The Sauk Prairie High School track and field teams came away from Tuesday’s Badger North Conference meet with three champions.

All came on the boys’ side, as Phillip Geiselman and Garrett Hertzfeldt took home individual titles while the Eagles also claimed a relay title.

Geiselman cleared 12 feet, 6 inches to win the Badger North pole vault title. The junior was six inches ahead of DeForest’s Travis Nelson (12-0), while Sauk Prairie’s P.J. Lane (11-06) placed fourth.

Hertzfeldt claimed the shot put title. The junior’s throw of 47-03.25 edged out DeForest’s Austin Westra (47-00.25) for first place. Sauk Prairie’s Reece Bierstaker (43-07.5) added a sixth-place finish.

The Eagles won the longest relay of the day, as Camden Desroches, Tucker Holloway, Dalton Zirbel and Hudson Haas crossed the finish line in 8 minutes, 35.35 seconds to take first in the 4x800-meter relay. The quartet finished 11.56 seconds ahead of Waunakee (8:46.91).

The champions led the Sauk Prairie boys to 70 points and a fifth-place finish out of eight Badger North teams. The Eagles also scored 57 points to place fifth in the girls meet.

Waunakee scored 199.5 points to bring home the girls title, while DeForest won the boys meet with 136 points.

The Sauk Prairie boys were solid throughout the distance races. Desroches took fourth place in the 800 (2:05.51) and sixth in the 1,600 (4:44.47), while Haas took fifth in the 3,200 (10:36.48).

Sedric McCann placed fourth in the 110-meter high hurdles (:16.48). He also teamed up with Hertzfeldt, Jo Smet and Lane to take fourth in the 4x400 relay (:45.39). McCann, Parker Breunig, Smet and Ethan Gibbs finished fourth in the 4x200 (1:35.96).

Blake Gibbs (38-06.75) and Cameron Tucker (:53.87) took eighth in the triple jump and the 400, respectively.

The Sauk Prairie girls team’s best relay was a fourth-place finish in the 4x800, when Kassia Marquardt, Bethany Johnson, Emily Herbrand and Cassie Radl crossed the finish line in 10:49.84.

Ruby Sandeman and Alexsa Lemelin led the Sauk Prairie girls individually.

Sandeman put up a runner-up finish in long jump (17-06.25), trailing only Baraboo’s Jamie Runnels (17-10.5). Carina Meixelsperger (15-05) added a seventh-place finish for the Eagles in the long jump.

Sandeman also took third in the triple jump (34-08.5), one spot ahead of teammate Samantha Marx (34-03) while Olivia Smith (33-10) came in seventh.

Lemelin placed third in the discus (96-05) and fourth in the shot put (33-02).

Aurey Pape and Grace Williams each cleared 8 feet to tie for fifth in the pole vault, while Emily Herbrand finished seventh in the 3,200 (13:10.12).

Sauk Prairie will compete in the WIAA Division 1 Middleton regional Monday, with the qualifiers advancing to the Verona sectional May 23.
