LA CROSSE - Several area athletes earned medals at Saturday's WIAA state track and field championships, headlined by a fourth-place finish from Beaver Dam's Matt Schneider.
Schneider was down to his final attempt at 14 feet, 6 inches when his pole broke on takeoff. Given a second chance, he cleared the height and went on to place fourth. Green Bay Preble's Jake Wallenfang set a new Division 1 state record in the pole vault by clearing 16 feet, besting Brookfield East's Glen Harold.
