Her leadership and experience kept our pack together and it was so awesome to see six girls running stride for stride at the front for a majority of the race. Alyana twisted her ankle in the last meters, but still pushed as hard as she could to get to the finish line in fourth overall. In the JV 2 competition Memorial was victorious. Memorial placed 1,3,4,7,10 for 25 points to squeak by West which placed 2,5,6,8,9 and accumulated 30 points.
Amelie Hirscher placed first overall in a lifetime PR of Ann Kerr 3rd Lifetime PRs were achieved by: Anna Vander Meer All in all, I thought our team did an excellent job this week preparing mentally and physically for this race.

Madison Memorial had 59 finishers, with 22 achieving lifetime PRs, and 34 reaching seasons best performances. Great job to all that participated. The varsity race was next and this promised to be our biggest test of the season as several state ranked teams in the Wisconsin Cross Country Coaches Association rankings were in attendance at Arrowhead.
We knew going in that the difference between finishing first and tenth wasn't going to be much, and it was a little bit of a disappointment to finish in fifth. The girls put themselves in position through two miles, but just didn't finish the job as we easily dropped 30 points in the last mile.
That said, we did celebrate some fast races as Gabri Gaines finished seventh overall with a PR of Alice House was again our 2 finishing in 29th place with a Senior Claire Reid ran a tough race finishing in 41st place Natalie Rhodes, completed our team score by finishing 52n in Natalie struggled over the last mile, but put herself in a position to succeed early, which is what we need to be doing if we will accomplish our goals at the end of the season. Seniors Kari Larsen Heavy rains overnight and rainy conditions as teams arrived promised slippery and muddy conditions on one of the already toughest courses we run.
Heading into the race, we knew the competition was going to be high, as we would see Sun Prairie, Madison West, Middleton, Verona from our conference, along with two other great teams in Stoughton and Monona Grove. Our goal heading in to the race was to take advantage of the downhills and moving up during the race. We had no idea regarding what other teams had so we emphasized controlling what we can control.
Overall, the coaches were pleased with the performance of varsity.2011 Wisconsin State Cross Country Meet
Our team finished in third place with points, behind runner-up Madison West 94and champion Sun Prairie We had Gabri, Alice, Annika, who had never run this course before, and Kayla, Kari, and Annika who have never participated in a varsity race before.
Gabri once again led the way for us running to a sixth place finish overall in a PR of Gabri, once again executed her race plan to perfection, as she moved up late in the race and unleashed a massive finishing kick to catch three great runners.

Gabri has established herself as one of the elite runners in the area. Alice was next in 21st place. Alice raced her heart out and was completely spent after the race. She moved up well throughout the first loop from the mid 40's to as high as 15th. The last meters for Alice were tough, but she competed all the way through the finish line and secured her second consecutive finish on the medal stand. Both of these ladies have been very consistent for us, but have even more left to give our team.
These two have continually challenged themselves in practice by taking on higher mileage options, and this will pay off for them later in the season.
Freshman, Annika Cutforth rounded out our top 5 with a 50th place finish and a one-second PR of Seniors Kari Larsen 65thand Kayla Ruplinger 74th competed well in their first varsity competition and held their varsity positions. There were total runners in the race.
In the Junior Varsity competition, the conditions were downright treacherous.

Although 25 runners needed medical attention, Bradley is says that Arrowhead High School was well prepared for the meet. There were no heat index warnings or cautions communicated from the school, the WIAA, the National Weather service or any other pertinent authority that mentioned extra measures would need to be taken. The best cure for most of the athletes was to have them sit in the shade with water or ice or a blanket to recover.
There are ways to avoid dehydration and loss of consciousness. According to Mayo Clinic, drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables high in water can prevent dehydration. Varsity runner Megan Olshanski ran the 5K in In this heat, Olshanski says she tries not to think about the weather in order to keep herself motivated.
My coach Curt Kaczor helps me so much mentally. He mainly tells me to trust in the training, and to have confidence to race against girls like Cami Davre. Heat wise, it was hard to mentally prepare because all of the JV girls said how hot and terrible it was. The four runners taken to the hospital were released before 9pm that same night. That cart is available to assist any runners during the race.
