was a member of the 2nd place 4x400m relay (3:29.95). Daurice was joined as a multi-event winner by Jester W who won the 100m dash (10.79), 200m dash (22.48), and was a member of the 4x400m relay. Joining Daurice and Jester were Nick M and Josh P. Nick and Josh joined Tyler M and Sam B in the 4x800 to place in 4th place (8:18.54). On their own Nick M took 3rd in the 300m hurdles (40.91) and Josh P took 5th in the 800m run (1:59.28). Also, scoring points for the team with their top 8 finishes were: Ryan B in the discus with a 4th place throw of 144' 1", Jonah W in the 3200m run finishing 5th in 9:32.13, and James A in the 1600m run finishing 6th in 4:41.70.

Next week will bring an end to the season for our JV and some Varsity kids. It is important we get quality rest this weekend. Take care of our body and our health and be prepared to compete at our best during our conference competitions next week. Things are really coming together nicely and we look forward to ending the season on a high note.

JV & Frosh City Championships @ Lussier Stadium

The Madison Memorial track & field team returned to Lussier Stadium Wednesday night to compete in the JV and Frosh City Championships hosted by Madison LaFollette. The nice weather stuck around for another night and the jv and frosh kids showed their appreciation by performing at a high level. It is always fun to see our team compete at this meet and look for those athletes who will be competing on the varsity team on the near future. We encourage the athletes who competed tonight to dedicate themselves to make the big next step to improve their PRs and become varsity level athletes. Some of this work will happen in the coming days, much of this work will happen over the summer and in the off season. Which city champions from tonight can score points at the varsity meet next year? Who else will be able to help our team take the next step to be City Varsity Champions?

At tonight's meet athletes who placed in the top 5 of their event scored points for the team. Team places were kept track of in both JV and frosh competitions. On the girls side the JV team finished in 3rd place with 42 points, LaFollette scored 86 points and in the Frosh competition the girls scored 62 points to finish in 2nd place behind West's 83 points. On the boys side the JV team scored 93 points to take 1st place outdistancing LaFollette who had 75 points and the Frosh scored 87 points also taking 1st place outdistancing West who scored 62 points. Congratulations to the boys team on their JV & Frosh City Team Championships!!

Earning individual City Championships for the girls were:
Frankie F in the JV 100m dash (13.9), Joan M in the Fr 400m dash (1:09.9), Freshman 4x100m relay, Katie H in the Fr 300m hurdles (1:01.0), Kyra H in the Fr 3200m run (13:18.8), and Lindsey K in the JV 3200m run (14:11.1). Their were some field event champions but we don't have complete results yet...we will update when we get them.

Earning individual City Championships for the boys were:
JV 4x800 relay (9:20.6), Fr 4x800 relay (9:53.08), Trevis M in the JV 100m dash (11.5), Fr 4x100m relay (52.1), Calvin J in the Fr 800m run (2:18.0), and Zach H in the Fr 3200m run (11:25.6). Also, field event champions will be added once complete results are available.

Make a goal, set your sights high, and work hard to reach these goals. This is how JV and Frosh competitors become varsity competitors in the future. We have many athletes who competed Tuesday night for varsity that were in this same place of the jv and frosh athletes just a year or two ago. Lots of work in the weight room, multiple miles on the road, and plenty of speed & agility drills have transformed these athletes. Take the next step!

There were many PR's set Tuesday night and we are peaking at the correct time of year. Let's put our best foot forward in the coming weeks as we step out on the track and in the field for the last times this season. Next week Tuesday is Conference and we can do well there as a team. Then the top varsity kids prepare for a run towards the state meet. Take advantage of every opportunity that is placed in front of you this week and be ready to compete at your best in the coming days.

Spartan Invite @ Mansfield Stadium (BOYS)

You know it has been a rough weather season, when coaches think 48 degree weather with only a little rain and a breeze is a nice track & field weather. The weather was much better during the meet then it was in the afternoon and better then many days we have had already this season but we all hold out hope for some more spring weather in the next two weeks. Madison Memorial hosted the Spartan Invitational Friday night at Mansfield Stadium. Twelve of the top teams from around the state joined Madison Memorial to produce multiple state honor roll performances. The team finished with 73 points to finish in a tie for 3rd place. This meet was a great tune up for championship season which begins Tuesday night with the outdoor city championships.

