Hillmen News · Track Athletes Headed to State

We had a big night.  The competition was fierce at our Sectional.  We had some nice places, a host of PR’s, and just some gutty performances.  It’s always tough when all of a sudden your season comes to a close just like that.  This is sport.
We had some celebrating to do as Platteville qualified 8 events on to the State Track and Field Meet next Weekend in LaCrosse!
We placed 4th with our Boys, and 7th with our Girls in the 32 Team field!
Izzy Carroll was a CHAMPION in both the Shot and Discus! (with a PR in the Shot)
Austin Jentz was a CHAMPION in both the Shot and Discus as well, but ended up with a tie in the Shot, and the tie breaker, took him to second in that event.
Calvin Wernimont was 2nd in the Pole Vault with a PR Jump of 13’6”.
Gabe Tashner was 3rd in the Pole Vault as well!
Tyler Moss Placed 4th in the Triple Jump
And, Jace Serres was 4th in the 800 Meter Run in a PR of 1:57.33
Great Night – Late Night!
