Auburndale girls ninth, Stratford boys 16th at 2016 WIAA State Cross Country Championships

WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The Auburndale girls wanted to improve on last year’s appearance at state, and it did, moving up four spots in the Division 3 team standings at the 2016 WIAA State Cross Country Championships on Saturday at the Ridges Golf Course.

Auburndale finished ninth out of the 16 teams in the Division 3 field after taking 13th last year. The Apaches finished with 236 points, 22 behind eighth-place Glenwood City. Darlington took the team title and Noelle Maire of Belleville won the race in 19:12.79.

Isabella Jewell, like she has done all season, led the Apaches. She finished 53rd in 21:15.74, which was six seconds slower than her time last year at state. As a whole though, Auburndale improved with three others finishing in the top 100. Kali Karl was 79th (21:53), Vanessa Mitchell took 81st (21:54) and Anna Kollross was 92nd (22:10) for the Apaches.

The Stratford boys also had an eye on the improving from an 11th-place finish at state last year, but came up short, taking 16th.

Cade Lehman led the Tigers, finishing 72nd in 18:03.21. Isaac Guyer was the next Tiger to cross the finish line, taking 123rd in 19:01.05.

“As coaches, we knew if our top two runners weren’t in the top 30 overall places, we would probably finish 16th as a team,” Stratford coach Mark Guderski said. “When (No. 2 runner) Lucas Heidmann dropped out of the race to a back injury, we were going to finish last as a team. But, our goal from the beginning of the year was to make it to state and that’s what the boys did.

“All of our runners didn’t run well and, so we as coaches will re-evaluate last week’s practices to see what we can change to do better at state. Even though we finished last at state, we still finished 16th out of 152 schools in Division 3 and that’s what we will tell our boys at our award banquet. I told them they should be proud how they didn’t give up on their goal and try not to remember what happened at state, but how they got to state and the good times they had together as a team.”

Darlington won the D-3 boys team title for the sixth year in a row, with David Vannucchi of Onalaska Luther winning the race in 15:59.33.

Sun Prairie (Division 1) and East Troy (Division 2) won the other girls team titles, with Madison West (Division 1) and Lakeland (Division 2) taking the other boys team championships.

For many of the Auburndale girls and Stratford boys cross country team members, going to the WIAA State Cross Country Meet is nothing new.

However, that doesn’t mean it is any less exciting.

The two local teams will make return trips to the state meet, competing at the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday, with hopes of improving on last year’s finish.

Four of the Stratford boys and three of the Auburndale girls will return to the state course, bringing experience, more confidence, and, hopefully, a better final result.

“For me, personally, it will calm me down more (returning to the state course), knowing I can start off this fast, I can push my pace this much,” said Auburndale’s Isabella Jewell, a sophomore, who finished fourth overall (20:11) at the WIAA Division 3 sectional at Nine Mile Recreation Area in Rib Mountain on Oct. 21. “With our experience, we can keep ourselves level, you could say, and hopefully we get a good ranking as a team.”

Senior Cade Lehman has been Stratford’s top runner all season, finishing fifth at Nine Mile sectional in 17:08. Fellow senior, Lucas Heidmann, was ninth overall at the sectional 21 seconds behind, providing the Tigers’ with a strong second runner.

Heidmann was 77th and Lehman 79th at the state meet last year as Stratford took 11th out of the 16 full teams in the Division 3 boys field. Seniors Chris Zuelke and Issac Guyer are also returning to state for the Tigers, with freshman Isaac Thompson, sophomore Sam Schoenfuss and senior Jacob Danen rounding out the team’s seven-runner lineup.

Stratford’s one senior last year, John Geissinger, obviously graduated. But the Tigers had more turnover, with two of its top eight runners not going out for the team, and another transferring schools.

“We knew it would be tough to get this group to state again,” Stratford coach Mark Guderski said. “Each meet they set small goals, such as beat Columbus at the Auburndale Invite, beat or be close to Marathon at conference, beat Prentice/Rib Lake at conference.

“They concentrated on each meet and used each meet as a stepping stone to get themselves to state. We set one team goal: to do better than last year’s 11th-place finish.”

The Auburndale girls were 13th in the Division 3 girls standings last year, and as with Stratford, have their collective eyes on moving up this time around.

Along with Jewell, sophomore Anna Kollross and junior Kali Karl are back to represent the Apaches. Karl, in fact, is making her third state appearance after being an individual qualifier as a freshman in 2014.

Fourth-year coach Joren Anderson said the Apaches have a strategy of trying to stay in a pack as much as possible, and stay calm among the sea of runners in such a big race.

“We’ve talked about not starting out too fast and sticking together as a team, and knowing their pace instead of what’s going on around them,” Anderson said. “We want to improve upon last year. We hope we can be competitive for the top half. From looking at times, it seems like a realistic goal. The older ones can hopefully help pace our younger ones, because it’s a whole new experience for our freshmen.”

Freshmen Vanessa Mitchell and Taylor Stanton, and sophomore Julianna Kollross also finished in the top 24 at the sectional, along with Jewell, Anna Kollross, and Karl, to make the state appearance possible. Freshman Emmalee Richardson finishes off the Apaches roster that will be competing.

“We had really good competition (against us) and were really fighting to make it to state again,” Jewell said. “We really worked hard and pushed each other, and ourselves, to our limits. It’s so exciting to see our work pay off and for us to make it to state.”
