MENOMINEE — Members of the Menominee boys and girls track team are heading to Kingsford for U.P. Finals today.

The girls have competitors in every event besides the 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash and pole vault while the boys are bringing along their 400 and 800 relay teams, along with junior Dylan Oudeans in the shot put and senior Bryce Parrett in the long jump.

Makenzie Wellner is looking to add another 100 hurdles gold to her trophy collection, and will also be ready to avenge last year when she false-started in the 300 hurdles preventing her from a chance at a sweep. She is also a part of the 800 relay team with sophomore Jenna Nolde, sophomore Alicia Nordquist and her older sister, senior Ely Wellner. The 800 relay team has been dynamite all year and will be trying to keep things trending in the right direction today.

Nolde, Ely Wellner and Nordquist are also on the 400 relay team that will be competing, and Wellner will also be on the 1,600 relay team with three freshman in Hayden Buck, Anna Nerat and Marin Park.

Nordquist is running in the 100; Buck will be in the 800; junior Katie Anderla is a long distance specialist for the Maroons and is competing in both the 1,600 and 3,200 along with teaming up with Park, Buck and junior Jaida Lesperance for the 3,200 relay.

Freshman Kennedy Olson will look to continue her good season in the shot put; senior Kansas Bailey will try her luck in the discus; Nerat will compete in the high jump after just setting a personal record at the Great Northern Conference meet last week and Nolde will play in the sand in the long jump pit.

For the boys, the 400 relay team consists of juniors Caden Bigger, John Boucher and Hunter Goldschmidt along with Parrett and the 800 relay team boasts all sophomores in Cameron Buscher, Landen Clausen, Hunter Shepeck and Adam Sandahl.
