Monona Grove Invite (BOYS) @ Monona Grove HS

The temperature may not have indicated that spring was here but the fast times, big heights, long distances, & top performances heated up the night at the 2014 Monona Grove Invitational. The Madison Memorial boys competed in their last tune up before the Big 8 Conference Championships and looked like they are rounding into fine shape at the right time of year. The boys scored 127 points on the night to finish 5th out of 20 teams. The Spartans performed very well against some of the top Big 8 teams and our future regional & sectional competitors. Now is the time to take care of your body, rest up, & be ready to finish on a high note.

The team was led by Daurice F who earned the Outstanding Performer of the Meet Award for winning the 110m hurdles (14.83), 300m hurdles (39.69), & long jump (20' 7.25") along with being a member of the 4x100m relay team. He was joined in his outstanding performance by his hurdling & jumping teammate Micah P who won the triple jump with a leap of 43' 8.5" and place 5th in the 110m hurdles (15.74). Other athletes scoring points with their top 8 finishes include: 4th place finishes by Jeremy G in the discus (140' 10") and Jake R in the 1600m run (4:34.25), 7th place finishes by Jake A in the 100m dash (11.62), Anthony H in the 400m dash (53.88), the 4x100m relay (44.90), 4x400m relay (3:42.74), Hunter P in high jump (5' 10"), and 8th place finishes by 4x800m relay (8:43.20), Ryan B in discus (132' 1"), and Bryce H in the 3200m run (10:15.44). Another notable performance on the night was one foot PRs in the pole vault by both Dondreon C (10' 6") and Zach O (10' 6").
