Ozaukee High School’s track and field teams plan to do some hardware shopping this weekend, and the Warriors are in position to do just that.

The teams qualified 10 entries for the Division 3 state meet at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and broke four school records in the process.

“We have talked for a couple of weeks that we have not had a meet where we have knocked one out of the park yet, and they finally did on a day where it really matters,” coach Andrew Pfeuffer said.

“Our athletes are a tough and hard working group and it paid off for them.”

The girls are sending seven entries, including defending state champion Elise Large in the 1,600 and 3,200-meter races and Emma Richards in the shot put and discus.

At the Hilbert sectional on Thursday, Richards broke a school record in discus with a throw of 158 feet, 2 inches. She also won the shot put with a 44-0.25.

Large won the 1,600 in 5 minutes, 27.67 seconds and the 3,200 in 11:58.22.

Delanie McFadden won the 100 in 13.03 and 200 in 26.47.

The 3,200 relay team of Ashlee Mueller, Kelley Large, Amy Hoffmann and Jenna Schueller took third in 10:14.88, breaking the school record by three seconds that the team set earlier in the year.

The girls’ 1,600 relay team didn’t qualify in taking fifth place — the top four go to state — but it set a school record. Mueller, Allison Stahl, Hoffmann and Becca Schauer ran a 4:19.47.

Gavin Dorrler again stood out for the boys, setting a school record in winning the long jump with a 22-2. He took second in the high jump by clearing 6-0 and in the 200 in 22.96.

“Our goal is to always bring some hardware home.

We are set up well with our seed times and distances to do that; now we just have to continue to step up and perform well on the biggest stage. I think our athletes are primed and ready to go compete with the best in the state,” Pfeuffer said.

The girls team scored 78 points and finished in second place in the 28-team meet. Algoma won with 90.5.

Other top performances set or tied personal records: Kelley Large took fifth in the 3,200 (12:28.51); Schueller sixth in the 800 (2:33.91) and Caryn Hamm eighth in shot put (36-4.25).

The boys took eighth with 26 points. Cambridge won with 85.

Cedar Grove-Belgium’s dual record-holder Stephen Lavey qualified for the Division 2 state meet in the 1,600 and 3,200.

At the Freedom sectional on Thursday, Lavey took second in the 3,200 in 9:41.67 and fourth in the 1,600 in 4:23.2.

The boys scored 13 points to take 20th of 35 teams. Freedom won with 90.

The girls scored three points to take 25th. Xavier won with 85.

Karen Ibarra took sixth in the 800 in a personal record 2:31.58.
