City Championships @ Lussier Stadium

The weather was finely beautiful for a track meet this spring as Madison East hosted the 2013 Madison City Championships. The Madison area has some of the best athletes in the entire state and they were on showcase Tuesday night at Lussier Stadium. This meet is a great beginning to our championship season and we look forwarded to continue to improve off this event. At the City Championships you score points if you place in the top 5 individually and top 4 for relays (this goes up to the top 8 at conference next week). The boys team accumulated 100 points to finish in 2nd place to Madison LaFollette's 135 points and the girls teams scored 72 points to finish 4th behind LaFollette's winning girls team of 97 points.

We had multiple 2013 City Champions, they included: Daurice F in the 110m hurdles (14.81) and 300m hurdles (40.56), Jester W in the 100m dash (10.71) and 200m dash (22.05) NEW SCHOOL RECORD TIME, and Ryan B in the discus (130' 11") on the boys side.

There were many PR's set Tuesday night and we are peaking at the correct time of year. Let's put our best foot forward in the coming weeks as we step out on the track and in the field for the last times this season. Next week Tuesday is Conference and we can do well there as a team. Then the top varsity kids prepare for a run towards the state meet. Take advantage of every opportunity that is placed in front of you this week and be ready to compete at your best in the coming days.
