WISCO Track & Field
WISCO Alums Shine at D3 Indoor Nationals
There are many proud WISCO alums who have continued their track careers at the collegiate level. This past weekend was a banner weekend for four of them. Pictured from left to right...
Leif Van Grinsven ('15), a senior at Wheaton College, placed 3rd in the Heptathlon. David Lembke ('16), a junior at Carroll University, won his 1st National Championship in the High Jump with a winning jump of 7 feet 1/2 inch. Kyler Lueck ('15), a junior at UW-Eau Claire, won his 1st National Championship in the 800 run, establishing a new D3 Indoor Championship record with a time of 1:49.60. Congrats to these three former Vikings on their great efforts.
Eric Brown II ('15, not pictured), competed for UW-Madison at the D1 Indoor National Championships this past weekend. His leadoff leg on the Distance Medley Relay helped lead the team to a seventh-place finish, earning his second All-American award in his college career.
UW-Parkside...Thanks on Thanks on Thanks
Hosting two meets almost an hour south of your school is a big undertaking...and our family and friends came through again. Thanks to everyone who gave of their time to help at the meets this weekend. Our reputation for hosting great meets is due in large part to your efforts. On behalf of all of the participants and coaches, a thousand thanks to all of you.
Want to know how WISCO stacks up against the rest of the state? The statewide track honor rolls are compilations of the best performances from throughout the course of the season. The girls honor roll is really the work of Dave Figi, who volunteers endless hours of time to put together a fantastic resource for Wisconsin girls track. Click here for the current girls honor roll. The boys honor roll is compiled by athletic.net. To be honest, it's not quite as thorough as the girls list, but it's the best version for the boys in Wisconsin. Click here for the boys honor roll.
If you wish to order clothing for the 2019 season, KM Sports will again partner with us to offer clothing. This clothing order is completely optional...only order if you want to. Click here for the link. ALL ORDERS MUST BE PLACED BY MARCH 17TH. Orders will be brought to school and distributed to students. The goal is to have them in time for outdoor track to start in early April.
Each athlete will be asked to purchase a team T-shirt. Details will come through the head coaches at practice.
