Big 8 Championships

Friday night brought together some of the best competition in the state at the 2015 Big Eight Conference Championships hosted by Verona HS. How good is the Big Eight Conference you ask? Well after Friday nights meet the the Big 8 girls boast 53 state honor roll performances (2 of which are #1 performances) and the Big 8 boys have 42 state honor performances (4 of which are #1 performances). The Wisconsin weather cooperated Friday night to allow for many PR performances and the Madison Memorial Spartans rose to the occasion to contribute to this great meet. Over the night the girls team accumulated 71 points to finish in 5th place while the boys team garnered 36 points for an 8th place finish. Both teams will look ahead now to WIAA Regionals which will be hosted at Middleton HS and hope to have some top 4 finishers to continue the pursuit of the trip to LaCrosse for WIAA State.
