The Brookfield Central girls had six first-place finishes, including two by Natalie Schmitz, as the Lancers won the Hamilton Invitational on April 18 at Sussex.
Central (106) ran away from Hamilton (88) and the rest of the five-school field - New Berlin West (83), Divine Savior Holy Angels (52) and New Berlin Eisenhower (44).
Schmitz stood out in the high jump (4 feet, 10 inches) and triple jump (33-3), winning each event.
"Natalie really stood out as she finished first in both the high jump and triple jump," Central coach Lorie Lewis said. "Both performances were personal records for her.
"This is her first season out for track and she is just starting to get the feel for several events along with filling some voids within the team lineup. She is a very driven athlete who will continue to improve as the outdoor season moves along."
Veronica Porubsky won the 100 hurdles (17.60 seconds) and finished second in the 300 hurdles (50.65).
Elizabeth Flatley in the 1,600 (5 minutes, 16.82 seconds), Pauline Agnello in the 800 (2:31.95) and Danielle Kulpins in the 3,200 (11:54.49) had the other first-place performances for Central.
Megan Hlava took second in the 3,200 (12:37.05) and Alissa Elwing, 100 dash (13.35), Sheila Kilb, 800 (2:34.83), and the 3,200 relay of Lauren Glomski, Kelsey Fox, Kilb and Agnello also finished second (10:21.93).
The Lancers also had seven third-place finishers.
Shaelyn Ziegler took third in the high jump (4-8), Kristen Hlava, 1,600 (6:11.14), Analie Tuchalski, 400 (1:07.02) and Paige Warnicke in the 300 hurdles (53.74) each also took third.
Three relays were the other third-place finishers - the 800 relay of Sereniti Tuchalski, Elwing, Ziegler and Jennifer Fox (1:52.11); the 400 relay of Schmitz, Tuchalski, Emily Strack and Ceci Risch (56.03); and the 1,600 relay of Analie Tuchalski, Molly Schindler, Fox and Jessica Marciniak (4:27.95).
"It was a relief to get this victory after having off, immediately following our indoor season, for spring break," Lewis said. "It can be tough to come back for the first meet after a long layoff from competition, yet there were many on the team who used the time to work on their events and showed up with improved performances."
Lewis was especially happy with the Lancers' depth.
"The team was impressive again as they scored multiple times in most events," she said. "Moving forward we will continue to work on improving individual performances along with filling any voids we might have on the varsity team."
