West Dual @ Mansfield

Mother Nature tried to interrupt the start of our outdoor season again but the Madison Memorial Track & Field athletes persevered through rain and cold to officially start the 2013 outdoor season. Tonight's dual was the first competition for many jv athletes and despite the weather there were many great performances by varsity and jv athletes alike. Today is just a starting point and a place to build from and improve upon. Everyone will be back out competing on Thursday or Friday and we look forwarded to marked improvement from the entire team.

In the girls competition, Madison Memorial scored 79 points to Madison West's 67 points to win the first dual of the season. The girls were led by victories from: Marissa H (13.17) in the 100m dash and (4' 8") in the high jump, Marcella V (13' 5") in the long jump,  Danni S (28' 9") in the triple jump, the 4x100m relay (54.80) of Robin B, Rachel B, Marcella V, and Marissa H, Corinne F (132' 6") in the discus and (35' 11 3/4") in the shot put, and Kayla G (7' 6") in the pole vault. The top three individuals in dual meets score points (5-3-1) and it was our depth that helped win this dual meet.

In the boys competition, Madison Memorial scored 75 points to Madison West's 71 points making it a clean sweep. The boys got victories from: 4x800m relay (9:09.43) of Tyler M, James A, Calder B, and Benton DD, Micah P (41' 6") in triple jump and (19' 2") in long jump, Daurice F (15.27) in 110m hurdles, Jared B (11.58) in 100m dash, Nick M (41.75) in the 300m hurdles, and Ryan B (39' 10") in shot put. The boys team only won seven of the eighteen events competed but was able to score in EVERY individual event. This talent across all event areas is what led to the victory for the boys today.

It is important that we are able to build off this first outdoor meet and improve the rest of the season. We can only do this by continuing to work hard at practice, getting plenty of rest at night, taking care of our bodies at home, and staying eligible in the classroom. Both boys and girls teams can accomplish big things this season if we continue to make strides and perform at our best in the coming months.
