Area Athletes Advance to State in 17 Events

Issue Date: June 2, 2022

Bulldog's Brissette

is Lone Area D2

Athlete to Advance


Peshtigo hurdler Ethan Brissette earned a place at the Division 2 State Track & Field Championships with a fourth-place finish in the 110-meter hurdles in Little Chute on Thursday.

Brissette was fourth in the prelims with a time of 15.95 seconds, and the Bulldog sophomore took off some time to stay fourth with a 15.67-second time in the finals.

Brissette didn't come into the meet seeded fourth, but he set a personal record to advance, with the help of a disqualification among one of the top four runners.

"I was thinking "Well, I'm not seeded fourth, but I've got to speed my time up if I want to make it,'" he said.

He said that working with Mitchell VanVooren, who won state in the hurdles as a Bulldog before going on to compete for Marquette University, helped him improve over the final weeks of the season.

"He came out and helped all the hurdlers, and I think that really helped a lot. I got that trail leg quicker and that lead leg. It really helped," he said.

He's also improved from a mental standpoint, Peshtigo coach Derek Smith said.

"Once he started realizing he can contend with some of the best runners, little by little, he's been slowly making progress, with PRs almost every meet," Smith said.

The Peshtigo coaches had all good things to say about Brissette in every aspect.

"Ethan, not only is he dedicated to the team, but he's a confident kid, and he comes to practice every day ready and willing to work. He's been that kid that's put forth the extra effort," coach Stephanie Nault said. "He's just an all-around good kid. I think we see it as coaches. I think other kids on the team see it. He's kind of just a leader among his peers. Through his work ethic, he shows it all."

The top four athletes in each event qualified for state, to be held Friday and Saturday at UW-La Crosse. Brissette was also sixth in the 300-meter hurdles (43.28) to fall just short.

He was the only athlete from Peshtigo, Marinette, or Oconto Falls to make state from the Little Chute sectional.

Teammate Darius Sechen was 10th in the shot put (44-10). Arikka Carroll was ninth in the 400-meter dash (1:04.61), Holly Pesch took 11th in the 3200-meter run (12:57.53), Alaina Archambault was 11th in the 300-meter hurdles (51.14), and Christina Powers took 10th in the shot put (33-7).

Carroll and Sechen are both seniors, while the other Bulldog sectional qualifiers are all freshmen or sophomores.

For Marinette, Cale Ducane was eighth in the discus (136-4) and 15th in the shot put (40-8). Logan Paris was 12th in both the 110-meter hurdles (17.47) and 300-meter hurdles (44.62), and a 4x400 relay of Finn Seaborg, Ryan Demmith, Paris, and Robert Hruska took ninth (3:39.59). Seaborg and Hruska are seniors. The other Marine boys to qualify for sectionals each have one more shot at it next year, when they'll be seniors.

Junior Kylie Veriha took 14th in the girls high jump (4-8), while a team of seniors Molly Knutson and Hadley Reines and freshmen Madison Kunick and Addison Lacy was 10th in the 4x800 (10:38.63).

The girls 4x800 and Marinette boys 4x400 each ran their fastest times of the season.

Oconto Falls had a couple of ninth-place finishers. Sophomore Hannah Ludemann was ninth in the girls 1600 (5:49.86) and senior Joe Adams was ninth in the boys 1600 (4:43.76).

Ludemann was also 15th in the 4x400 relay with Maddy Przybylski, Brynn Hodkiewicz, and Brooke Hodkiewicz (4:33.78).

A 4x100 team of Anna Spaulding, Abby Budz, Hailey Kopke, and Hailyn St. Louis took 11th (53.73), and a 4x800 team of Przybylski, Brynn Hodkiewicz, Ava Hokdiewicz, and Hailey Delzer was 14th (10:52.95).

Brianna Delzer took 12th in the discus (95-4), St. Louis was 10th in the high jump (4-10), Kopke was 15th in the 100-meter dash (13.73), Brooke Hodkiewicz was 12th in the 1600 (5:52.53), and Hailey Delzer placed 14th in the 3200 (13:36.21).

Brianna Delzer was the only senior of the Panther girls.

On the boys side, Adams was also 10th in the 3200-meter run (10:32.74). Senior Noah Hirst was 14th in the 100-meter dash (11.87) and 11th in the 4x100 relay (46.10) with Devon Dorn, Isaac Bramer, and Conner Wilquet.

Mitch Kallies took 11th in the discus (129-7) and a 4x800 team of senior Grant Yuma and three freshmen - Griffin Kopke, Emerson Rice, and Ben Adams - was 13th (9:07.65).



