2019 - Every Runner - Every Run - Every Day

THANK YOU for another great season. The 2019 season saw many positives as the boys worked hard all season long to reach their individual and team goals. Many personal records were accomplished due to hard work over the off season, consistent training during the season, and mental toughness on race day. The JV team won the Hadler Invite and City Championships and saw Henry B win the Hadler Invite & City while Cole W won the JV1 Big Eight meet. Dylan A was All-City while AJ K was All-Conference and earned a trip to the WIAA State Meet. We ran many miles, difficult workouts like the ladder & Rosa Hills, and dedicated ourselves to the team and our goals. As we look forward to the future we want to give a THANK YOU to our graduating seniors. The team in the good hands of the freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. We challenge the next group of JMM distance runners to make a plan and set a goal for next season. Through hard work and dedication the next season can be even better.

Team GPA - 3.531
For the tenth season in a row our team has exceeded our team goal for GPA (3.4 or higher). This was our 4th best performance in the last twelve years. KEEP WORKING HARD IN THE CLASSROOM!!! Our team has THREE student athletes with a perfect 4.0 GPA, who were joined by three other teammates for a perfect 4.0 GPA during the 1st quarter. 88.7% of our athletes met our individual goal of exceeding 3.0 for their cumulative GPA. Those athletes needing help in the classroom should ask a teammate, talk to their teachers, and get a tutor. There are many options available at Memorial if you take advantage of them. Keep up the great tradition of Memorial Distance Runners in the classroom.

State - AJ = 3rd Best Frosh

The 2019 CC season concluded with the running of the WIAA state championships at the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids on Saturday. For the fourth time in the last five years JMM CC ended their season with representation at the State Championships. This year we were represented by freshman AJ K who earned the trip to state with his 4th place finish at Sectionals. AJ is the first Spartan to run at State since Phil Downs in 1988 (prior to the meet even being held at the Ridges). During the week of practice AJ proclaimed we should qualify the whole team to state next year and we were all in full agreement. There was great support for AJ both with teammates who practiced with him during the week and the runners and fans who came to cheer him on at the Ridges. The cold temperatures arrived early this year to Wisconsin and combined with the strong winds made the state meet a chilly race. The state meet is a race of the best runners in the state...getting out in a good position is important to where you will finish in the race. AJ got out in 5:17  being in 114th place out of 190 runners. He worked hard in the middle of the course on some difficult hills to move up to 111th place at the finish. The experience he earned in this race will go a long way in his running career. AJ and his teammates who were at the meet realized the state meet has some tough hills and amazing competition which makes it difficult to pass people during the race. AJ was one of eleven freshman in the field of 190 runners. He finished as the 3rd best frosh in the D1 race and many future goals to try to attain. It was exciting to conclude at state this year with an individual and now are attention turns to the goal of getting a team here to compete next season. It will take Every Runner, Every Run, and Every Day to accomplish this goal. The little things in the off season, in the weight room, in our running, and in our health will determine if we can reach this goal.
