TOWN OF MERTON — For several years now, there’s been a consistent theme.

When Middleton’s boys track and field team performs well at the Myrhum Invitational hosted by Hartland Arrowhead, it goes on and does big things in the postseason.

The Cardinals are hoping for similar results again this season.

Middleton won the Myrhum Invite last Saturday, scoring 83.5 points and edging defending state champion Kimberly (83.0) at the 33-team event.  Mukwonago (47), Fond du Lac (43) and Hartland Arrowhead (39) rounded out the top five.

“This is one of the best meets I have been a part of because of all the clutch efforts from our athletes,” Middleton coach Joe Line said. “Great performances made it happen.”

Middleton trailed Kimberly by 2.5 points with only the 1,600-meter relay left. But the Cardinals finished sixth, which was good for three points, and passed the Papermakers.

“The guys ran the hardest I have seen,” Line said. “It was the perfect meet to gear up for conference.”

Cardinals senior Caleb Easton won the 1,600-meter run in 4:18.49, while teammate Zach Leffel was seventh (4:23.95). Easton was also second in the 800-meter run (1:56.98), while Braedon Gilles was fourth (1:57.32) and Michael Madoch was fifth (1:57.41).

Marquez Winters was second in the long jump (21-11), while Quinn Calvin was sixth (20-9.5).

Casey Hellenbrand was fifth in the 110-meter hurdles and set a school record with a time of 15.35 seconds. The old mark was 15.38.

Jackson Meyer was fifth in the triple jump (42-5.5) and Kallion Buckner was sixth in the 100-meter dash (11.24). Henry Patterson was sixth in the high jump (6-0) and Jackson Meyer was seventh (5-10).

Stuart Wodzro was sixth in the 300-meter hurdles (42.12) and Hellenbrand was seventh (42.53).

Middleton’s 3,200-meter relay team was second and its 800-meter relay team was third. The Cardinals’ 400-meter relay team was also third and their 1,600-meter relay team was sixth.

Middleton’s girls finished seventh out of 28 teams. Milwaukee King won the invite with 74 points, while the Cardinals finished with 34 points.

“The team as a whole is improving at the right time of the year,” Middleton coach Cory Christnovich said. “We have been consistently seeing our times drop across the board.”

Middleton’s Sitori Tanin won the high jump (5-2) and Margo Motiashova tied for first in the long jump (14-2 ½). Tanin was also sixth in the triple jump (35-3).

“Sitori Tanin had a nice meet back after taking a few weeks off with a knee injury,” Christnovich said. “I look for her to keep improving her times and distances as we get more time to practice with her.”

Shea Ruhly was second in the 1,600-meter run (5:08.11) and third in the 3,200 (11:01.91), setting personal-bests in both events.

“Shea Rhuley ran great,” Christnovich said.

Andrea Young was ninth in the discus (97-11).

Middleton’s 3,200-meter relay team was fourth and its 400-meter relay team was seventh.

• On deck: Middleton is at the Big Eight Conference meet Friday at Verona. The event begins at 3:30 p.m.

“I feel really good about how we are positioned as a team,” Christnovich said. “It should be a great meet on Friday.”
