Girls Track Takes First Place at Hilbert and Oostburg to Begin Outdoor Season
The Lancer girls track and field team took first place at both of their quadrangular meets last week. Tuesday's meet at Hilbert featured first place finishes by our Lady Lancers in seven events, while on Thursday we captured nine first place event finishes at Oostburg.
Due to wet field conditions, only two of the normal six field events were held in Hilbert. Seniors MonRaye Ermis and Emma Kolar won those events, with Ermis taking first in the shot put with a 38' 3.5" throw, and Kolar jumping 4'6" to take first in the high jump. Senior Brooklyn Luebke won two events, taking the 1600m run in 5:40.42 and the 800m run in 2:34.39, finishing each twenty seconds faster than her nearest competitor. Other first places were won by senior Emily Marohn in the 300m hurdles (50.97), sophomore Peyton Luebke in the 200m (30.81), and our 4x400m relay team of freshmen Maren Dewane, Addie Korte, Ginevra Ermis, and Bitsy Blauert (4:46.63).
Second places at Hilbert were won by senior Emma Miller in the high jump (4' 4"), Marohn in the 110m hurdles (17.75), Korte in the shot put (31' 3"), and our 4x200m relay team of junior Lydia Schulz and freshmen Dewane, Selah Schulz and Bitsy Blauert (2:02.36). Senior Grace Zander took third in the 800m (2:57) and junior Lizzy Kolar took third in the 1600m run (6:41). The Lancer girls team finished with 68 points, two points ahead of St. Mary Catholic. The third and fourth place teams were Mishicot and Hilbert.
Thursday in Oostburg, all track and field events were able to be run, albeit in wet and cold conditions. The Lancer girls took first with 87 points; Oostburg was second with 65; and Kohler and Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah were in third and fourth places, respectively. Brooklyn Luebke and Emily Marohn were double event winners. Luebke captured first in the 800m (2:32.97) and the 1600m (5:37.51), while Marohn took first in the 300m hurdles (52.81) and the long jump (15' 10"). Other firsts were won by junior Isabella Blauert in the 200m (30.2), MonRaye Ermis in the shot put (35' 0"), Emma Kolar in the triple jump (29' 9"), and our 4x100m (56.15) and 4x200m (2:00.2) relay teams with the same four runners in each: Isabella Blauert, Peyton Luebke, Bitsy Blauert, and Maren Dewane. Second places were won by Addie Korte in the 400m (1:10.68) and the shot put (30' 3"), MonRaye Ermis in the discus (85' 3"), Emma Kolar in the 100m hurdles (19.4), and our 4x800m relay (12:11) of Lizzy Kolar, Grace Zander, and freshmen Trisha Kiss and Bella Flores. Capturing third places were Lizzy Kolar in the discus (75' 6"), Emma Miller in the long jump (12' 5"), and Ginevra Ermis in the 200m (30.77). Full results are available on athletic.net.
Coach Abbey Bubolz commented on the first two outdoor meets, "Performances on Thursday were in the rain for most of the evening. The athletes had great attitudes and embraced the weather. They understand how valuable it is for us to be on a track, good or bad weather. Plus, sometimes our big meets at the end of the year aren't in perfect weather so we learned how to prepare properly for less than ideal conditions. Our team place in these small meets does not impact end of season results. Our objectives at these meets are to get comfortable with doing things on a track such as handoffs, hurdles, and cut-ins, things that we cannot completely replicate at school. Also, we use these as time trials to determine our best line up for bigger invites later in the season. Additionally, we also use these small meets to help the athletes experience a variety of events. It helps them gain confidence and continue to build technical skills in their events."
The Lancer track and field teams have one meet on the schedule this week, a five-team meet of Big East schools Tuesday at Random Lake at 4:30pm. The Lancer girls will be trying to stay undefeated against other Big East teams this season. Other schools at the meet include Cedar Grove-Belgium, Sheboygan Lutheran, and Oostburg. Come to Random Lake to cheer our Lancer tracksters on to great performances!
Boys Track Competes Well; Takes Third Place at Outdoor Meets
The Lancer boys track team finished third at each of their meets last week to start the outdoor track season.
Tuesday at a quadrangular meet at Hilbert in which only two of the normal six field events were held due to poor field conditions, the Lancer boys won two events, with freshman Ryder Vogt taking first in the high jump with a 5' 0" jump, while the Lancers 4x100m relay team of senior Sho Fukasawa, juniors Caleb Uhlhorn and Luke Nikolai, and sophomore Kaeden Storzer took first in 49.27. The Lancers also captured three second places: junior Seth Ciha in the 1600m (5:23.88), freshman Braden Revak in the 800m (2:37.85), and our 4x200m relay (1:44.69) of senior Chase Loeh, junior Kaden Hagenow, Uhlhorn, and Storzer. Third places were won by senior Shawn Egerer in the 3200m run (11:31.84), junior Aiden Wagner in the high jump (4' 8"), and the 4x400m relay team (4:03.44) of Ciha, Hagenow, sophomore Jon Thoma, and freshman Joey Ungemach. Hilbert won the meet with 88.5 points, SMC had 49, while we collected 38 points, ahead of Mishicot's 11.5.
Thursday in Oostburg the Lancer boys collected five second places and one third place to help earn a total of 36 points. Taking second were Sho Fukasawa in the 100m (11.88), Seth Ciha in the 800m (2:28.41) and three relay teams. Kaden Hagenow was in all three relays, and he was joined by Caleb Uhlhorn and Kaeden Storzer in the 4x100 (49.26) and in the 4x200 (1:43.03). Also in the 4x100 was Sho Fukasawa, while Chase Loeh was the fourth runner in the 4x200.

More Baseball and Softball Games Postponed/Cancelled Due to Weather
Our Lancer batters are still waiting to get onto the field to start their seasons, as once again all baseball and softball games on the schedule last week were canceled or postponed due to weather or field conditions.
Baseball Head Coach Paul Durkee recommends that parents, students and fans keep their eyes on the MLHS social media pages for game changes and updates, and added, "Other than that, be ready for lots of games per week once we get to play!!" The Lancer varsity baseball team is hoping to open the season at Oostburg Tuesday for a 4:30pm game. If that game gets canceled or rescheduled, then they'll hope to play this Thursday in the Green Bay Booyah's stadium at 4:30pm against Mishicot. Our JV baseball team has the opposite schedule, hosting Oostburg at 4:30pm on Tuesday, and then playing at Mishicot on Thursday at 4:30pm.
The girls varsity fastpitch softball team is also scheduled to play at Oostburg at 4:30pm Tuesday, and then has a home game against Mishicot on Thursday at 4:30pm. Our JV softball team opens its season with a 5:45pm game tonight (Monday) at Valders, and then plays Thursday at 4:30pm at Mishicot.
Please use the MLHS online calendar, the individual sports calendars below, or check our social media pages to stay up-to-date on all athletic cancellations and postponements. We pray for competition to start soon for our baseball and softball teams; come and support your Lancer teams!
