    Ziolkowski Takes 4th at State

    The Whippets competed in the WIAA State Track and Field Championships over the weekend. They were represented by three athletes, Sarah Ziolkowski, Allisan Barrett, and Xhonatan Shahollari. The highest finisher was senior captain Sarah Ziolkowski. Sarah ended her high school running career standing on the podium in fourth place for the 3200m run. She had an excellent race, breaking the 11 minute barrier for the first time. The race was the best of her career and came only days after finishing her first workout on the track all season long. All her training had been done in the pool or on a bike prior to the week leading up to state. Finally pain-free, she was able to compete her best and cruised to a 4th place finish. This matches the highest finish ever by a Whippet in the 3200m run, equaling the finish of Cora Kurtzweil back in 1980. Her time was the 6th best time in all divisions combined, earning the honor of being All-State in the event. Sarah was fortunate to have a teammate in the race. Sophomore Allisan Barrett also competed very well in the 3200m run in her first appearance in front of the crowd of almost 10,000 at Roger Harring Stadium on the campus of UW-LaCroose. Allisan came into the race with a goal of breaking 12 minutes for the first time, qualifying just 6 seconds away. While she was unable to break that mark, she did finish 1 spot higher than she qualified, and took 1 second off, running another lifetime best, performing her best when it mattered the most. The lone boy competing was Xhonatan Shahollari in the triple jump. Xhonatan had a great week of practice leading up to competition. It was a delicate balance of getting enough work in while not aggravating a sore ankle in the process. Things seemed to be going great until the time came to actually compete. The ankle flared up a bit in warm ups, and a slightly off-balance landing on one of the phases in his first jump made things worse. After that first jump, he was noticeably fighting through some pain for the remainder of the competition. He failed to make finals, ending his season on a somewhat disappointing note. Fortunately for both Xhonatan and Sarah, this weekend won't mark the end of their track and field careers. Both plan on continuing their pursuit of personal excellence while competing for the LaCrosse Eagles next season. Allisan has two more years left to build off this experience and leave her mark on Whippet track and field.
