Goedert felt that Dorn was a great example of this. She was having a great 100 hurdle final race when she unfortunately hit the last hurdle, which dropped her from second to eighth place.

Dorn quickly refocused and came back to win the pole vault.

Erica Lorenz had a personal record in both the long jump and the triple jump.

Freshman Arissa Scott ran a strong race in the mile and took third. Freshman Savana Burg also ran wel1, posting a personal record in both the 400 dash and 200 dash.

“We have been leaning on our younger runners this season and overall they, along with the veterans, did a very nice job and should be proud of their second place finish,” stated Goedert.

“This is the best the team has placed at Vanderpan in the seven years since I have coached Sheboygan Falls,” said Falcons’ boys head coach Chuck Otte. “We continue to compete at a high level and I look forward to seeing how well we will do next Monday in the EWC meet at Valders. Our team strength comes from our unsung heroes placing fourth through eighth across the board in all events in every meet.”

The Falcons weight group of Garzcynski, Brady Koller and Adam LeMahieu scored a lot of points for the team. The 800 relay team of Jacob Long, Joel Zitzer, Drew Wilfahrt, Kaleb Ison ran their fastest time of the year to take third for the Falcons.
