Jessica Maroszek Sets All-Division Shot Put Record

Seymour senior and University of Kansas recruit Jessica Maroszek set a new D1 and All-Division record with a throw of 49' 04.25 in the shot put. Terry Simonson from Racine Case had the old record of 46' 11.50. Simonson's throw came in the 1974 State Meet which was held at Monona Grove.

Maroszek who was the 2009 D2 shot put [44' 03] and discus [139' 05] champion had a big weekend as she also won the discus event with a throw of 157' 04 [season best of 163' 08]. Maroszek faced an outstanding field of throwers. University of Wisconsin recruit Angela Boushea was second in the SP [47' 04.25] and discus [148' 08] events.


D1 SP award winners L-R: Alissa Rausch [12, 5th, 42' 10, Wausau West], Tina DeLakis [12, 3rd, 46' 00, Eau Claire Memorial], Champion Jessica Maroszek, Angela Boushea [12, 2nd, 47' 04.25, Monona Grove], Marissa Theys [12, 4th, 43' 01, Green Bay East], and Jamie Lindstrom [11, 6th, 41` 08, Hudson].


Joe Frontier's photographs [clockwise from above left] show Angela Boushea, Tina DeLakis, Alissa Rausch, and Jessica Maroszek in shot put competition at the 40th Girls State Meet. Five of the six athletes below will graduate this year. Their performances are now part of the history of track and field in Wisconsin. Their talent will be missed by track fans but now a new group of throwers in D1 will have a chance to make their mark in the shot and discus events.

Behind The Scenes: Field Throwing Events



Dick Lambrecht [left] field event judge brings a discus for weighing and measuring. Only those discs that meet specifications are allowed for competition. One school [will remain un-named] had all of its discs rejected. Another school allowed that school to use its disc. However the school that 'loaned' its disc had its other discs rejected because of weight or thickness violations. That meant that two schools were using the same disc which was risky at best. The old saying 'no good deed will go unpunished' fortunately did not occur. Another school arrived too late to La Crosse to have its implements certified. This puts officals in a bad position as everyone wants athletes to be able to compete.
