Madison Dual Meet on April 1st 2004


Last Thursday the girls track team won the first 8 running events, the high jump and discus against Madison to clinch victory before backing off to save their legs for the Elmer Runge Classic Invitational on Saturday. Katherine Wingert and Jamie Klages led the scoring with 2 wins each. Wingert won the 1600 and 800 meter runs; Klages the 100 hurdles and high jump, the latter at 5 feet 2.5 inches. Caitlin Alley picked up second place points in both the 1600 and 800 leaving Caitlin Bigham to run solo in the 3200 which she won easily. Sara Player was third in the 100 hurdles and won the 300 hurdles in 53.0 followed by Danielle Eckert in third. Player also took second in the high jump. Beth Wittry, Megan Mushovic, Ashley Houston and Nila Heurtelou teamed up for a close victory in the 4x100 in 53.31. Heurtelou also won both the 100 and 200 meter sprints with Wittry taking third in the 200 and first in the 400. In her other events Mushovic picked up a trio of thirds in the long jump, triple jump and discus throw. Alexis Castro recently joined the team as a thrower and won the shot put with a toss of 31 feet 2.5 inches. Faced with an army of Madison sprinters, the boys’ team had no chance of winning the meet so we didn’t overtax anyone in view of the upcoming Invitational on Saturday. Still, Adam Munns won the high jump with 6-2 and Reid McLean clocked 43.4 to win the 300 hurdles. McLean also placed second in the high jump, long jump and 100, followed by Brent Gladney in the 100. Jake Ruzevick skipped both the 1600 and 800 meter runs but cruised to an easy win in the 3200 with 10:40 and ran a leg on the 4x400 as a prep workout for Saturday. Blake Gorey took the second place points in the 3200. Gino Jacob placed third in the 400, Mike Mitchell placed third in the 200 and David Zodrow placed third in the shot put.