The Madison Memorial boys were led by Track Performer of the Meet Jester W who improved his school record 100m dash (10.67 - FAT) with a victory and won the 200m dash with a 22.08 missing the school record by .02. He was joined in victory by Daurice F who won both the 110m high hurdles (14.79) and long jump (21' 10.5") and Nick M who won the 300m hurdles in a personal best (40.37). Also scoring points for the Spartans were Jonah W 4th in the 1600m run (4:29.81) and the relay teams of the 4x100m 4th place (45.16), sprint medley relay (2,2,4,8) took 6th place (3:53.46), the 4x400m 3rd place (3:37.48), and the 4x800 took 6th (8:44.44).

Waunakee Frosh/Soph @ Waunakee HS

Winter is back...luckily in Waunakee we only got 40's and rain and not the snow that some parts of WI experienced but the Madison Memorial Frosh/Soph simply got out their gloves, hats, and tights and went to work Thursday night. Even in the not ideal weather conditions we had multiple personal bests. Hopefully we get at least one more chance at nice weather but it was great to see so many kids competing regardless of the conditions. The boys team finished in third place and the girls team finished in fourth place. It was nice to see how we compared to other kids our own age. This is going to be a fun group of kids to watch grow and improve over the next 2-3 years of school.

Earning medals for their top three finishes were event winners Natalie S in 100m hurdles (18.19) and Sydney S in the high jump (4' 6"); 2nd place finishers Kyra H in the 1600m run (6:17.29), Sydney S in the 200m dash (29.98), Price R in discus (92' 11") & shot put (33' 7"), and Alex B in long jump (17' 7.5"); 3rd place finishers Claire F in shot put (28' 6.5") & discus (69' 4.5"), Jenna R in the high jump (4' 6"), Robyn B in long jump (13' 9.5"), Skyylah G in triple jump (27' 4.5"), Alec D in discus (84' 11), and the boys 4x100m relay (51.04).

We encourage these freshmen and sophomores to continue to work hard and look for opportunities to improve. Everyone who competed today has the potential to contribute to varsity if they are willing to do the work in the classroom, at the track, and in the weightroom. What can you do to improve? How much can you improve your PR yet this year? Put your mind to improving now and future performances will take care of themselves.

Verona Dual @ Verona HS

The heat arrived Tuesday night (it will be gone by Thursday...highs around 50) and made it feel like summer for one day. The wind was brisk but the storms stayed away, so all in all it was a nice day for a track & field meet. The girls extended their undefeated season in duals with their 74 to 72 win over Verona. The boys experienced their first loss of the season going down to Verona 92 to 54. Again, dual meets are an opportunity to improve and experience new things. We will see Verona again in two weeks at the Big Eight Conference meet and both teams will be ready to showcase their best on that night. JV kids are now down to their last two weeks...lets be ready to end on a high note.

Earning victories on the girls side tonight: 4x8 relay of Sara N, Kelsey K, Kyra H, and Meghan S in 10:53.23, Marissa H in the 100m dash (13.14), 200m dash (26.83), and 400m dash (1:02.03), Sienna C in the 1600m run (5:40.61), Sara N in the 3200m run (12:55.15), Corinne F in the discus (127' 4") and the 4x4 relay of Sydney S, Katie H, Gabrielle G, and Mariah OF in 4:36.78.

Earning victories on the boys side tonight: 4x8 relay of Jonah W, Calder B, Connor GT, and Bryce H in 9:12.02, Daurice F in 110m hurdles (15.07), 300m hurdles (39.97), and long jump (19' 6 1/2"), Jared B in the 100m dash (11.57), Josh P in the 400m dash (53.12), Courtney M in the 200m dash (24.67), and James A in the 3200 m run (10:47.90).

Be prepared for everything that Wisconsin weather will throw at us over the next couple weeks. Take care of your business at the track and away from it, so we are able to perform at our best. Be proactive with your teachers to get your homework/schoolwork done so we don't get behind because of early release time. This is the time of year that should be fun...let's make it so!

Baraboo Relays @ Baraboo HS

A busy week came to a conclusion Friday evening as the Madison Memorial boys and girls track & field teams competed at the 2013 Baraboo Relays. Spring weather has arrived (and we hopes stays but keep those hats and gloves handy just in case...it is Wisconsin after all) and Friday night provided a wonderful opportunity for our varsity squads to showcase their combination of talent and depth at a relay meet. The 100m dash and 3200m run were competed individually as all other events were competed as a team. Athletes ran relays, combined for shuttles, or added up their heights/distances to take their places at the Baraboo Relays. This meet showed both the boys and girls teams the importance of every point at a track & field meet as after 16 events competed the boys team took 1st place by just 3 points and girls team missed 1st place by a mere 1 point. Both teams competed at a high level and have begun to raise the bar for the end of the season. We will see many of these teams again at City, Conference, and Regionals and we saw today how well we can match up against some good teams. We look forward to seeing the team continue to shine in the coming weeks.

