Track and Field 

Preble Track and Field had a tremendous season with extremely dedicated and hard-working athletes. Aside from winning meets and moving on in sectionals and state, the team celebrates its success with green and gold standards.

Green and gold standards are goals, times, heights, jumps, distances, etc. that athletes work towards reaching. This year, there were 41 green standards met by the boys team and 42 green standards met by the girls team. Reaching the gold standard for the boys were Eli DeBraske and Nate Nelson in the 100m dash, Eli DeBraske in the 200m dash, Nick Becker in the 400m dash, Garrison Willems in the 800m and 1600m run, Caleb Katers in shot put, Camian McGregor in discus, Eli DeBraske in long jump, Josh Hurley and Augustus Counard Ciechanowski in pole vault, and Ja’Donn Potter-Kanyanta in high jump.

The Varsity team got to bond at Urban Battlefields, they participated in yoga to prepare for upcoming games, they hosted a brat fry, and helped Americorps plant trees just outside of Green Bay. The team also worked together with the Preble Key Club to collect items needed for Foster the Village. Foster The Village is a community organization that supports our local foster parents and the children they serve and welcome into their homes.
