End of Season Awards Recap
Thanks to those who were able to join us for the Awards Night. One last time to gather together as a 2021 track family, say some good stuff to the ladies, and bid our graduates a fond farewell. In addition to the varsity and JV awards, a handful of special awards were handed out:
Newcomer Award: Bella Backus
Leadership Award: Deanna Campbell
Most Points Scored: Jaiah Hopf
Most Valuable Athlete: Jaiah Hopf
For those who were unable to attend, awards will be at the Receptionist desk all week. You can return your uniform and pick up your awards there during summer hours (Monday through Thursday 8-3...Friday 8-1). Otherwise the ladies can catch up with Coach Goede at the beginning of the school year.
What a memorable day. Pouring rain (don't be fooled by this picture...literally taken during the one 45-minute dry period all day). Ankle-deep mud. Vaulting indoors (due to said rain). What we saw was a group of ladies using their God-given talents to the best of their ability all day long. Congrats to all of the performances:
Jaiah Hopf--Long Jump--STATE CHAMPION
Jaiah Hopf--Triple Jump--STATE CHAMPION
Eva Kuehn--1600 Run--7th place (setting a new WISCO Freshman record)
Allie Orlowski--Pole Vault--11th place
Deanna Campbell, Koto Imahori, Myla Ellis, and Jaiah Hopf--800 Relay--12th place
Deanna Campbell--100 Dash--16th place
Malia Lee--Shot Put--16th place
Eva Kuehn--3200 Run--17th place
The coaching staff for the 2021 season:
Jason Goede ('94)--Sprints and Hurdles
Becky Huebner ('99)--Sprints and Long/Triple Jump
Shakirah Cousins--High Jump and Mid-Distance
Emmalie Olsen (MLC Student Teacher)--Mid-Distance
Tim McEachern ('99)--Throws
Taylor Corkum ('13)--Pole Vault
The meet schedule is available on the Schedules page.
Meets will be much smaller than veteran track parents are accustomed to. WIAA Regulations this spring are that no more than 8 teams should participate in a track meet. Several of our meets will be 4 teams.
There will be some change in practices as well to best ensure the health and safety of all participants. As has been the case with everything in the past year, flexibility and a positive spirit will go a long way towards making it a successful season.
