LA CROSSE – The Bay Port track and field teams had a successful showing at the WIAA D1 state meet in La Crosse June 1-2.
The top performance was from senior pole vaulter Olivia Mabry, who jumped to a fifth-place podium spot with her 11-06.00 height. Mabry improved on her sixth place from last year. De Pere’s Olivia Fabry won the state championship with a height of 12-6.00.

Another impressive performance was put in by freshman Ella Meeuwsen in the high jump. Meeuwsen tied for ninth with her jump of 5-04.00, but five other girls had the same height. Tiebreakers are decided by the number of misses a participant has during the competition.
