Eagle Track squads produce 25….

The 2018 Allen Eagle track squad will be a blend of youth and experience along with a sprinkling of veteran performers from prior state track meets this season. The squad consists of 17 boys and 8 girls. Four of the twenty five athletes competed in Omaha in 2016 and or 2017. All four are returning medalists. The Eagles captured 6 medals at the 2017 state meet.

Head coach, Dave Uldrich, will be assisted by Marc Bathke, Zach Wemhoff and Paige Green.

Heading the senior class for the Eagles will be Bri Hingst. Hingst qualified in the 300 hurdles in 2017 and had also run on the 4X100 relay in 2016. Hingst will set the tone for all the younger athletes to follow. Juniors, returning state champion medalists, Isaac Verzani and Devin Twohig, as well as sophomore medalist Brogan Jones, will look to repeat the 4X800 relay championship, produced in 2017. Their efforts are expected to be the model for all to follow.

Seniors and juniors are scarce, but Desi Martell is a quality high jumper and Tanisha Isom will run mid distance. Two other juniors will help lead the team this spring. Jarod Lund, will compete for the fourth leg of the defending state relay team. Haley Stapleton, a steadfast relay member returns.

Sophomore boys, along with freshmen boys and girls make a large portion of the squad and will be challenged to improve before season’s end. Coach Uldrich believes a few could really make an impact by season’s end. Several are new, and a few return as ‘seasoned’ competitors. Josh Grone, Noah Carr, Lukas Oswald and Brock Floyd will add depth early. The many newcomers will be placed in areas where success hopefully follows.

It seems as if the 2018 squad, are the kids who want to be here, challenging themselves and wanting to be the best they can be as individuals, and become even better competitive athletes. The coaching staff appreciates that mentality.



Coaches comments:

“The team will work very hard to get better. Our coaching staff’s philosophy is easy to understand, ’get better daily’. The program is all about personal improvement, not being the first place person in every meet. We have never made that a priority and will not start now. When the kids buy into that, and see improvements come personally, they work even harder to better themselves. I respect and admire these kids…..to put themselves in front of everyone, risking failure, but risking success too. Eventually, the medals will come. The work it takes to be a track athlete and learning to compete is a valuable lesson for life. We appreciate and respect each and every athlete who dares take the challenge. These athletes are a tremendously fun and hard working group of young people.”
