LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - The WIAA State Track and Field tournament is in full swing. Several local athletes captured top prize in day one action.
Independence/Gilmanton's Ziyannha Connor hoped to overcome a past failure in her return to the State tournament. Two seasons ago, Connor received seventh place honors in the 100 meter hurdles.
This year, Connor achieved first place honors with a time of 15.6 seconds.
Royall's Jessica Brueggeman shined in the first day of action, alongside the entire Royall's girls team. Brueggeman picked up points as the anchor on the 4 x 100 meter relay.
Brueggeman's largest contribution was her 19-foot, 8-inch long jump to set a Division 3 record and secure first place.
The Royall girls won the Division 3 State Title.
