The PDC Track team kicked off the spring sports season indoors at the 16 team Tri-State large school invite hosted at UW-Platteville this Friday. While teams ease their way into the season with these indoor meets, it’s a great way to see where you are at against some great D1 and tough SWC schools.
The PDC girls came looking to prove last year’s 2nd place performance was not a fluke, and the boys came looking to have a day of their own against some great competition.  
The girls were able to squeak past Waunakee for a 2nd place finish with 56.50 points, despite missing a large number of our athletes. The boys competed, but not to the level they wanted coming in 8th with 33 points.
The championship performance is the gold standard in our program. That is achieving one of three things. The most sought after of these three is setting a PR as that is the true measure of growth- bettering yourself. We also award championship performances for scoring points for the team, or winning your event.
Deserving of special mention in these championship performances are Taia Dressler, winning the high jump and qualifying for a MileSplit “elite performance” at 5’0. The girls 4x400 getting out of their comfort zone with a gutsy effort to secure a plaque. Blake Thiry for setting 4 PR’s in route to two event wins.