Area D3 Athletes Have

Strong Showings at

Rosholt Sectional


The M&O Conference produced a strong showing at the Division 3 Track & Field Sectional in Rosholt on Thursday, and as a result, the conference will send athletes to state competition in 17 events.

The conference produced two winners. Coleman's Kiersten Jensen won the discus throw with a 121-foot, three-inch throw and a boys 4x800 relay team from Gillett consisting of Evan Peterson, Alex Peterson, Connor Hanson, and Ben Matczak won the race in 8 minutes, 24.97 seconds.

The top four finishers from each event moved on to state, which will be held Friday and Saturday at UW-La Crosse.

Alex Peterson also advanced in the 3200-meter run, taking second in the field (9:41.7). Evan Peterson was fifth in the 800-meter run (2:05.78) and Hanson was seventh in the 400 (53.26).

Jensen's Coleman teammate Sylvia Fochesato will compete at state in both hurdle events after she took second in the 300-meter event (47.74) and third in the 100-meter (16.08). Florence-Niagara's Kamdan Johnson was a narrow miss in the 100-meter hurdles, taking fifth with a time of 16.37 seconds, but Johnson will still head to state in the 400-meter dash, where she took third in 1:01.23.

Coleman's Corrin Liptak took second in the long jump (16-5.5).

Florence-Niagara will send Patrick Milan in the 200-meter dash after he took third (22.95), as well as Blake Smith, who was fourth in the 300-meter hurdles (41.22) and long jump (19-8.5). Smith was fifth in the 110-meter hurdles (15.93), barely missing out on qualification in three events. Milan took sixth in the 100 (11.44).

For the Crivitz boys, Evander Lawrence took fourth in the 100-meter dash (11.36) and Karson Bins came in third in the pole vault (12-6). Lawrence was fifth in the long jump (19-6.75).

Senya Caine will represent the Wolverines in the girls 100-meter dash after she took fourth (13.10). Caine missed in the 200-meter by one spot (27.24). Isabella Galindo will join her after finishing second in the pole vault (9-6).

Suring's Christine Sleeter is state-bound in the high jump and pole vault after a jump of 5-2 and a vault of 8-9. Eva Brooks of Lena/Saint Thomas Aquinas Academy was sixth in the high jump (5').

Lena/STAA's Natalie McNurlen took fourth in the triple jump to book her state ticket (34-11.75).

A Lena/STAA 4x100 relay of Josh Kristof, Lane Whiting, Max Beyer, and Sam Marquardt was fifth (45.16).

Oconto's Leah Allan, Gracie Simon, Kyanne Wusterbarth, and Hannah Moe took fifth in the 4x200 (1:51.6). Allan, Lianna Baxter, Simon, and Moe were sixth in the 4x400 (4:23.29).

Among the other near misses:

Gillett's Cheyenne Krueger was seventh in the girls pole vault (8'). A Tiger team of Kasey Hansen, Carleigh Kaczmarek, Angela Mosconi, and Ryann Wagner was sixth in the 4x800 (10:41.16). Moscini and Wagner were eighth and ninth in the 3200, respectively (12:48.36, 12:49.58).

Suring's Olivia Noack took sixth in the 800 (2:32.92). Coleman's Liptak was eighth in the 100-meter dash (13.91).

Suring pole vaulter Jeremy Hensel took seventh on the boys side (11-6). Kadin Baxter took eighth in the 800 (2:09.55).

Menominee Maroon athletes competed at Thursday's Great Northern Conference Championship in Marquette, taking fourth of five teams.

Escanaba's girls won the team title and Marquette was the top scoring boys team.

Menominee's girls tied Kingsford for fourth. Hayden Buck took second in the 800-meter run (2:39.76) and came in sixth in the 400 (1:11.09). She ran on a second-place 4x400 team with Attica Brandt, Anna Nerat, and Erin Schuettpeltz (4:37.73). The same team was fourth in the 4x200 (2:01.51).

Nerat took fourth in the high jump (4-8), Schuettpeltz was fourth in the 200 (29.03), and Brandt came in third in the 1600-meter run (6:10.32).

The Maroon boys finished ahead of Escanaba. The individual standout for Menominee was Brady Schultz, who won the high jump with a leap of six feet, four inches. He also ran on two second-place relays and a third-place relay. In the 4x200 and 4x400, both of which took second, he ran with seniors Eric Brown, Dawson Allgeyer, and Aidan Bellisle, finishing in 1:36.42 and 3:39.34, respectively.

In the 4x100, Schultz, Allgeyer, Bellisle, and JR Tryan were third (47.61).
