Area Athletes Head to LaCrosse for State Meet

Issue Date: May 29, 2019

Bulldogs & Marines Earn Start Times in Six Events

Peshtigo's Max Rauch will have a chance to defend his Division II pole vault title in 2019 after a 14-foot jump at the Freedom Sectional on Thursday.

Rauch won state last season and he's headed back again.

"It was a good day, a much more consistent day than Monday," coach Ted Rauch, Max's father, said. "Good to see hard work paying off. I'm very proud of him, very consistent and starting to look the way he needs to look to repeat from last year. That's always the goal. You could tell he loosened up a lot today after we got down to four and he knew he made it and that's the key for him: just to stay relaxed, vault like he can vault and just have a good day."

Joining Rauch at state is teammate Mitchell VanVooren, who won the 110-meter hurdles (14.61) and took second in the 300-meter hurdles (38.24).

Coach Joe Nault credited VanVooren's win to his strong start. In the 300-meter, he got caught at the end, something that he'll look to improve in the longer race.

"His start's getting better every race and that's one of the things we've been working on this year he attacks the hurdles," Nault said. "The better he gets, the faster he gets to that first hurdle, the faster his time is and he's getting quicker and quicker."

Also heading to state are Cole Trimberger, who took third in the 400-meter dash (51.21). Trimberger focused his energy on the 400-meter and stopped running the 1600-meter run, and it paid off.

"A couple weeks ago, Cole approached me and said, "hey, I just think I want to do this open four and put the mile behind behind me,' and he's put his heart and mind into it," Nault said. "You can see it. He's been working on his block starts, he's been working on his first curve and that last 100 meters was all heart, it was great."

Reid Marquardt, who won the 800-meter run (1:58.31).

"Reid has really matured in that race and I think everyone knows that last 200 meters of that race is his," Nault said. "He's just got to pull the trigger at the right time and it was very, very well run. He ran that really smart and that resulted in a big personal record for him."

Jerod Jandt was 11th in the 200-meter dash (23.60).

Jandt is headed to state, however, in the 4x400 relay with teammates VanVooren, Trimberger and Marquardt (3:26.85), all guys who made it in other events.

"Those guys are going out there busting PRs, not just getting through to state but having huge personal records and then they go and run like that," Nault said. "That being said, a couple of those handoffs could have been better and we could have run a second or so quicker, but to cap a day like that was awesome. I'm really proud of them."

In the 4x200 relay, Peshtigo's boys team took 11th (1:35.03). A 4x800 team took 11th as well (8:42.93).

Peshtigo's 4x400 girls team took 13th (4:27.14).

For Marinette, four runners are headed to state in open events, along with two relays.

Emma Wendt is headed to state in the 100-meter hurdles with a fourth-place finish (16.46).

"We knew if we could get her a good, solid start, she was going to drop some time there and she was going to give herself a really good opportunity. We messed with her blocks a little bit, with her start height and it really started her out nice today," Marinette coach Bryan Lenzner said.

Alex Shaw is going in the 100-meter dash after finishing fourth (11.34). His start was important as well for another reason. It's one thing he'll be looking to clean up as he aims to climb the podium this weekend.

"He was a little lazy out of the blocks today but his time was enough to get him through. We're really excited to see what he can do down at state getting that starting stuff a little better," Lenzner said.

Carson Polomis is going in the 1600-meter run (4:32.91) with a fourth-place finish.

"Carson is an extremely smart runner. He's an extremely smart kid in general and he's come a long ways," Lenzner said. "He's now got that hunger and that drive to put him up there with that elite group and it showed today."

Katelyn Kitzinger booked her spot in the 400-meter dash (1:00.65). Lenzner called her performance "all heart" and "all guts," praising her toughness in the race.

Polomis added a 12th-place finish in the 3200-meter run as well (10:29.20) and Kitzinger took 12th in the 800 (2:36.50). The decision to take Shaw out of the 200 and put him in both spring relays paid off big for the Marines.

A Marinette team of Darrell Dufeck, Jeremy Wendt, Anthony Jardeen and Shaw took second in the 4x200 (1:31.42). A 4x100 team of Sam Drees, Dufeck, Shaw and Jardeen was also a qualifier with a second-place finish (43.95).

Lenzner said he's excited to see what his relay teams can do at state as well.

Wendt just missed state in the 110-meter hurdles, taking fifth (15.57).

Sherrie Wu took ninth in the 100-meter dash (13.41), Lindsey Wingender was 10th in the discus throw (106') and Kimberly Carviou was sixth in the 800-meter (2:24.62).

In the girls' 4x200 relay, a Marinette team was 13th (1:55.69). A girls 4x100 team took 10th (52.89).A 4x400 team took ninth (4:15.95).

For Oconto Falls' boys, Dakota Carriveau was sixth in the shot put (49-6), Colton Rohr was seventh in the discus throw (142'), Brent Wolf took ninth in the 300-meter hurdles (41.83) and Aaron Gonnering took 15th in the 200-meter dash (24.36).

For the Panther girls, Kari Albrecht was second in the 100-meter hurdles (16.05). She will be the lone Panther representing the team at state.

Autumn Canavera was seventh in the 400-meter dash (1:04.26), seventh in the 800-meter run (2:29.03) and 13th in the triple jump (31-3.75), Brianna Delzer was 16th in the shot put (30-4), Katie Kurth was 13th in the 100-meter dash (13.81) and Emily Gonnering took 14th in the discus throw (95-11).

Oconto Falls' 4x100 team was eighth (52.59).
