Dual @ Sun Prairie

Tuesday night brought some nicer weather and another great opportunity to compete outdoors this season. The dual meets are learning experiences for our athletes and places to develop for the season. It is important that all Spartans take something away from tonights meet that they want to improve upon this week at practice. Every day we need to bring focus and dedication to our practices and we will continue to see PRs and improvements. Every improvement makes our team more competitive and therefor a better team. Keep up the great work at meets, practice, and in the classroom and we will have a fun finish to this season.

Event winners for the girls tonight go to McKenna G in the 100m dash, Hannah L in the 400m dash in 1:01.8, Corrine F in the Discus with a throw 121' 7", Kayley A jumped 32' 0" in the triple jump, Marissa H ran 27.1 in the 200m dash and jumped 4' 10" in the high jump, and the 4x400 relay team. The final team score of the girls dual was 85 points for Sun Prairie and 56 points for Memorial.
Event winners for the boys tonight were Daurice F in the 110m Hurdles in 14.9 and 20' 1" in the long jump, Jester W 11.2 in the 100m dash and 23.0 in the 200m dash, Ben A. running 4:43.2 in the 1600m run, Blake T-J with a vault of 12' 6" in the pole vault, Josh P 54.7 in the 400m dash and 2:06.4 in the 800m run, Jordan B. ran 10:28 in the 3200m run, and the 4x400 relay team of Ben A., Josh P., Robbie. E., and Nick M. The final team score of the boys dual was Sun Prairie 73 points and Memorial 68 points.

It was amazing to see the improvement the entire team made in just one week of practice. Some kids will compete on Friday at the varsity meet but all kids will have another week to show what improvments they can make before next week's dual meet. Set a goal this week for what you need to do to improve and work hard at improving yourself and your teammates. Communicate with your coaches so that we are all on the same page to get things accomplished.
