Greyhounds Win State XC

Early frost and light winds gave way to mostly sunny skies, 40 degree temperatures, and light winds to create a perfect fall day.  The WIAA decided to delay the races so that the frost could melt away.  This did not seem to affect the moods of our runners; we were at the Ridges Golf Course to do business!  We went on our walk and discussed strategies.  The mood was good and appeared that we left things from the night before behind us.  About 45 minutes before the start of the race we did our customary warm-up loop of the first mile and I left the TEAM at the 10 minute mark.  I pull the alternates to allow the 7 to focus on the task at hand.  I asked "Fat Dan" to continue with the warm-up and monitor their mood. This is a time where I ask the alternates about what they think will happen?  They said that we will win it!  I was glad that they appeared to be more confident then myself! Their confidence helped to ease the stress from the night before and I was able to shake a bit of doubt that I was having. 
I met the boys at box 7 and I received a good report from "Fat Dan".  15 minutes from the start we had a large gathering with the Team so that we can say our final well wishes.  This is a good time for the group to take a deep breath and take in the moment. (23 years earlier I was doing the same thing)  During the final moments we check our rivals uniforms to make sure that they did not change things up.  Freedom and Wisco both had different uniforms on.  We made note of the change before the gun went off.
The  crack of the gun signaled the 100th running of the Wisconsin State Cross Country Meet! The Greyhounds got off the line with the mental edge of "you have me to worry about"!  We are going to focus on what we can control. The Greyhounds did a nice job of working their way through the pack, and held excellent position by the 1000 meter mark. Our top 5 were executing the plan that we had set up for the meet.  They all hit the mile within the suggested time range with the rest of the team not far behind.  We had 6 runners in the top 50 which was much better then last years opening mile. This set us up so that we did not have to move through a sea of runners the next couple of miles.  Our guys ran well in the second mile constantly moving up and gaining momentum as they knew that they were having a good race. A solid last mile gave us our best team performance of the season and brought us a State Title!   We have stressed so often over the last 13 years that you have to make a strong push at the "roller coasters". RUNSTRONG is the mantra that should be pumping through the runners heads the last 1000 meters.  At the top of the ridge looking down on the "roller coasters" I knew that we would podium,  just not sure if it was going to be 1st or 2nd? To give you an idea here's our first mile places versus our final place:

Stahl: 10/4
Goldy: 27/18
Mackowski: 36/19
Kuhlmann: 30/33
Vrobel 50/38
Mauer: 47/53
Papke: 72/77

Stahl ran the entire race believing in himself!  He  looked comfortable as he ran the 2nd fastest time ever for a Greyhound on the state course 15:59.65. Goldberg and Mackowski had an outstanding race and took RUN-AS-ONE to the next level as they both pushed each other into the finish. Goldberg 16:37 and MacKowski 16:38.  Both cracking the top 11 fastest times at the State Meet by a Greyhound.  Kuhlmann may not have had his best time of the season but he did have a course PR  to help the team earn a trophy.  Kuhlmann took off 32 seconds from last year. Vrobel stepped up BIG as he had a last minute call to run at the state meet.  We talk all the time that an alternate has to put on their game face as we may never know when we might need them.  Dan receives my vote for MVP as he ran a season PR when we needed him too!  Dan also broke the 17 minute mark as a 5th runner 16:53!!! To the best of my knowledge no D2 team has ever done that in the history of the state meet!  (Freedom also puts 5 guys under 17:00)  Mauer (17:15) and Papke (17:33) was better then many teams 5th runners!  Their placement acts as pushers to help separate ourselves from the other teams scores. I hope that this experience will give Mauer some confidence next year. Papke has earned two State team title to end his HS career!

This win was our 8th state title and a 2nd place trophy from 2000 to 2012.  The Greyhounds have qualified for state meet the last 13 years.  I have heard that we have the 4th most titles for cross country.  Our team average represents one of the best in team history with an average of 16:35.49.  The TEAM wanted to be defined by their own legacy. They respect the runners that have come before them but they wanted to have their legacy and be talked about much like the 2000 team!  Each and every championship has a special place for me whether I was an assistant with Tim Kenney or the ones that we have earned with my fellow coaches after I became the head coach in 2004!

Eleven weeks ago, after our time trial race, I predicted that this would be a very good year for cross country in the state of Wisconsin. I was right!  Since last year’s state meet our guys have dedicated themselves to the challenge of building a TEAM that could compete with the best.  Injuries and illness have bothered us most of the season but somehow we’ve managed, as good teams do, to pull together a successful season and carry on the tradition of our program.

Here's a  few good articles:

Part of winning a championship is now being able to share the experience and good feeling with all of the people that we are connected to. A part of that championship belongs to our students, our faculty and our extended running Greyhound family. I hope that we all can find the time to enjoy

our accomplishments!  I'll end this as we end all of our team meeting with AS-ONE

Boys JV Takes 2nd, Varsity 4th at Muskego Invite

The JV Boys finished second behind Muskego in a cold and windy race by a margin of 52-69. The TEAM was led by Max Gietzen in 4th, Dylan Larson-Harsch in 10th, Henry Fowler in 14th, Johnnie Papineau in 15th, John Papke in 26th, Spencer Heywood in 29th and Joey Flegel-Mishlov in 32nd. Nice job guys!

