Tremper junior Maddy Troy already owns four pieces of WIAA Division-1 State Track and Field Meet hardware.

It’s just one indoor meet, but she’s apparently planning to add to her collection.

Troy, who finished sixth in the long jump at last year’s state meet, set the meet record Saturday at the UW-Parkside Invitational with a winning jump of 17-10½.

The previous mark of 17-9½ was set in 2014 by Muskego’s Jerica Kotarek.

Troy added a second-place finish in the 55 dash with a time of 7.44 seconds, behind only Wauwatosa West senior Ja’Cey Simmons.

“Maddy did exceptional to come out and take first place in her first meet in the long jump,” Tremper coach Deb Bornhuetter said. “We were really pleased and she was excited. To come back and finish second in the 55, it was a great day for her.”

Sophomore Zipporah Gordon had a second-place finish for the Trojans in the 400 (1:04.34), while junior teammate Lacy Dever was second in the high jump (4-10).

Indian Trail sophomore Simone Carmickle was third in the 200 (27.17), and senior Alicia Jones was third in the triple jump (34-91/4).

On the boys’ side, Indian Trail came home with four first-place efforts. Winning titles were senior Jaylen Grant, with a school-record time of 6.49 in the 55 dash; senior James Vandun in the 55-intermediate hurdles (8.43); the 1,600 relay team of seniors Ethan Krueger, Alex Jarvis and Hunter Schultz and junior Devin Rose (3:37.48); and Jarvis in the triple jump (43-5½).

“It’s great to see the kids compete today,” Indian Trail coach Brian Vanderhoef said. “The first meet is always interesting to see where your team is at.

“Ultimately, today’s goal was to shake off the rust and build some confidence moving into next week. Overall, (I’m) very pleased with how the team looked this weekend.”

Also placing in the top three on the boys’ side were the Indian Trail 800 relay team of Grant, sophomore Kameron Lee, sophomore Clayton Bishop and junior Connor Fahnrich, second (1:36.94); Tremper freshman Kyle Holm, second in the 55-hurdles (8.44); Tremper sophomore Tyler Santi, third in the 400 (53.27); and Indian Trail senior William Mortimer, third in the triple jump (42-101/4).

Indian Trail was third in the boys team standings with 68 points, behind Hartland Arrowhead with 84 and Waukesha North with 76. Tremper was 11th with 26 points.

The Tremper girls finished seventh with 39 points, while Indian Trail was eighth with 32 and Shoreland Lutheran ninth with six. Wisconsin Lutheran won the team title with 75 points.
