Bulldogs, Toppers open outdoor track season

BALDWIN — Mother Nature finally decided to give us a taste of spring last week.

And several area athletic teams took advantage of the warm temperatures and clear blue skies to participate in several events including the Boyceville and Glenwood City track and field teams which both got the outdoor season underway with an 8-school meet held at Baldwin-Woodville High School onTuesday, April 14.

A trio of area athletes – two Bulldogs and a Hilltopper – each placed and scored points in three separate events in Baldwin.

Senior Logan McAbee-Thomas took one of the two firsts earned by Boyceville competitors when he claimed the triple jump crown with a leap of 40’ even, over ten inches better than runner-up Levi Wolf of Elmwood/Plum City. He also took fourth in the 100 meters (:12.09) and fifth in the long jump (18’ 5.5”).

Tyler Krueger, a Boyceville sophomore, captured the area’s only other top finish when he vaulted 11’ to win the boys’ pole vault competition at Baldwin.

Sophomore Cassie Malean also copped points in three events for the Bulldogs with a pair of third place finishes in the long jump (14’ 11.5”) and high jump (3-way tie at 4’ 6”) as well as a fourth in the 200 meters (:29.20).

Glenwood City senior Marcus Kadinger also pulled off the trifecta with a pair of thirds in the 400 (:55.41) and 800 (2:19.82) meter runs. Kadinger also finished tied with the top leap of 5’ 6” in the high jump but took second based on misses to Ellsworth freshman Adam Huber.

Juniors Morgan Kadinger and Rachel Klatt each placed in a pair of events to help lead the Glenwood City girls to a sixth place tie with Boyceville as each team finished with 46 points.

Eau Claire Regis came out on top of both the girls’ and boys’ standings with 151.5 and 139 points respectively.

Hayward, with 148.5 points, was a close second in the girls’ team scoring followed by host Baldwin-Woodville, Elmwood/Plum City, and Ellsworth  to round out the top five. Spring finished last, just three points behind the Bulldogs and Toppers.

The Bulldogs boys’ team tallied 76.5 point for a fifth place showing while the Hilltoppers were 20 points and one place back in sixth. Spring Valley finished as the boys’ runner-up with 130.5 with Elmwood/Plum City and Ellsworth tied for third at 104 points each. Baldwin-Woodville was seventh and the Hayward boys were eighth.

Morgan Kadinger finished in a three-way tie for third in the high jump along with Boyceville’s Cassie Malean and Regis’ Hayley Gibbons after each cleared 4’ 6”. Kadinger also placed fourth in the 800 meters (2:42.25).

Rachel Klatt was third in the girls’ shot put with a throw of 34’ 9.25” and sixth in the discus throw with a best of 79’ 9”.

The Lady Hilltoppers also scored points in all four of its relay events; taking third in the 4 x 800 meters, fourth in the 4 x 100 m, fifth in the 4 x 200 m and sixth in the 4 x 400 m.

Four other area athletes also scored points in a pair of events.

Boyceville sophomore Erica Sempf secured two fourth place finishes as she ran 1:10.61 in the 400 meters and jumped 14’ 8” to finish just three inches and a place behind teammate Cassie Malean. Fellow Bulldog and senior Mitchell Pustol also captured a pair of fourth place finishes. He earned them in the 1,600 meter run (4:59.73) and the 300 meter intermediate hurdles (:50.61).

Seniors Todd Petersen and Kaitlin Konder also scored points in a pair of events for the Hilltoppers. Petersen finished second in the 110 meter high hurdles (:18.60) and fifth in the triple jump (36’ 5.5”). Konder was part of the three-way tie in the ladies pole vault competition finishing with a best vault of 6’ 6” and ran to an eighth-place showing in the 1,600 meters (6:30.08).

Much like the Glenwood City girls’, relays proved to be valuable-point getters for the the other three area squads as well. Boyceville’s boys scored fourth-place finishes in the 4 x 100, 4 x 400 and 4 x 800 meter relays while its girls’ teams had a fifth and two eighth-place finishes in the same ones. The Topper boys grabbed a fourth in the 4 x 200 m and fifths in the 4 x 400 and 4 x 800 meters races.

Several other area competitors earned places and points in the meet. Those along with the finishes of all Glenwood City and Boyceville athletes are noted in the results that follow. The top eight finishes in each event earn team points (10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1).
