It's time to honor some of the notable accomplishments recorded by Wisconsin athletes on the track this past month.
On "The Podium," we feature and spotlight four individuals who have reached new personal achievements, such as setting all-time bests on the track, winning races or breaking time barriers.
Take a look to see which Wisconsin athletes made it on The Podium and learn more about their commendable accomplishments from March.
The Podium (March 31):
Sophie Yetter, Winneconne: Took home the distance double in the 800m and the 1,600m at the Ripon College Showcase meet on March 25. Notably, Yetter shaved three seconds off her previous 1,600m personal best to clock a winning time of 5:13.88, which ranks fifth in the state so far this indoor season.
Nathan Cumberbatch, Shorewood: Debuted on the outdoor track at the Florida Relays on March 31 where he won the boys 800m in a stellar PR of 1:50.33. That now ranks Cumberbatch as the second-fastest boy to ever run the outdoor 800m in Wisconsin state history.
Lola Kolawole, Whitefish Bay: Recorded personal bests of 7.55 in the 60m and 24.28 for the 200m at New Balance Nationals Indoor held in Boston from March 9-12. Kolawole's efforts helped her to top-15 placements in each of the two sprint events. Those times also rank first among Wisconsin girls athletes in both events this indoor season.
Diego Serraino, Muskego: Dipped under the 4:30 barrier for the first time in his career at the Performance Running Outfitters Invitational, clocking 4:29.90 to take the win. Now, Serraino sits at No. 5 on the Wisconsin 1,600m indoor leaderboard.
