The winds were blustery Thursday night but we avoided the rain and storms that much of the state contended with for competition. They flipped the directions of the sprints and it seemed like no cross bars would ever stay on but the Madison Memorial Spartans took on the competition and had a great night. Each event only has 8 competitors at Sectionals and each athlete already represents the best from their area. The goal is to finish in the top 3 to guarantee a trip to state and a right to rerpesent Madison Memorial at the State Championships.

Athletes who competed great all season long and saw there season come to an end on Thursday night were: Nick M in the 300 hurdles (who was having a great race until the last hurdle...what desire) 8th in 44.32, KeYaunne B in the 200m dash (who came in seeded 8th and ran 2/3 of the race in qualifying position) 4th in 24.01, Blake T-J in the Pole Vault (came so close to make 13' 0" and may have needed to PR to get to state) 5th in 12' 6", and the 4 x 400m relay of Robbie E, Jordan B, Tyler M, and Josh P (who came in seeded 6th and finish 4th running close to a season best in the wind) 4th in 3:34.12.

Athletes who competed great all season and will represent Madison Memorial at State on June 1st & 2nd: Daurice F in the 110m hurdles (1st - 14.74) and 300m hurdles (3rd - 40.08), McKenna G in the 100m dash (2nd - 12.44), Marissa H in the 200m dash (2nd - 26.63), Hannah L in the 400m dash (2nd - 1:00.07), Corinne F in the discus (2nd - 125' 1") and the 4 x 100m relay of Phibi M, McKenna G, Rachel B, Marissa H, alternate Caroline S, and alternate Margot W (2nd - 50.17). We look forward to cheering on all these athletes at state.

The WIAA Championship series began Monday night for the Madison Memorial Spartans as they competed in the division 1 regional in Waunakee. The regional meet is always a tough meet as we know that athletes are fighting to keep their season alive. There were many great performances all around the track. Some of these performances were rewarded with another opportunity to compete on Thursday at Sectionals and others had to know they ended a great season with a quality performance at Regionals. A lot of hard work and dedication went into the season to get our athletes to this point of the season. We are honored to have had our seniors be a part of this 2012 team, we look forward to the underclassmen continuing to contribute to the program in the future, and we are excited to see which athletes will take the next step from Sectionals to compete at State.

Earning an opportunity to compete for a trip to state are: Corinne F - 2nd place Discus - 120' 2" and 4th place Shot Put - 33' 6.75", McKenna G - 1st place 100m dash - 12.85, Hannah L - 1st place 400m dash - 1:01.61, 4 x 100m relay of Phibi M, McKenna G, Rachel B, and Marissa H - 1st place 50.18, and Marissa H - 2nd place 200m dash - 26.37 for the girls squad. Blake T-J - 2nd place Pole Vault - 11' 6", Daurice F - 1st place 110m hurdles 15.32 and 1st place 300m hurdles 40.16, Nick M - 3rd place 300m hurldes - 41.33, KeYaunne B - 4th place 200m dash - 23.52, 4 x 400m relay of Robbie E, Jordan B, Tyler M, and Josh P in 3:33.23 for 4th place all on the boys squad. We wish these athletes the best on Thursday at Middleton as they look to take the next step in their track careers.

We had some great performances that ended in near misses as we had many athletes come up with 5th place results. The undersclassmen who experienced this or saw the emotions that were felt by the seniors experiencing this should use it as fuel this off season to make sure that we do not have to go through this next season. Some of these performances were by: girls 4 x 800 of Sara P, Sara N, Meghan S, and Hannah L 5th place in 9:58.20, boys 4 x 800 of Ben A, Jordan B, Tyler M, and Josh P 5th place in 8:13.11, Jess F in the discus 5th place 100' 2", Marissa H in the high jump 6th place 4' 10", KeYaunne B 5th place in the 100m dash in 11.60, boys 4 x 100m relay of Alex K, KeYaunne B, Ben I, and RaQuan C 5th place in 45.44, Sara P in the 800m run 2:29.17, Alex K in the 200m dash 5th place in 23.55, and Jonah W in the 3200m run in 10:03.62. Great job this year and excellent performances to cap off the season.

