KP-WC Boys Track

By Jameson Mandl

 

“It wasn’t the most ideal weather for the Western Valley Conference meet,” says Woodbury Central junior Ethan Schultzen, “but it was the same for everyone.”  

The cool, rainy and cloudy weather didn’t stop the KP-WC boys track team from winning its fifth consecutive Conference title. “Our team has worked very hard this season to win Conference for the fifth year in a row,” says sophomore Ben Burbach. “We’re still working hard to send runners to State.”

The team's many great performances that day added to an overall score of 209 points. First place finishes were Nic Scheelhaase- Open 800M, Jordan Laddusaw- 110M hurdles, Alec Still-1600M run, Ryan Fouts- 3200M run, Joe Hayden- 400M hurdles, Levi Paulsen- Discus, Nick Phelps- Shot put, 4x200M relay, 4x400M relay, 4x800M relay, and the 1600M distance medley relay.

The State qualifying meet is May 14 in Kingsley. 



Mandl
Athlete of the Week

By Becca Gebel

            Coach Bahrke, Woodbury Central’s boys' track coach, identifies senior Jameson Mandl as a "hard-working, versatile and unselfish teammate who has a positive attitude."

            According to Coach, “Jameson decided during his junior year to participate in track. He has steadily improved and is an important part of our successful team." In early May, Jameson set personal records in both the 400 and the 800, Coach explains and then adds, "His willingness to run different races speaks to his unselfish attitude. He will be greatly missed next year." 


KP-WC Track

By Halle Still

People who walk through the Kingsley Pierson High School this spring will notice several athletes running from hall to hall. The KP-WC track team started track practice on March 3, and due to the cold weather, the runners have been doing workouts in the KP hallways as well as other indoor places until the weather warms up.

The workouts early in the season include running halls, completing stations and working on proper running form. On March 9, the weather got warmer and track athletes were able to run outside and time themselves with cone drills. The purpose for cone drills is to make sure the runners maintain the right pace for the races they run. Senior Nic Scheelhaase comments, “Cone drills are good workouts that help with speed and footwork.”

The KP-WC boy’s team is coached by Jarrod Schott and Karl Bahrke; the girl’s team is coached by Randy Weise and Alex Howrey.

Returning seniors for this track season are Ryan Fouts, Jameson Mandl, Landan Paulsen, Levi Paulsen, Nic Scheelhaase, Jayden Wurth and Halle Still, Kristin Hubert and Kassie Bain.
