Cashton student athletes have had an impressive spring. Over the past week we have collected three regional championships. On Tuesday, May 22nd the girls track and field team won their fourth consecutive regional championship. Led by a balanced group of contributors the girls won the regional with an impressive score of 154 points. The girls scored 58 points more than the next closest competitor. On Thursday, May 24th the girls competed in the sectional meet. Despite some rough weather that caused a long delay six girls qualified for the state track and field meet. Best of luck to Sarah Gronemus (4x800, 1600 M), Amerila Korn (4x800), Betsy Schreier (Triple Jump, 4x800), Chloe Kaiser (4x800), Amber Dahl (100H, 300H, and 4x800), and Marisa Schaldach (4x800) as they travel to state competition today. If you can not attend the meet it can be followed live on www.foxsportswisconsin.com.
The next team to raise some hardware was the baseball team. The team completed the regular season as Scenic Bluffs Conference champions. So far in the playoffs the team has posted wins over Royall (18-4) and Brookwood (12-2). The sectional tournament will be held on Tuesday, June 5th. The Eagles will play Pittsville at 10 am in Wilton. If they win, the sectional final is at 4:00 pm.
The softball team has come on very strong at the end of the season. They finished second in the Scenic Bluffs conference and entered the regional as the third seed. Their playoff run has included wins for Royall (10-0), Wonewoc-Center (3-1), and New Lisbon (5-2). The win over top-seeded New Lisbon was especially sweet because it avenged two previous losses this year to the Rockets. The sectional tournament will be held on Monday, June 4th. The Eagles will play Cochran-Fountain City at 4:00 pm in Pepin. If they win the sectional final is Thursday, June 7th at 4:00 pm in Boscobel.
