Red Raider boys open with busy week
It was a busy week for the Wauwatosa East boys track team last week, as the Red Raiders opened with a quadrangular March 12 and then took part in the Nelson/Daniel Invitational on Saturday at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
New coach Tim Reichelt has some key returning athletes this season.
Dan Gagne, Jack Lockhart, RJ Salmon and Steffen Uhrich lead the distance runners and Joe Rebholz, Sully Schermerhorn and John Serrano are the key returning sprinters.
Two other returnees are Nick Pridgeon in the sprints and hurdles and Kevin Karraker in the throws.
Reichelt also expects the following athletes to contribute: Clay Ristow, Deshawn Reynolds in distance; Jaleel King, Desmond Cooper, Carl Behlmer and Jack Blazek in the sprints; Kellen Moye in the hurdles; Danny Erickson in the throws and Jake Meidl in the pole vault.
The boys finished 16th at the Nelson/Daniels Classic over the weekend, scoring 15 points. Oconomowoc won the event with 54 points, narrowly beating Arrowhead (51).
Uhrich finished third in the 800 (2:02.24), Gagne was fourth in the 1600 and Salmon was sixth in the 1600 (4:31.55) giving the Red Raiders three top-10 finishes.
