WIAA State Championships - Day 1

The state's best came together Friday evening at the Division 1 WIAA State Championships at UW-LaCrosse. The Madison Memorial Spartans were represented by four of our best athletes competing in nine total events on the weekend. Our sprinters and hurdlers competed in trials looking to be in the top ten to advance to finals on Saturday. While the field event athletes had trials and finals altogether on Friday.

Corinne F competed in the discus looking to defend her 2012 state title. She threw 143' 10 in the trials and it stood the test winning her 2nd consecutive STATE TITLE in the discus by over 13'. Corinne will return to competition on Saturday competing in the division 1 girls shot put competition.

Daurice F had a busy day competing in the 110m hurdles, long jump, and 300m hurdles. The long jump was his only final on the day. He jumped 23' 2.75" in trials to lead by 2" going into finals and his jump stood up to give him his 1st STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. Daurice also ran the 110m hurdles in 14.81 qualifying as the second best hurdler for finals and ran 39.45 in the 300m hurdles to be the third best qualifier in that event. Daurice will compete in both the 110m and 300m hurdles on Saturday attempting to add to his medal collection.

Jester W competed in both the 100m and 200m dash trials on Friday. His time of 11.12 in the 100m dash has him as the top qualifier for the finals. In the 200m dash he ran 22.11 as the third best qualifier. Jester will compete in both the 100m and 200m finals on Saturday looking for his first hardware in WIAA Track & Field.

Marissa H also competed in the 100m and 200m dash trials for the girls. She ran 13.09 in the 100m dash for the 11th best time in state missing the finals by one spot. In the 200m dash Marissa ran 26.86 for the 12th best time also missing out on finals. Although it was a difficult experience missing out on the finals it was a great opportunity for Marissa to end her amazing Spartan Track & Field experience on the biggest stage at the State Championships.

Saturday will be another busy day for the Spartans as we look to add to our TWO STATE CHAMPIONS from Friday evening. Follow the action at www.foxsportswisconsin.com.