On the boys side we scored 97 points to outdistance Madison LaFollette's 94 points. Earning victories on Friday night were: Jester W. in the 100m dash (setting a new meet record), the High Hurdle Shuttle of Nick M, Micah P, & Daurice F (setting a new meet record), the Sprint Medley Relay of Daurice F, Jester W, Nick M, & Josh P, and the Long Jump team of Micah P, Jester W, and Daurice F (setting a new meet record). Earning second place finishes included the 4x200m relay of Jake A, Jared B, Ben I, & Micah P, the Distance Medley Relay of Josh B, Tyler M, James A, & Jonah W, the High Jump team of Micah P, Jared B, & Curtis C, and the 4x400m relay of Nick M, Josh P, Jester W, & Daurice F. Rounding out top 3 finishes for the boys were the 4x800m relay of Josh P, John H, Jonah W, & Tyler M and the Discus team of Sean B, Ryan B, & Zach D. Many PR's by individuals helped these relays and teams perform at their best.

On the girls side we scored 104 points only to be outscored by Beaver Dam's 105 points. Top place finishes went to: the High Jump team of Marissa H, Sydney S, & Mariah O-F, the High Hurdle Shuttle of Mariah O-F, Phibi M, & Natalie S, the 4x200m Relay of Sydney S, Emma Cate M, Marissa H, & Rachel B, and the 4x100m Relay of Allison H, Marcella V, Rachel B, & Marrisa H. Taking home silver medals were: Marissa H in the 100m dash, the Sprint Medley Relay, and the Discus team. Also getting medals were: the 4x800m relay of Sara N, Gabrielle G, Sienna C, & Meghan S, Sienna C in the 3200m run, and the Throwers Shuttle of Claire F, Corinne F, & Caroline R.  When a meet is decided by one point there are many ifs and buts that can be discussed but instead of dwelling on this one point we will use it as motivation to make sure we don't allow it to be this close at meets in the coming weeks.

Our busy schedule continues and the countdown to Conference is only 2 1/2 weeks away. Now is the time of year to get rest, take care of your body, and set huge PRs. We are performing at a very high level as a team and this will continue if every individual does their part to be ready to compete every meet. Make sure we are going to class, staying ahead of homework, and being proactive to avoid unnecessary distractions away from the track and field. Let's end the season on a high note and meet the team goals we set after our indoor season.

JV Big 8 Invitational @ Verona HS

Thursday night finally brought some nice track & field weather and many of the Madison Memorial JV athletes took advantage at the rescheduled Big 8 JV Invitational. The event is not scored but we do record times, distances, and heights. The boys and girls teams saw personal bests by 35 athletes! The hard work from practice and the weight room is showing up in competition. Some athletes earned the right to compete at the varsity level with their performances from Thursday night. The competition between teammates for varsity spots will make all the athletes better. We need to continue to be at the top of our game as many athletes will compete 2 - 3 per week in the next two weeks as we lead up to the city and conference championships. Keep improving, keep striving for your best, keep up the good work.

A big shout out of THANKS to all the JMM athletes who helped out working the meet Thursday night...we did a great job hosting this meet (and we even got the hurdles on and off the track well :)!

Beloit Dual @ Mansfield

The rain and snow held off but the temperatures took a nose dive towards winter instead of spring. The boys & girls of the Madison Memorial Track & Field team just bundled up and went to work taking care of business against their opponent Tuesday night. This is the time of year when our bodies ache, our muscles are sore, and we are all on the verge of injury. It is important that we get SLEEP, that we ICE and STRETCH, and that we drink WATER. After next week, we begin championship season and things will get easier, times will get faster, distances will become farther, and heights will get higher BUT we need to be healthy to compete in these meets. It is only 3 weeks until conference!!!! It doesn't feel like it because of the weather but it will be here soon...stay positive, dream of sunny track & field meets, and be ready to compete at your best.

Tuesday night saw the boys and girls teams extend their dual meet winning streaks. We use these meets as workouts and stepping stones but it never hurts to enjoy a victory. The girls scored 93 points to Beloit Memorial's 43 points and the boys totaled 97 points to Beloit Memorial's 49 points. There is still room for improvement but many things went well tonight.

