ALTOONA — After their four-team Dunn-St. Croix meet in Glenwood City was rained out May 27, Boyceville had an opportunity to jump into its first out-of-conference competition.
Although the Bulldogs struggled a bit in last Tuesday’s Altoona Invitational, the girls placed eighth in the ten-school meet while the boys were last, it had to be a refreshing experience to take on some big school, non-conference opponents.
The Lady Bulldogs scored 44.5 points while the Boyceville boys struggled to score finishing with just four points in the meet.
Colby won the girls’ team title with 138 points while Cumberland came out on top in the boys’ battle with 152. Fall Creek was the runner-up in both gender competitions with 130 points for the boys and 121 for the girls.
Sophomores Abbigail Schlough, Emma Gruenhagen, and Haylee Rasmussen had the best finishes for the Boyceville squads taking a trio of seconds.
Schlough and Gruenhagen both tied for second place in the ladies pole vault competition with vaults of 8’ each.
Rasmussen was the triple jump runner-up with a best of 30’ 0.25”.
The girls’ 4×400 meter relay team of Schlough, Rasmussen, Jaden Stevens, and Shiloh Wheeldon copped third with a time of 4:46.72.
Stevens added an individual fourth place in the 800 meters after running a 2:42.61 as did Rasmussen in the high jump with a good jump of 4’ 6”.
The Boyceville girls also claimed a sixth in the 4×200 meter relay. The team of Makayla Schewe, Juieanna Banyai, Sara Bauer, and Emma Gruenhagen ran a time of 2:16.83.
Schewe also earned a pair of team points with a seventh in the pole vault after cleanly clearing the six foot mark.
Freshman Peter Wheeldon scored all four of the Bulldog boys’ points. He ran a :49.28 to take sixth and three team points in the 300 meter intermediate hurdles and placed eighth in the 800 meters with a time of :57.76 for a point. Wheeldon also tied for ninth in the high jump.
