Track Season Approaches
by Katie Hill
Excitement for the oncoming
Track and Field season, which occurs this spring, is mounting.
“We have some great upperclassmen athletes and a lot of very
good underclassmen as well! It
will be a competitive year in track
and field this year” said sprint
coach Jill Kincaid.
Last season ended with many
athletes making it to sectionals.
The boys’ 4 x 4 to state succeeded
again to make it to the competition. Last year, current Senior
Vaughn Weis made it to state in
the open 400 meter and current
senior Ellie Grandi won state in
the high jump.
Kincaid said that she thinks the
biggest challenge this year will be
to motivate the athletes. “It is a
difficult thing to do because I am
in charge of all sprinters - that
means JV and varsity and boys
and girls. I want everyone to
improve and grow and it is hard to
give equal attention to all of them
when I am in charge of such a large
group of athletes.“
Junior distance runner Megan
Lois said, “I’m looking forward to
the upcoming season to get back in
shape and the new competition.”
Kincaid also said the team
needs to work on committing to
the coaches decisions regarding
meet placement. A problem, she
says, is when the coaches make
the lineup and then the day of the
meet many students switch events
with each other. She continued to
explain that the students need to
trust the judgment of the coaches
and have an understanding of what
activity they’ve been assigned to.
Lois said, “I am ready to challenge
myself and work hard to hopefully
make it to state in the 4 x 800.”
Kincaid added, “My goal for
this year is to have eight sprinters make it to state. Last year I
had just three sprinters make it to
state. I want eight this year!”

Blizzard of ‘11
Surely all other winter storms in the foreseeable future
will be compared to the wrath of the blizzard that Wisconsin and Illinois experienced early February. Here are
a few quick facts:
- the number of Wisconsites who died in the storm
- the estimated cost to
cities, per inch, for snowfall removal and city repair
- inches of snow in Milwaukee
