The New Berlin West girls track and field team finished a solid second in the Woodland Conference West Division Indoor Championship on April 8 at Pius XI.
Wauwatosa West scored 145 points and ran away with the win, but the Vikings (124.50) easily finished second ahead of Pewaukee (56).
The Vikings had four first-place performances, including the 4x800-meter relay behind Sarah Meleski, Emily Szydlowski, Jamey Devine and Claire Radtke, which won in 10 minutes, 55.9 seconds.
Rayce Albino continued her excellent spring with a first in pole vault, leaping 12-0 feet.
Liz Liska leaped 5 feet, 1 inch to finish first in the high jump and Maddy Egan was first in the 3,200-meter run (12:26.33).
Both Liska and Egan had good days, taking third in the pole vault (8-0) and second in the 1,600 (5:34.30), respectively.
Two individuals and a relay finished second for the Vikings.
Sarah Meleski took second in the 800 (2:30.22) and Liz Doty was second in the 55 hurdles (10.18). Doty was also fifth in the triple jump (29-11½).

Ali Boldt was third in the 400 (1:05.99) and Patricia Boles finished third in the shot put (34 feet, 3 inches).
The 4x400 relay was third (4:46.45) behind Liska, Carley Stauche, Doty and Sammi Bush.
Kia Richards was fourth in the high jump (4-8) and Anna Klingbeil was fourth in two events — the 55 hurdles (10.68) and the long jump (13-11).
Anne Radtke was fourth in the 800 (2:40.44) and sixth in the 55 dash (7.85).

Ariana Gladieux-Carter tied for fifth in the high jump (4-6) and finished sixth in the 55 hurdles (10.70). Gaby Torres placed sixth in the triple jump (29-9¾).
"The girls did a great job trying to keep pace with Tosa West," coach Matthew Ische said. "Madeline Egan, Liz Liska, Sarah Meleski and Patricia Boles had great meets.
"Patricia has really stepped up as our number one thrower. Liz Doty in the hurdles has also stepped up a lot for us. There is still a lot of work to do but the girls had a good indoor season."
