Eagles have GREAT showing at the State Championships!!

posted May 28, 2018, 7:16 PM by Levi Huseman

This past weekend wraps up the 2018 track and field season.  And what a weekend it was!!  The girls team finished 4th overall while the boys finished 15th!  This is the best team finish for the girls team at the state championships in the history of Olathe North High School!!!

In addition to the awesome team finishes we had several individual performances to celebrate!  Over the course of the weekend we had 13 podium finishes and 3 of those were STATE CHAMPIONS!!  Our state champions this year was Dana Baker in the Javelin and the Discus!  (It's worth noting that Dana set the state meet record in the Javelin in route to winning the event!) And our other state champion was the girls 4x800 meter relay team of Hannah Rodina, Claire Fuhlhage, Sarah Whitaker, and Zoey Schillinger! (And they set a new school record in winning the event!).  

The rest of our medalists are...
- Cade Heikes; 2nd in the 1600
- Marcus Davis; 3rd in the High Jump
- Joey Guzman; 3rd in the 3200
- Kaiya McKie; 3rd in the 100 hurdles
- Brea Turner; 5th in the 100 hurdles
- Reygan Brown; 6th in the High Jump
- Claire Fuhlhage; 6th in the 3200 & 8th in the 1600
- Hannah Rodina; 7th in the 800
- Dana Baker; 8th in the Shot Put  

It was a great weekend to be an Eagle!

Well, we are 4 weeks in to the competition season.  This marks the halfway point for the Junior Varsity athletes and the 1/3 point of the season for our athletes who (will hopefully) get the opportunity to compete in the State Championships.  We've had schedule changes, cancellations, wind, rain, sunshine, and everything in between. So basically a normal Kansas spring.  And we can't forget that we've had some awesome performances on the track and in the field!!!

To check out results from our first four meets you can click on the "Schedules/Results" tab at the top of the page (I will post results here throughout the season) or get to the same page by clicking HERE.

We also compile an "Honor Roll" of everyone's best marks throughout the season.  Here is the Honor Roll through the first four weeks!  

Lastly, we have been fortunate that parents have taken some pictures (go to our "Pics" tab at the top of the page)  as well as Kansas Milesplit (If you have a subscription account) has had photographers at several of our meets.  Check them out as there are a lot of really cool pictures of Olathe North athletes!!!

Together we can make your student-athletes experience a great one. ~Levi

The start of the Track and Field season is right around the corner!  If you are planning on running, jumping, or throwing (AND WE HOPE YOU ARE!!!) then there are a couple things you need to make sure you have done before the start of the season
1. Make sure you have your athletic physical done. If you've done another sport THIS YEAR then you are probably good.  Otherwise make sure you have one done after May 1, 2017 and get it turned into the front office
2. Get your name on our roster.  Its easy!  Just click here and answer a couple questions.
3. Sign up for text message reminders.  Text "@18ontf" to the number 81010 and you'll be good to go.
4. Order some Olathe North Track and Field Gear.  Click Here! to see everything we have. There are some instructions on the form.  Just read the stuff in the blue and red box.  When you are ready to order you can order everything online HERE! (The team package is at the bottom)
5. Check out the season Schedule right here!
6. Invite your friends!  The more people we have running jumping and throwing the more enjoyable this season will be!
