2010 City Outdoor

Congratulations Madison Memorial Spartans on your City Championship

It has been 12 years since the City Champion Trophy has been in the halls of Madison Memorial. Great effort to pick up points and scratch our way to the championship against some very deep and impressive teams. There were many highlights, but a few standout.....A city meet record and a school record tying 110m hurdle victory for Senior Captain Lechein Neblett. Other city champions were Ed Kluender in the Shot, Jon Jung in the disc, and Lechein Neblett in the long jump.
Gritty performances by many athletes who were not at 100% due to illness and injury helped to push us over the top. The triple jump crew scored well with Colin Cannef and Alvin Olson placing 2nd and 4th. Alvin Olson also contributed points with a 2nd place HJ finish. The throws crew and pole vaulters came thru again to help out their teammates. The list could go on and on, for every point that was scored there is a story behind it....for every point that was just out of reach today; set the countdown for 7 days for the next opportunity....that is what makes a team.

2010 43rd Spartan Invite

The 2010 Spartan Invite is canceled. With finals scheduled for 7pm and temperatures in the 30s in the core of the meet with windchills and rain further dampering the issue we did not want to risk injury of any athlete from any team. The difficulty in warming up properly and competing at a high level was a major concern anticipating these conditions. Deep regret and best of luck to all competitors, coaches, and families.
