While the St. Mary’s Springs track teams didn’t both repeat as conference champs, the Ledgers still had a big day in Monday’s Flyway meet held at Omro.
Springs’ girls won a second-straight conference title with a dominant performance, and the boys took second in the eight-team event. The Ledger girls scored 141 points, which were 28 more than Mayville. Laconia was fourth (87).
The pole vault competition will be completed Tuesday.
Springs’ girls won seven events. Sophomore Liz Bohn and senior Abby Busse each won two. Bohn took the 400 and 800-meter, while Busse claimed the 1,600 and 3,200. Melanie Schneider had the other individual win with the triple jump. Two relay teams also had victories — the 4×100 team of Bailey Hoch, Sami Grebe, Megan McGovern and Schneider and the 4×800 team of Bohn, Busse, Paige Case and Alannah Schmitz.
Mayville won three events, all thanks to senior Shannon Wagner. She won the 100, 200 and long jump.
Laconia’s girls had a victory in the 4×200 with the team of Lindsey Frieler, Brynn Lemond, Ashley Pluim and Alex Wegner.
On the boys’ side, Springs was 32 points behind KML despite winning eight events. Senior Darin Ward had another big night, winning four individual events. He took the 110 hurdles, 300 hurdles, long jump and triple jump. Fellow senior Ryan Grandlic won the 400, while sophomore Andrew Skiff won the 800. Springs’ 4×100 and 4×400 teams also were conference champs.
Laconia’s boys placed third, while Winnebago Lutheran and Mayville took fifth and sixth.
