DASH High School Track WI School for the Deaf Meet Report

Hello DASH families,

The DASH high school track and field team completed their season last Monday, competing in a triangular meet against Trinity Academy and host team Wisconsin School for the Deaf. We combined with the Homeschool Eagles to help us field our strongest team of the season.

Siobhan Heiss was back wearing DASH yellow. Siobhan won the long jump and set a new DASH record in the triple jump to get the day off to a good start. Emily Caspers, Kaitlyn Hillman, and Emily McIntyre finished 2-3-4 in the 1600 meters. Rachel Risum lined up for the 400 meters, and it only took her 1:10 to finish which was good for another DASH record. Ali Hegle also broke the old DASH record finishing in 1:12. Kaitlyn Hillman’s effort was good for 2nd place in the 800 meters. Heidi Jacobsen, with a smile on her face, soaked in the applause for a full eight laps to set a new DASH record in the 3200 meters with Emily Caspers finishing 2nd. Our 4×400 relay team of Siobhan Heiss, Ali Hegle, Heidi Jacobsen, and Rachel Risum just missed the DASH record. Our 4×200 team took a handoff out of the exchange zone to miss out on a victory.

Joe Ingersoll prevailed in the high jump once again to get the boys team going. Michael Risum was in the points in the long jump with his 15’7″ jump. A determined Luke Versweyveld broke away early in the 1600 meters to smash his own DASH record with a time of 4:31. Kenny Hillman and Aaron Vogel also put up impressive times to sweep the leaderboard in that event. Joe Ingersoll and Michael Risum went 2-3 in the 400 meters, and Kyle Hillman and Aaron Vogel went 1-2 in the 800 meters. It was Kenny Hillman’s turn to set a DASH record in the 3200 meters. He ran a fast and steady pace to finish in 10:45. Luke Versweyveld and Kyle Hillman were next to finish making it another DASH sweep. Our 4×200 relay team of Daniel Kordik, Zebulon Caspers, Aaron Vogel, and Michael Risum just missed the DASH record finishing second, and our 4×400 team ran unopposed to win that event.

The boys finished a strong second to the big WI School for the Deaf team, while our girls finished 3rd, just 3 points behind the winning WI School for the Deaf team. The DQ in the 4×200 relay proved to be the difference. Oh, so close!

Thanks to my wife and daughter Zipporah for the photos. Thanks to all the parents and to Eagles coach Pfarr for helping get the athletes to the meet and ready to compete. The season was short for the high school team, but it was a very memorable year with many records set. Thanks again to everyone who played a part.

Take care,
Jim Caspers
