WISCO Track & Field
Pictured on the left was the view from Grandad Bluff on Friday. It was quite pleasant. Warm. Dry. Everyone was happy.
Unfortunately, we had to compete on Saturday. And Saturday was the worst state meet weather this century. Most of the meet varied from light rain to torrential downpour. It was as if the 2021 track season needed one more truly memorable event to take place.
Despite all of this, the kids performed quite well. Out of 128 teams in Division 1, the boys finished in 9th place, led by Triple Jump State Champion Isaiah Hopf. The girls finished in 10th place, with Jaiah Hopf winning state championships in both Long and Triple Jump. Full results are available on the Results page.
A reminder for athletes:
Woodland West Outdoor Conference Champions!
The boys and girls track teams both completed the ultra-rare Double Crown on Tuesday night, winning the Outdoor Conference Championship on the home track. Why is this ultra-rare? Blame COVID, which took away one of of our three conference meets this year (and what would be the traditional triple crown). Thanks to all the volunteers who helped to host another great opportunity for the athletes of the Woodland West Conference. Go to the Girls page for some female highlight, or to the Results page for full results.
Woodland West JV Outdoor Conference Champions!
The JV boys and girls teams both closed out their season in the most successful way possible, winning the JV Outdoor Conference Invite on another steamy night at WISCO. Thanks to the perseverance of the athletes and parents for dealing with a most challenging spring. Go to the Girls page for some female highlights, or to the Results page for full results.
In track and field, the term honor roll has a slightly different definition. The honor roll refers to the best performances in an event, usually statewide by division. For many, many years now ladies across the state have been able to track the honor roll thanks to the efforts of Dave Figi, a legend in state circles. His website (www.wisconsintrackonline) has promoted girls track in Wisconsin for a couple of decades now, with great action shots, historical lists and results...and the honor roll.

The boys also have a honor roll compiled by Milesplit. It will be published once a week. Click here for the current boys honor roll.
WISCO will be hosting several outdoor track meets this year. As always, we seek the help to run these meets as efficiently as possible. We promise the best seats in the house and all the thanks you could possibly want. No experience needed.
Coach Blair Schaper serves as Track Coordinator, and rounding up and organizing volunteers is one of the many things he does for the program. If you are willing to help in any way, reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
