Area Athletes Head To State Meet In LaCrosse

Issue Date: May 31, 2018

Bulldogs Qualify in Five Events; Two Marines Headed to State

Peshtigo is sending three individuals and one relay team to the WIAA Division II state track meet following sectionals in Freedom, while Marinette is sending two individuals and Oconto Falls has one qualifier.

For Peshtigo, Mitchell VanVooren moved on in both hurdle events. After setting a school record in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 14.87, he added a third place finish in the 300-meter hurdles (40.37).

"Mitchell didn't let the ink dry on his first school record," Bulldogs coach Joe Nault said. "He's on a roll. His starts have gotten better, he's really strong and his confidence level is high. He's ready to race."

VanVooren also qualified as a member of the Bulldogs' winning 4x400 relay team with Cameron Barrette, Jerod Jandt and Reid Marquardt. The team won with a time of 3:29.41, .12 seconds better than second-place Kiel. The four Bulldogs were excited to make it to state as part of a relay team and run for each other.

"We're in the back stretch, so we just work harder and it pays off," VanVooren said. "There's more riding on it."

Cameron Barrette, who also took sixth in the open 400 (52.08), made a pass and set Peshtigo up to help win the race.

"I was following the guy in first and I was going to pass him once we got around the corner. I just had to find my gap," Barrette said. "Once I found my gap, I really took off. It was great. I loved it."

Jandt and Marquardt also had other races to run as well. Jandt took fifth in the 100-meter dash (11.13) just 1/100th of a second away from extra qualifier status, sixth in the 200 (22.82) and 10th in the long jump (19'3.5")

Marquardt advanced to state with a fourth-place finish in the 800-meter run, topping two minutes for the first time this year (1:59.37).

"Reid beat his goal," Nault said. "He put everything out there and he got it. He deserves it. It's unbelievable how hard he works."

With how many other races each Bulldog ran before the relay, Nault called the race a "gut check," saying, "All four of them went into this race and still excelled at it when it counted. They ran angry and they ran really strong. They knew what they had to do and they did it."

Marquardt said that running in the 4x800 relay last year at state helped him prepare to run the event this year, and it paid off.

"Since the beginning of the season, my main event I was going to do was the 800 and that was the event I was going to practice," Marquardt said. "Experiencing the 4x800 really helped me last year with just knowing what to do and running the race as hard as I can."

Even with all of Peshtigo's accomplishments at the sectional, perhaps the most impressive is Max Rauch's pole vault qualification.

Rauch smashed his personal record with a height of 14 feet and 9 inches, a foot higher than his previous PR, setting a school and meet record in the process.

"Today was awesome," Rauch said. "It was perfect conditions and everyone was hitting big jumps today. There was tons of adrenaline today with everyone."

Even with the new height, which required him to borrow a few poles from Bay Port High School to keep up with his progression, Rauch thinks he can go higher, and so do his coaches.

"I think I've got some more for this year," Rauch said. "I'm super pumped. I want to still be getting on bigger poles. That's always the hope."

His father, Ted Rauch, who coaches Max in the event, said, "there's still room to improve. He's doing well. I couldn't be prouder."

You can also count Nault in as someone who thinks Max still has something left in the tank.

"Max has been waiting to pop a big jump all year and he did it today," Nault said. "This is when it counts. He brought his A-game today and it showed. He could have gone higher, but he stopped where he did. He's saving it for state."

The Bulldog boys were third as a team in the sectional behind only Freedom and Valders.

Katrina Salmen was seventh in the 3200-meter run, her final run for the Bulldogs (12:38.41).

For Marinette, Katelyn Kitzinger advanced with a third-place finish in the 400 (59.97).

"I felt super good," she said after the race. "My confidence was up and I was super excited. We were working on speed workouts and I thought it paid off. I felt good the entire race."

Marinette coach Bryan Lenzner said, "We're definitely looking at breaking that minute barrier at state this year. She's not going to be denied of that one, that's for sure."

Jordan Wendt made it to state in the high jump. He placed fifth, but qualified as an extra qualifier at 6'3".

"That's a huge PR," Lenzner said.

JeremyWendt was eighth in the 110-meter hurdles (16.15).

For the rest of the Marinette team, Sherrie Wu was seventh in the long jump (15'10") and 12th in the 100-meter dash (13.22). In the shot put, Paige Florek was eighth in the shot put (35'6.75") and Emily Paulsen was 11th (33'4.25").

Carson Polomis was 14th in the 1600-meter run (4:58.84) and 15th in the 3200 (10:57.38).

The Marine 4x200 boys team was seventh (1:32.95) with a team of Alex Shaw, Anthony Jardeen, Jeremy Wendt and Jordan Wendt, as was their 4x100 team of Dalton Weissgerber, Sam McClain, Darrell Dufeck and Jardeen (45.44).

The Marinette girls 4x400 team of Cora Wendt, Kitzinger, Kimberly Carviou and Megan Mckenney was eighth (4:19.60).

Oconto Falls' Ericka Havemeier took second in the 200-meter dash to move on (25.92).

She said she's not too worried with how state will go, as she's accomplished her goals already.

"I'm not too concerned about how I'm going to place at state," she said. "I just wanted to get there. Even today, I was kind of like "whatever happens, happens.'"

A 4x200 team of Havemeier, Kennedy Kratz, Autumn Magnin and Katie Kurth was seventh (1:49.87).

The Panthers had a few heartbreakers. Autumn Canavera was fifth in the 400 (1:02.22) and Brent Wolf took fifth in the 300-meter hurdles (41.10).

Dakota Carriveau was 14th in the shot put (42'2") and a 4x800 team of Brody Schindel, Jared VanHaren, Noah Ludemann and Evan Roberts took eighth (8:32.80). Breanna Sadowski was 10th in the 1600 (5:54.61).

Oconto will not be sending anyone to state this year. Kyle Stoll took 16th in the 400-meter (54.70), while Josh Woller was 10th in the 1600 (4:48.72) and ninth in the 3200 (10:24.22).

Woller's only a freshman, however, so there's plenty of time to qualify for La Crosse. This year's state competition will take place on June 1 and 2.



M&O Sends 14 Athletes to State Starting Blocks