The weather improved for the Varsity Boys race but the TEAM did not have their best day, in spite of an excellent effort by Charlie Stahl, who finished in 3rd place with what I believe was a PR. The TEAM came in 4th place with 108 points, behind winner Waukesha North (71 points), Muskego (96 points), and Germantown (102 points). Jacob Goldberg continued his way back and finished in 21st, followed by Alex MacKowski in 24th, Dan Vrobel in 29th, Jack Mauer in 31st, Sam Shields in 35th, Tom Treacy in 47th, and Mayan Essak in 54th.

Alterra Fundraiser

Dear Parents/Guardians & Friends,

Thank you for all you do to ensure the success of our programs. None of the worthwhile work we do would be possible without your continued participation and support.

We are pleased to announce that the Shorewood Cross Country Team will be kicking off a special Fundraising effort in partnership with Alterra Coffee Company.

Last year we earned $1,800 from this Fundraiser by selling Gourmet Coffee, something everyone wants. With the profits we earn, we will be funding for the purchase of timing for the meets, transportation cost to the  Smiley Invitational in Wausau, snacks at meets, flags and paint for the cross country course will also need to be purchased and payment to maintain our TEAM website. Our old red team tent is in need of some repairs and stakes.

We elected to work with Alterra Coffee Company because they are a well established supplier of specialty grade, fresh roasted coffee and they are committed to working closely with us to ensure the success of our fundraiser. Alterra is a socially responsible Coffee Company that donates a percentage of the profit from some of their coffee sales to specific organizations.

If you are interested in a making a purchase the coffee is $12.00 a pound or $8.00 for a tin of Cocoa. You may pay in cash or check. Please write the Check out to Shorewood Booster Club C/O Boys Dedicated Fund. Indicate coffee sales in the memo. We are selling Blue Heeler, French Roast and Breakfast Blend.

We ordered 400lbs to be sold between the boys and girls program and 50 Tins of Cocoa. We have a mix of ground and whole beans.

The Coffee will arrive on the 16th of August. Please pass the word.

Thank you for your participation!

Each year the TEAM's journey begins with this meet and today's win was a good start. However, there is long, long way to go in the season and the hard work is just beginning. Congrats guys!

Season Preview

Season Preview 

2012 Shorewood TEAM looks to take a strong step forward from last fall's 3rd place finish at the WIAA State Championships. The pieces are in place to do exactly that as the squad returns the bulk of their TEAM from last year.  We have 2 notable losses to graduation in Peter Morris (20th place) and Keith Dodd (2010 State Qualifier). However, the team does return 6 of the top 7 and a number of runners who could crack the top 10. Needless to say, it will still take a strong summer and a resilient focus to make waves in such a competitive Sectional and State Meet.

This year the TEAM will be led by 9 Seniors. Our top two returners are the Junior pairs of Charles Stahl and Jacob Goldberg. Stahl, finished 14th at the State Championships last fall and Goldberg was not to far behind in 27th pace. Both are coming off of a pretty solid track and field season

Other returners from last fall's top seven include sophomores Sam Kuhlmann and Mayan Essak. Both had incredibly successful rookie season for the Greyhounds. Not to be overlooked in the least will by senior John Papke and senior Michael Dellutri. Papke and Dellutri both fought through asthma attack's last season to help the TEAM to advance to the the State meet. Papke was 51st overall and Dellutri was 84th to help the team to a 3rd place finish. Additionally, no one will be surprised to see the likes of John Traudt, Jack Mauer, Dan Vrobel and Tom Treacy working their way into the fray as well.

With such strength returning to uniform, it could be difficult for a rookie or veteran racer to battle his way onto a championship squad. But not out of the question. Notable additions can bring in some noteworthy high school performances; however, there are always "diamonds in the rough" that shine at the 5k distance. This could be one of the deepest years in recent memory for the Shorewood sqaud.  I’m sure others will all make a strong bid for some spots this fall. It’s going to be an exciting fall however it shakes out. In the end, we’re the 3rd best team in D2... until we get the chance to prove otherwise."

Boys Varsity Takes 2nd. JV 3rd at Arrowhead Invitational

Congrats to the Varsity TEAM as they began to show their potential today at a very competitive Arrowhead Invite. The TEAM was second with 113 points to winner Arrowhead, followed closely by West Bend West with 119 points, Homestead with 122 points, and Janesville Craig & Oconomowoc with 129 points. The TEAM had four mdal winners including Charlie Stahl, Sam Kuhlmann, Alex MacKowski and Tom Treacy. Rounding out the sound effort for Varsity was John Traudt, Dan Vrobel, Jack Mauer and Mayan Essak. I believe there were some huge PRs at the meet, including at least Sam Kuhlmann, Alex MacKowski, Tom Treacy and Dan Vrobel.

The JV TEAM had  a solid effort and were led by a top ten finish by Johnnie Papineau. Also scoring for the TEAM were Michael Delutri, Henry Fowler, Dylan Larson-Harsch, Max Gietzen, Spencer Heywood and Joey Flegel-Mishlov.

It was also great to see state veteran runner John Papke working his way back from injury.
