THANKS for a Great Season!

The 2014 boys and girls Track & Field season was another exciting season for Madison Memorial. The program continues to compete at a high level in all competitions we enter. To build on this season's success we need to see commitment from all our athletes to improve over the off season months. It is the responsibility of each athlete to find opportunities to improve their speed, strength, endurance, and athleticism so as to be better prepared for more success in the future. As coaches we are excited for the potential of next season and look forward to seeing each individual improve in every event.

WIAA State Championships @ UW-LaCrosse

The Madison Memorial boys & girls Track & Field teams sent five of their brightest stars to UW-LaCrosse on Friday and Saturday to represent them against the best the state had to offer in the 2014 WIAA Division 1 State Championships. The weather for Friday's morning session was beautiful but the unpredictable weather of the Coulee Region in LaCrosse brought an over five hour storm delay for Saturday's finals. The Madison Memorial athletes were prepared and performed at a top level both days to end the season on a high note. The girls team just missed out on scoring (top 8 performances score) while the boys finished in 6th place totalling 30 points. Madison Memorial looks forward to bringing even more athletes back next season and continuing a proud tradition of success in track & field.

Daurice F capped a storied Madison Memorial career on Saturday becoming the most decorated boys state track & field competitor in school history with his 3rd individual STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. (JMM athletes with 2 state championships include Dan Cautley, Charlton Hamer, Phil Downs, & Jester Weah). In the process of winning the 110m hurdles Daurice improved his SCHOOL RECORD time to 14.04 and broke a 33 year old STATE MEET RECORD. His time of 14.04 is the 2nd best time EVER run by a Wisconsin high school athlete and ranks as the 29th fastest time in the NATION by a high school athlete thus far this spring. In addition to his success in the 110m hurdles Daurice added two other STATE RUNNER-UP performances in the Long Jump and 300m Hurdles. His leap of 23' 5" in the long jump improved his SCHOOL RECORD. While his time of 38.25 was a personal record in moves him into the top 30 all-time in Wisconsin state history. Over Daurice's high school career he earned 3 state championships, 2 state runner-ups, & a 3rd place at the WIAA state meets.

Micah P competed at state in both the 110m hurdles & triple jump. Micah ran a nice race on Friday in the 110m hurdles finishing 12th in 15.36 just missing finals (top 10 make finals). On Saturday Micah came out after the storm delay with bounce in his step as he leaped 45' 3.5" on his very first jump in trials. This leap was a new PR and held up throughout the competition for a 5th place finish. With his podium finish Micah earned four team points and capped a great four year career at Madison Memorial

Kayla G competed in her first state track & field meet on Friday in the girls pole vault. Kayla made both 10'0 & 10'6 on her first attempts before the bar was raised to a new PR height of 11'0. Kayla didn't make 11' 0 but her 10' 6" clearance with no misses landed her in 10th place. Kayla's season best of 10'9" means she will be graduating from Madison Memorial as the 2nd best pole vaulter in school history.

Sophomores Holly H and Sydney S competed in their first state championships and both handle the hype and stress of the state meet very admirably. Hopefully both gained valuable experience that will allow them to return in the future. Holly H threw the discus 118' 2" in the flights to earn a spot in the 10 person final. In finals she had a couple throws that could have moved her up that just landed out of bounds. Her throw of 118' 2" placed her in 9th place and has her ready to come back for more next season. In the high jump Sydney S cleared 4'10 on her first attempt and then also made 5'0" on her 3rd attempt. She was not quite able to make 5'2" (her PR) and settled for a 16th place finish. It was an extraordinary learning experience for Sydney who hopes to be back in high jump and maybe even more events next season.

The 2014 State Championships was another great experience for the Madison Memorial Track & Field program. Daurice, Micah, Kayla, Holly, & Sydney represented their teammates and fellow spartans wonderfully. Next season has many young talented athletes returning and promises to be just as successful if not more successful than this season. Put in the work over the next 9 months to be ready to contribute towards the continuing tradition of Madison Memorial Track & Field

JMM State Qualifiers

What does it take to make it to state in track & field? There are many qualities that compose a state qualifier for track & field. A combination of hard work, athleticism, dedication, skill, perseverance, and positive attitude can be found in all of the qualifiers this season from Madison Memorial. The group is made up of 2 boys & 3 girls, 3 seniors & 2 sophomores, 3 three sport athletes & 2 two sport athletes, and 5 great representatives of Madison Memorial. For young athletes on the team hoping to participate at state track & field next season you can learn a lot from these competitors.

On the face of things it would seem that Daurice, Micah, Kayla, Sydney, & Holly made it to state because they are the best athletes on the team. While this is partially true it does not tell the whole story behind what got these athletes to the point of being state qualifiers. Since they were freshman (even before for many of them) they have been dedicated to improving themselves as athletes. They have all participated in off-season lifting, they are all multi-sport athletes at Memorial, they have all seeked out opportunities to improve in their specific discipline, and they are all willing to put in the extra time to improve as an athlete. This can be ANYONE on our track & field team...if you are willing to make the commitment.

They all started from somewhere (it didn't happen over night):
Daurice ran 17.7 in his first 110m hurdle race (he set the school record this year at 14.05), he opened up in the 300m hurdles with a time of 45.5 (his PR is sub 39.0), and he didn't start long jumping until he was a soph when he jumped 18' 8.5" (he holds the school record at 23' 3.5").
Micah jumped 36' 4.5" in the triple jump as a freshman (currently 4th on the Spartan Seven at 45' 3") and didn't start running hurdles until his junior year with a time of 17.0 (he qualified to state with a 15.43)
Kayla pole vaulted 7' 6" as a freshman (now is #2 on the Spartan Seven with a vault of 10' 9")
Sydney started in the high jump as a freshman clearing 4' 6" (now is #3 on the Spartan Seven having cleared 5' 2")
Holly threw 52' 3" in her first meet throwing discus (qualified to state with #2 all-time best Spartan throw of 131'9")

What can YOU do to be the next JMM State Qualifier?
- Get faster & stronger (Summer Speed & Strength)
- Improve your technique (Attend a camp/clinic)
- Join another sport at Memorial (JMM athletics)

Best of Luck to Daurice, Micah, Kayla, Sydney, & Holly as they travel to UW-La Crosse to represent Madison Memorial this weekend.
