Track Begins!

Spring is finally here and so is track and field season at Memorial!


Track practices were off and running on March 5th and more than 200 athletes braved the cold temperatures (and even snow!) to get ready for another great season. Thankfully, the first meet of the season was indoors at the University of Dubuque. Girls competed on Friday, March 16th, and the boys team competed the following morning. Here are some highlights from two days of great competition:  

  • Our girls JV team finished in second place with a score of 40 points.  
  • Sophomore Reette Thorns won the Varsity shot put.  
  • Senior Lexi Zach got 2nd place in the Varsity triple jump.  
  • The boys Varsity 4×400 relay (Braun, Drewry, Young, and Knoche) got 3rd place.  
  • Senior Kevin Tatooles got 2nd place in the Varsity Pole Vault.
