Baraboo Relays @ Baraboo HS

A busy week came to a conclusion Friday evening as the Madison Memorial boys and girls track & field teams competed at the 2013 Baraboo Relays. Spring weather has arrived (and we hopes stays but keep those hats and gloves handy just in is Wisconsin after all) and Friday night provided a wonderful opportunity for our varsity squads to showcase their combination of talent and depth at a relay meet. The 100m dash and 3200m run were competed individually as all other events were competed as a team. Athletes ran relays, combined for shuttles, or added up their heights/distances to take their places at the Baraboo Relays. This meet showed both the boys and girls teams the importance of every point at a track & field meet as after 16 events competed the boys team took 1st place by just 3 points and girls team missed 1st place by a mere 1 point. Both teams competed at a high level and have begun to raise the bar for the end of the season. We will see many of these teams again at City, Conference, and Regionals and we saw today how well we can match up against some good teams. We look forward to seeing the team continue to shine in the coming weeks.

On the boys side we scored 97 points to outdistance Madison LaFollette's 94 points. Earning victories on Friday night were: Jester W. in the 100m dash (setting a new meet record), the High Hurdle Shuttle of Nick M, Micah P, & Daurice F (setting a new meet record), the Sprint Medley Relay of Daurice F, Jester W, Nick M, & Josh P, and the Long Jump team of Micah P, Jester W, and Daurice F (setting a new meet record). Earning second place finishes included the 4x200m relay of Jake A, Jared B, Ben I, & Micah P, the Distance Medley Relay of Josh B, Tyler M, James A, & Jonah W, the High Jump team of Micah P, Jared B, & Curtis C, and the 4x400m relay of Nick M, Josh P, Jester W, & Daurice F. Rounding out top 3 finishes for the boys were the 4x800m relay of Josh P, John H, Jonah W, & Tyler M and the Discus team of Sean B, Ryan B, & Zach D. Many PR's by individuals helped these relays and teams perform at their best.

On the girls side we scored 104 points only to be outscored by Beaver Dam's 105 points. Top place finishes went to: the High Jump team of Marissa H, Sydney S, & Mariah O-F, the High Hurdle Shuttle of Mariah O-F, Phibi M, & Natalie S, the 4x200m Relay of Sydney S, Emma Cate M, Marissa H, & Rachel B, and the 4x100m Relay of Allison H, Marcella V, Rachel B, & Marrisa H. Taking home silver medals were: Marissa H in the 100m dash, the Sprint Medley Relay, and the Discus team. Also getting medals were: the 4x800m relay of Sara N, Gabrielle G, Sienna C, & Meghan S, Sienna C in the 3200m run, and the Throwers Shuttle of Claire F, Corinne F, & Caroline R.  When a meet is decided by one point there are many ifs and buts that can be discussed but instead of dwelling on this one point we will use it as motivation to make sure we don't allow it to be this close at meets in the coming weeks.

Our busy schedule continues and the countdown to Conference is only 2 1/2 weeks away. Now is the time of year to get rest, take care of your body, and set huge PRs. We are performing at a very high level as a team and this will continue if every individual does their part to be ready to compete every meet. Make sure we are going to class, staying ahead of homework, and being proactive to avoid unnecessary distractions away from the track and field. Let's end the season on a high note and meet the team goals we set after our indoor season.
