The North Crawford girls track team advanced three athletes to the state track meet held in LaCrosse on June 2 and 3. Mother Nature served up plenty of sunshine and warmth for the meet.
First up in the long jump was Trojan sophomore Brianna Mack. With a career best jump of 16’6.5”, Brianna qualified for finals. This would be her best jump of day placing her tenth in the state in Division 3.
Next up on the track was sophomore Martha Bransky. Fighting an injured foot, Martha persevered through the 1600-meter run to finish 16th with a time of 5:55.09.
On Saturday, senior Maggie Schellhorn, competed in the pole vault. After competing at the state meet in the pole vault her freshman and sophomore years, Maggie experienced a season ending injury to her knee in gymnastics her junior year. This season, she fought her way back to qualify for the state meet for third year. In a very competitive pool of athletes, Maggie finished 15th with a vault of 8’6”.
“Although each of these girls would have liked to place better it is hard as a coach to be disappointed in the accomplishments they achieved to compete at this level,” coach Ed Heisz said later.