Watertown Invitational @ Watertown High School

The rain and snow finally gave way to sunshine and although the temperatures may have not quite warmed yet the feeling of spring was present at this Saturday's Watertown Invitational. With the change of date from Friday to Saturday the meet saw a drop in competing teams but still had some nice competition. The field events were hosted indoors (no discus) due to wet conditions while the running events were competed outdoors. It was nice to compete against multiple teams, have FAT timing, and earn some hardware for our competition. The boys team accumulated 116 points for third place and the girls team scored 74 points for fifth place. It was nice to see both teams competitive for scoring points and teammates encouraging each us as a team effort.

The performance of the day goes to Jester W as he won the 100m dash (10.78), 200m dash (22.83), and was a member of the 2nd place 4x400m relay. Jester's time of 10.78 (FAT) in the 100m dash set a new SCHOOL RECORD breaking the old mark of 10.8 (hand time). Adding another victory was Jonah W in the 3200m run (9:52.83). Micah P wrapped up a busy days with three 2nd place finishes in the 110m hurdles (16.20), Long Jump (19' 4.5"), and Triple Jump(41' 1.5"). The 4x800 team of Sam B, John H, Jake R, and Tyler M ran 8:44.88 for 2nd place and the 4x400 team of Nick M, Tyler M, Jester W, and Josh P ran 3:32.89 for 2nd place. Nick M added a second in the 300m hurdles (41.77) and a fourth place in 110m hurdles(16.79). Rounding out the top three finishers was Bryce H in the 3200m run (10:20.69). Others scoring points for the boys team included: Courtney M 4th in the 400m, Tyler M 5th and James A 7th in the 800, Josh P 5th and Connor GT 7th in the 1600, 4x100m relay 4th, and Jeremy G 4th in the shot put.

On the girls side Sienna C and Corinne F secured victories in their individual events. Sienna C ran 11:58.65 to win the 3200m run and Corinn F threw 35' 4.25" to win the shot put. Additionally, Marissa H ran a 13.14 to take a runner up finish in the 100m dash. Rounding out the top 3 finishes for the girls was 4x200 running in 1:52.71. Scoring points with top eight finishes included: Sarah H 8th in the 200, Samantha G 6th in the 1600, Sara N 4th in the 3200, Mariah OF 6th and Phibi M 7th in the 100m hurdles, Mariah OF 4th and Gabrielle G 7th in the 300m hurdles, 4x100m and 4x400m relay in 6th place, Marissa H 4th and Sydney S 5th in the high jump, and Christina M 5th in the shot put.

The weeks become busy with competitions, important workouts/lifts, busy schedules, and improved performances. Listen to your coaches, trust their plans, and give your best effort. Everyone will have a chance to improve every week, so take advantage of your opportunities. There is no better time then the present to start competing at your best.

Middleton Dual @ Middleton HS

Thursday night the Madison Memorial track & field team braved the elements to take part in our second dual of the outdoor season. We are becoming used to practicing and competing in the rain and wind. As coaches we loved seeing the competitive fire in many of the athletes who competed in the not so ideal weather conditions. This competitiveness and hard work will pay off once the weather turns nice (or should we say IF the weather turns nice). For the second straight dual meet this season the girls and boys teams were victorious. The girls scored 65 to Middleton's 62 points and the boys scored 70 to Middleton's 57 points. These meets give the coaches a nice picture into our abilities for the rest of the season and prepare us to compete our best at the invitationals and championship meets that lie ahead on the schedule. The conference championships is less then 4 weeks away...will you be ready to run your best?

Madison Memorial took 1st place in these events on Thursday night:
GIRLS- 4x800 in 10:53.6 (Sara N, Sienna C, Kelsey K, Meghan S), 100m dash by Sarah H in 13.7, 300m hurdles by Mariah O-F in 51.3, 200m dash by Sydney S in 29.8, 4x400 in 4:36.5 (Mariah O-F, Sydney S, Sarah H, Emma Cate M.), Triple Jump by Danni S in 29' 10", and Shot Put by Corinne F in 32' 5"
BOYS- 110m hurldes by Daurice F in 14.7, 100m dash by Jester W in 10.9, 1600m run by Tyler M in 4:53.0, 4x100 in 47.8 (Jake A, Josh B, Ben I, RaQuan C), 300m hurdles by Daurice F in 41.1, 200m dash by Jester W in 23.4, 3200m run by Hans H in 11:05.3, Long Jump by Daurice F in 20' 11", Triple Jump by Micah P in 41' 4", and Shot Put by Zach D in 38' 5"

