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.
