Long distance events have racked up points for the Ozaukee High School boys’ track and field team this season, and last Friday was a prime example.

The Warriors went 1-2-3 in the 3,200 meters, first, fourth and sixth in the 1,600 and the 3,200 relay team continues to speed past its competition in winning again.

Ozaukee scored 91.5 points and finished in third place of 10 schools, some larger of which compete in Division 1 and 2.

Junior Owen Klaus won the 1,600 in 4 minutes, 48.97 seconds and the 800 in 2:03.26.

Calvin McKee won the 3,200 in 10:13.57, followed by Tyler Mueller in 10:39.17 and Aaron Nehls in 10:39.19.

The 3,200 relay of Mueller, Nehls, McKee and Klaus won in 8:34.92.

“The boys 4x800-meter relay has continued to cruise to first place finishes this year with another first place finish in windy conditions,” coach Andew Pfeuffer said.

Riley Borchardt was fourth in the 1,600 in 5:13.68 and Brice Schueller was sixth in 5:20.47.

“Our distance boys have done a great job so far this season and are really fun to work with because they are constantly pushing each other to become better everyday in practice,” Pfeuffer said.

Mason Norwood was third in high jump at 5 feet, 6 inches, and fourth in long jump at 17-9.5.

“Mason is continuing to gain confidence every meet and exciting to watch compete each week,” Pfeuffer said.

Mueller was fourth in the 200 in 55.68, and Austin Lemke was fourth in discus with 119-5. Otto Utecht was sixth in discus at 114-3 and in high jump at 5-4.

Hilbert won with 147.5 points. Sheboygan North had 126. Behind Ozaukee, St. Mary Catholic had 84.5. No other team scored more than 58 points.

Hoffmann stands out for Warrior girls

Sophomore Becky Hoffmann continues to outjump and outrun competitors. She won the 400 in 1:04.6, the 300 hurdles in 49.3 and was second in the 100 hurdles in 16.74.

“Becky has been working hard and taking on a tough trio of events the last two invites. It is really difficult to run a fast 400 and then come back two races later and run fast again in the 300 hurdles,” Pfeuffer said. “ It just goes to show how tough Becky is mentally and physically that she can handle it so well.”

That helped the Warriors to 94 points and fourth place.

Freshman Paige Kurlinski won shot put at at personal record 36-9.25. Morgan Kirmse was second at 34-11.

Clara McKee was second in the 1,600 in 5:54.92 and in the 3,200 in 13:17.1.

Brynn Meyer, who Pfeuffer said is continuing to get healthy, was second in triple jump at 31-2 and third in long jump at 15-5.

Addison Schubert was fourth in the 800 in 2:53.67 and in the 1,600 in 6:16.46.

Adeline Utecth was fourth in discus at 89-2 and eighth in shot put at 31-6.

Kaylee Steadman was seventh in discus at 85-7.

Sheboygan North won with 119 points, followed by Suring’s 113.5 and St. Mary Catholic’s 107. After Ozaukee, Kaukana had 65 points. No other team had more than 60.

“The girls are continuing to work on getting healthy and preparing for the fun part of the season,” Pfeuffer said.

The Warriors were to compete in the Random Lake quint on Tuesday before the Big East Conference meet at Reedsville on Monday, May 16.