We appreciate everyone's patience and willingness to make things work as we continue to work towards our goals even against the long odds mother nature has thrown at us. Stay positive, support each other, and know faster times, longer distances, and higher heights are just on the horizon. Keep reaching for your goals and we will have a great end of the season (and maybe even a sunny end of the season)

West Dual @ Mansfield

Mother Nature tried to interrupt the start of our outdoor season again but the Madison Memorial Track & Field athletes persevered through rain and cold to officially start the 2013 outdoor season. Tonight's dual was the first competition for many jv athletes and despite the weather there were many great performances by varsity and jv athletes alike. Today is just a starting point and a place to build from and improve upon. Everyone will be back out competing on Thursday or Friday and we look forwarded to marked improvement from the entire team.

In the girls competition, Madison Memorial scored 79 points to Madison West's 67 points to win the first dual of the season. The girls were led by victories from: Marissa H (13.17) in the 100m dash and (4' 8") in the high jump, Marcella V (13' 5") in the long jump,  Danni S (28' 9") in the triple jump, the 4x100m relay (54.80) of Robin B, Rachel B, Marcella V, and Marissa H, Corinne F (132' 6") in the discus and (35' 11 3/4") in the shot put, and Kayla G (7' 6") in the pole vault. The top three individuals in dual meets score points (5-3-1) and it was our depth that helped win this dual meet.

In the boys competition, Madison Memorial scored 75 points to Madison West's 71 points making it a clean sweep. The boys got victories from: 4x800m relay (9:09.43) of Tyler M, James A, Calder B, and Benton DD, Micah P (41' 6") in triple jump and (19' 2") in long jump, Daurice F (15.27) in 110m hurdles, Jared B (11.58) in 100m dash, Nick M (41.75) in the 300m hurdles, and Ryan B (39' 10") in shot put. The boys team only won seven of the eighteen events competed but was able to score in EVERY individual event. This talent across all event areas is what led to the victory for the boys today.

It is important that we are able to build off this first outdoor meet and improve the rest of the season. We can only do this by continuing to work hard at practice, getting plenty of rest at night, taking care of our bodies at home, and staying eligible in the classroom. Both boys and girls teams can accomplish big things this season if we continue to make strides and perform at our best in the coming months.

TFA @ UW-Whitewater Kachel Fieldhouse

The 2013 indoor season came to a close on Saturday with the TFA Indoor State Championships held in the Kachel Fieldhouse at UW-Whitewater. This meet is known as the Indoor State Championships unofficially because it draws so many teams from across the state with a wide array of talent. It is not really a state meet because there are still so many talented athletes who do not come to this meet and so many events that are not competed. The competition was stiff in both the morning girls session and evening boys session. Our athletes had great opportunities to see what it takes to keep on the highest level at high school athletics in Wisconsin. As coaches we hope everyone uses this meet for motivation as we change gear and move into the outdoor season. There are 5 more weeks until our outdoor Conference Meet and 7 more weeks to prepare for the WIAA State Championships.

During the morning session the girls team finished in 21st out of about 55 total teams. Corinne F improved her personal best in the Shot Put to 38' 9" to place 3rd in the meet. Marissa H ran 7.69 in the 55m dash to make Semi-Finals and then improved to 7.68 for 15th, she also cleared 4' 10" in the high jump to tie for 17th place. Kayla G made 7' 6" in the pole vault and just missed at 8' 6" she finished in 20th place on the day. Personal bests were turned in by Claire F and Christina M in the shot put, Meghan S in the 1600m run, and Sienna C in the 800m run. This group of girls looks to lead us into the outdoor season. We look forward to some spirited competition among teammates for these coveted varsity slots.

During the evening session the boys team collected 26 points good enough for 3rd place out of about 52 total teams. The boys team was lead by Jester W and Daurice F as Jester placed 1st in the 55m dash in 6.39, Daurice took 2nd in the 55m hurdles in a new PR of 7.51 and 2nd in the long jump with a leap of 21' 6.5", and they joined forces with Nick M and Jared B in the 4x200 relay to run 1:35.03 and place 10th. Jonah W just missed scoring points in the 1600m run with his 9th place finish in 4:31.01 and Josh Peters took 14th with his 2:02.62 in the 800m run. Personal bests on the boys side we reached by Jared B in the 55m dash, Tyler M in the 1600m run and  Sam B in the 800m run. There were many positives that came from today's meet and many more things that we learned we can improve. Use the TFA meet as a stepping stone for what we want to accomplish at the end of the season. Keep up the hard work and things will fall into place at the end of the year.