EVERYONE should come out and cheer on the team Thursday for Sectionals. Competition will be held at Middleton high school. Field Events begin at 4:00pm and Running Events begin at 4:45pm. All events are final as their are only eight athletes/teams qualified per event for Sectionals. The top 3 performances on Thursday will earn trips to the WIAA State Meet.

Big 8 Conference Championships

Tuesday night the Spartan track and field competed in one of the most competitive if not THE most competitive conference in the state of Wisconsin. We battled the weather, the competition, and the ups and downs of track and field all night. In the end the girls finished in 7th place with 48 points and the boys finished in 8th place with 49 points. We have taken many strides this year as a team but have a lot of work to do to reach the goals that we as coaches know our school and our track program are capable of accomplishing. We hope to continue to build around our young group of talent.

On the girls side of competition we were led by Juniors Marrisa H and Corrine F. Marrisa placed 1st in the 200m dash in 26.99, 4th in the high jump with a leap of 5' 0", and was a member of the 4 x 200m team that finished in 5th place. Corrine took 1st place in the discus with a toss of 126' 01" and added a 5th place finish in the shot put with a put of 34' 6". The 4 x 800 team of Sara P, Danielle G, Sara N, and Hannah L combined for a 5th place finish with a time of 10:21.21 additionally McKenna G, Anna H, and Rachel B joined Marissa for the 5th place finish in the 4 x 200. McKenna also scored a 3rd place finish on her own in the 100m dash with a time of 12.92. Freshman Phibi M made the hurdle finals in the 100m hurdles and finished in 8th place with a time of 17.63 to score some team points. Hannah L ran in a super competitive 400m dash to earn a 5th place finish in 1:00.58. In total the girls team had 21 underclassmen who competed at this years Big 8 Championships and we hope these girls are hungry to improve in the off season to come back next year and score more points at the Conference Meet.

On the boys side of competitiong we were led by Sophomore Daurice F. Daurice finished in 1st place in the 110m and 300m hurdles in 15.00 and 39.64 respectively and added a 4th place jump in the long jump of 21' 4.25'. Daurice was joined in his hurdling success by Junior teammate Nick M who made the finals of the 110m hurdles and placed 6th in a competitive 300m hurldes in a time of 41.98. Blake TJ had a great night just missing out on a conference championship finishing 2nd with a vault of 12' 9". The boys relay team of Robbie E, Hunter H, Josh P, and Ben A combined in the 4 x 800m relay to place 5th in a time of 8:28.61. Alex K made the finals of the 200m dash and placed 6th in a time of 24.28. Jordan B ran a 4:42.31 to place 8th in the 1600m and score a point for the team. Jonah W ran a 9:53.24 for 6th place in the 3200m run. The 4 x 400m relay team of Robbie E, Kaayvon GH, Jordan B, and Josh P ran a 3:35.9 for 8th place. Rob S made the finals of the shot put competition and Cam N made the finals of the discus competition. Rob finished in 8th place with a toss of 45' 10". The boys have 17 returners for the Big 8 meet and will need to put in a lot of work to make strides next year and into the future. We believe it can be done because we have seen the talent on this team and look forward to combining with the great work ethic we learned this track season all year long.

The importance is that each athlete performs to the best of their ability and takes positive experiences from this season. As we focus on the future of building Madison Memorial track and field it will take every individual, over many days of improvement, and a great focus on track and field.

Waunakee Frosh/Soph

Thursday night in Waunakee brought together some of the best young talent in the Madison area including Madison Memorial's very own freshmen and sophomore classes. It is always fun to see this young group of kids come together as a team and perform to such high abilities. As coaches we get excited about thinking what the future could hold for this group. As always we know that this can only be accomplished through hard work and dedication to the sport of track and field and the classroom over the coming years.

Christina M won the discus with a throw of 83' 5", Mariah O-F won the 300m hurdles with time of 52.0, Phibi M won the 100m hurdles with a time of 17.7, and Claire F. finished third in the shot put with a distance of 27' 2".

There were many PR's accomplished at Thursday nights meet. It is important that all of these athletes take full advantage of the coming weeks to finish their season with their best performances. Getting plenty of rest, drinking lots of water/fluids, and eating healthier over the coming days will help ensure this process. The best way to enjoy the end of the season is to make sure you are performing at your best.
