I know this sectional was talked about quite a bit and how stacked it was, but having watched the races live I just want to give some credit to all of the runners in those races. I am a huge track fan and have seen 1000’s of races over the years and all three of those races were beyond exciting. To end up having the top five times in the state in the 1600, top three times in the state in the 800 and top SIX times in the state in the 3200 is extremely impressive. The 1600 especially, with all the guys being fresh, was like a state meet with the times that were run and the competitiveness that was shown. Nobody was backing down from Carl Hirsch, but Carl was determined not to give anyone else the win, even knowing he had two more tough races to come. Johnson looked like a defending state champion in the 800, but Hirsch showed he wants to win all three at state and Dusing let us know he will be in the mix also. In the 3200, Hirsch showed what a beast he is, but Campbell, Floyd-Mews and Woodford all coming off of a tough 1600, made sure the race would be fast and that they would all be going to state. Salmon and Paikowski were the two fresh ones and put themselves right in the mix and showed that they more than belong at state.
WELL DONE Waukesha North Sectional. As a fan, I truly appreciated those races.
