Shorewood High School: 2014 CC Season

Saturday, November 1
On the podium - boys take 2nd at state!

The Grehound boys had an impressive race at the WIAA 2014 State Cross Country meet in Wisconsin Rapids on November 1.  They came in 2nd behind Wisconsin Lutheran and ahead of Lakeland.  Whoops of joy came from the team when they heard they would take home the 2nd place trophy - which happens to be the 10th trophy Shorewood has earned at the state meet - more than any other D2 school.  Sam Kuhlmann came in 6th to be on the podium for the top 10 individuals.

Varsity and JV win the Burlington Chocolate City Invitational

JV boys start the race

The Shorewood boys ran well together today - winning both Varsity and JV on a blustery cold morning despite a week where a large number of the boys had days off sick.  Varsity boys "ran as one" with less than a minute split between the first and 7th runner.  The JV boys took command with a slam - taking positions 1-5 for a perfect 15 score.  Many PRs were recorded today 3 Varsity and 16 JV!!

Dom's recap from the Burlington race:

There's a reason why Shorewood boys cross country is ranked high in the state, and they won at the Chocolate City Invite over the weekend.  As a team, Shorewood (54) defeated Janesville Craig (65).  The weather was much like what we would see later in the season.  It was cold, windy and drizzly! I was happy to see that the boys were well prepared physically and mentally for the the conditions. It's amazing how our new team tent can change the mood!  The Eskimo tent was nice and toasty and I can't wait for our second one to come in.

The plague.......early last week we had a large number of athletes out with a variety of illnesses.  By Tuesday we had 16 of 40 athletes out with some form of illness. I was going to scrap the meet but slowly we started to increase our numbers as the week went on.  I told the boys that we would need to change our goals for the meet.  They felt that we were deep enough to win the varsity and JV meet.  So I trusted them.  The goal was to go out a bit more controlled the first 1 mile. Sam Kuhlmann convinced me to race him and we agreed that he would sit back to the 3200 meter mark and if he felt good he could drop the hammer.  Sam sat back for a bit to long as he closed with a 5:02 mile moving from around 22nd place to 3rd place! Following Sam:

The JV TEAM showed their depth!  The Greyhounds took the to 5 places!  I heard a few coaches question why are these guys not running at the varsity level? Not fair to the JV runners.  Well I tried to run 2 varsity teams! The school would not allow us.  On paper it looks like the JV team would have placed 4th in the varsity race!  That's really impressive!!  We had 17 PR's today on this course!

The depth on the team this year is vital to our success! At any time the order of our top ten can change dramatically, and if they all continue to work together and run for each other they can accomplish some tremendous feats!

**I am impressed with the overall performances of the team as we had a number of athletes achieve personal bests after what seemed like a plague hitting the team.  They are all working hard and it showed at the meet!

Next  meet will be the Shorewood Invitational at Kern. Can Sam Kuhlmann challenge the course record?

Another decisive Smiley win for Shorewood Varsity & JV Boys

JV Boys win with a perfect 15 score!

On a beautiful Fall morning in northern Wisconsin, the JV boys started out the day with a commanding win of the race - taking positions 1-5 for a perfect 15 score.  All of the boys ran well, though the times seemed slower compared to the speedy, flat Arrowhead race the week before.  A perfect reminder how each race course and day is different.

The Varsity boys then took their turn - with a few boys sick, it felt that the race was a bit of a struggle, but the strong early-season training and determination of the boys resulted in a decisive win - with the Varsity boys taking the race  with 54 points over the second place Little Chute who had 89.

It Was That Kind of Day for Shorewood....
Start with perfect running conditions with cool temperatures and a slight breeze;  with lots of guts, heart, belief in themselves and enthusiasm. What do you get? A very special day for Shorewood Cross Country runners and the fans watching.  PRs were the name of the game at Arrowhead this year! Sam Kuhlmann broke the school record with a blistering time of 15:33.29 to take 2nd place.  

We decided to run two Varsity teams as I felt that everyone could have a BIG day. I contacted Coach Mike Mulrooney to see if I could run 2 varsity squads because this team is so deep and many of our runners beyond the top 7 would be varsity for past Shorewood teams. Both squads had runners under 18:00 minutes.  Many of these athletes have limited varsity experience and they are running like season veterans. I was really impressed with all the runners but a few stand out.  James Douglass second race ever and he takes off nearly a minute from last weeks race to run 16:37.  Sam Shields ran 16:44 for a 30+ second life time best.  Dylan Larson-Harsch just misses the sub 17 mark.  Alex Luger, Cole Baumann and Leo Fowler for rookies ran like champs!  A few lessons were learned about going out in a blistering pace the first mile and we will take that lesson and apply it to our future races.  Congrats boys on your second place finish!

JV boys had some solid runs as well, particularly our Freshman. According to our stats man Johnnie the 2018 class would have just out scored the 2015 class based on the Arrowhead freshman times. Leo Fowler has run one of the fastest times for a Shorewood Freshmanclass since Sam Kuhlmann. " It was a very close score, 56-58 in favor of this year's freshman.  If the freshman continue to work hard over the next 3 years the doors could be wide open.  It was also great to see Sandy, Woyak and Fregoso step up
 as the new leaders for the JV team.

From Johnnie:
So for those of you who read Charles Stahl's email he attached freshman times at arrowhead over the past 7 years wondering if this years class could be the best. I added in our times from Thursday and scored it as a meet, top 5 freshman from each class score. It was really only a contest between the class of 2015 (this year's seniors) and the class of 2018 (this year's freshman). It was a very close score, 56-58 in favor of this year's freshman. The seniors had 3 front runners that made them hard to beat but the pack running and Max Kramer and Will Vuyk each displacing the seniors #5 guy gave them the 2 point victory.

Great season opener at the Kern Park Early Bird meet

The Greyhound boys finished 2nd with 58 points to Division 1 Marquette's 53 points on Thursay in their season opener at Kern Park.  

Race recap from Dom:

Sam Kuhlmann took charge of the race and ran to an early season meet PR of 16:35 to win the the individual title. Sam was followed by a 8 teammates who closed within 18 seconds of each other 2nd runner to 9th runner. We had a 4 second spread from 3rd runner to 9th runner.  It is great to see such a small gap but we need to decrease the gap to our first runner!  Most of our runners have limited varsity experience and they should improve quite a bit with each race. Many of the athletes ran faster times from the 2013 season at this time.  It appears that we will be a deep team.  Many of our rookies gained valuable experience racing for the first time this season.  Leo Fowler was our top rookie placing 42nd in a time of 18:39.  Everybody improved and our freshman put up some solid times!!  I listed the time improvements for our varsity runners.  Most Improved goes to Cole Baumann who took off 4:58 from last years early season invite time!  CONGRATS Cole!
