New Berlin Eisenhower's boys scored 65 points and won their indoor track opener at the New Berlin West Viking Invite on March 19.

New Berlin West (42), Germantown (40), Mukwonago (37) and East Troy (7) rounded out the scoring in the opener.

"This was a great start for our boys and girls and the first team victory for the Eisenhower boys in about 10 years," coach Billy Simon said. "I'm very happy with the effort and enthusiasm across the board.

"Our returners really stepped up and showed the new kids the right way to prepare for competition and the first-year athletes showed everyone that they are hungry and ready to contribute. This group has a ton of potential, and I am excited to see how far they can go."

Sean Broihier and Brian Schafer were two-time winners.

Broihier won the long jump with a personal record of 20 feet, 4 inches, the second longest leap in school history. He also won the 55-meter dash with a personal record (6.65).
