Gabby Levac—Arrowhead High School

GABBY LEVAC was an outstanding runner for Arrowhead High School between 2007 and 2009.  Her accomplishments became more noticeable in each of her last two years at Arrowhead.  For example, she was third at her Conference Meet and her Sectional in 2007, but improved to second in her Conference and Sectional in 2008.  She then became individual Conference champ and Sectional Champ in 2009.  In addition, she was   D-1 All-State all three years, and D-1 State Champion in 2008 and 2009.  Furthermore, she is not only the former Arrowhead school record holder, but also the former Parkside 4k record holder.

DAVE MAHLIK, of Valders High School, was a successful and influential coach in D-2 for thirteen years, 1986-1998.  During those years, his teams won five consecutive conference titles from 1987 through 1991, and then again from 1993 through 1996.  They won Sectional titles from 1987 through 1992.  They won back to back State D-2 titles in 1988 and 1989, with five other teams qualifying for State as well.  In addition, his 1988 and 1989 teams went undefeated during those seasons.

Zachary Vircks—Stanley-Boyd High School

 

ZACHARY VIRCKS recorded a series of outstanding performances at Stanley-Boyd High School.  First of all, he was Cloverbelt Conference individual Champion three years in a row, 2000-2002.  During those same three years Zach was D-2 individual Sectional Champ, leading his school to team titles in the final two years.  In addition, Zach was the WIAA D-2 State Champion in 2001 and 2002, leading his team to a runner-up D-2 finish at State in 2002.  Vircks was First Team All-State for his final three years, and Academic All-State those same three years.  Zach was also named WIAA Scholar Athlete in 2003.

Jason Wilkinson—Boscobel High School

 

JASON WILKINSON, of Boscobel High School, had tremendous success, both for himself and his school in the late 1980’s.  First of all, he was individual SWAL Conference Champion in 1987, 88, and 89.  During those years he was WIAA individual Champion in 87 and 89, placing second in 1988.  He was Sectional Champion in 1999, and a week later, led his Boscobel team to a fourth place team finish at State.  Furthermore, he was named to the All-State team in 1989.
