WIAA State - Day 1

The best of the best converged at UW-LaCrosse Friday morning to compete for WIAA State Championships. Madison Memorial sent a contingent of nine athletes to represent and they did not disappoint on the first day of competition. The weather was beautiful, the bluffs were wonderful, and the track action was amazing. On the track Daurice F started the day off with a 8th place qualifying performance in the 110m hurdles. Daurice's time of 14.97 earned him a spot in the finals on Saturday (jsonline.com photo). McKenna G ran a 12.86 for 19th place in the 100m dash. Hannah L ran a 1:00.57 in the 400m dash for 18th place. Phibi M, McKenna G, Rachel B, and Marissa H joined forces in the 4 x 100m relay  to run a time of 50.08 as the 7th best performance of the day which qualifies them for finals on Saturday. Daurice F ran a 41.61 in the 300m hurdles for 21st place. Marissa H ran a 26.49 in the 200m dash to earn 18th place. The performance of the day goes to Corinne F in the discus. Discus flights and finals took place today and Corinne was seeded first after flights. She continued her success in the finals improving on each throw. Corinne had 3 of her seasons bests 5 throws at the state meet. Her throw of 137 feet and 4 inches were good enough for 1st place by about 8 feet. Congrats to Corinne on her 2012 DISCUS STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. (MTC blurb)
