Shot-putters Terron McCall, junior, and Luka Ivancevic, sophomore, pose for the picture at their last indoor meet.

Boys track wrapped up another indoor season on Saturday, April 6. The Highlanders sent 17 athletes to indoor state at UW-Whitewater.

One of the athletes, Jack Ferguson, sophomore, ran hurdles at state.

“I think the team did pretty good at state because we were very close to scoring more points and everyone ran very well,” Ferguson said.

Coach Micah Adams was optimistic about the potential of the team this season.

“We have a chance to do something really great as a team, make some noise,” he said.

The Highlanders found success in many ways.

“I am proud of how many of the kids on our team broke lots of PR’s and school records,” Ferguson said.

Coach Drew Dixon was also proud of his athletes.

“We hosted three meets, a mixture of varsity and JV where we fared really well, a lot of improvement, a lot of PR’s,” Coach Dixon said.

A bright spot of the season was when Sean O’Byrne, junior, broke a 12-year old record in the 55-meter dash this season.

“He works exceptionally hard and is a talented kid,” Dixon said.

Although some athletes stood out, the boys track team focused on making a team culture this year.

“We’ve got a lot of guys that can be team contributors that are stepping up into bigger roles,” Coach Adams said.

“The team attitude has been really great and has come a long way in a couple years. I think we have a group right now that wants to support each other, wants to help each other,” Coach Dixon said.
