Huhn, a sophomore, qualified in the girls discus after placing first with a throw of 114-5½.

Novotny and Guell advanced in the boys long jump and triple jump, respectfully. Novotny finished second with a 21-11½ effort. Guell set a school record in the triple jump with 42-11 which earned him second.

The top-three finishers in each sectional event automatically qualify along with the top-eight performers from all of the sectionals. The state meet will be held Friday and Saturday at UWLa Crosse.

“Our athletes had a great sectional meet. While we had three athletes qualify, many more ended their season with their best performances of the season or career, and we are very proud of them all for that,” said PHS head coach Jay Grosshuesch.

“Mason and Derek did a great job in the jumps as they were consistently jumping well. Mason broke the school record by over a foot in the triple jump, and Derek hit a season PR [personal record] in his long-jump effort,” said Grosshuesch.

“Cece had some real nice throws in the discus and outclassed the competition in her event.

“That is a satisfying way to end the season even if it doesn’t result in a state meet berth. We also had a good number of underclassmen who gained valuable experience competing at the sectional meet that they can hopefully use to their advantage next year,” added the coach.
