Lakeland high jumper sets school recordSubmitted: 03/26/2015
MINOCQUA - Not many athletes can say they set a school record in their sport.

Even fewer can say they've done it as a freshman, but Lakeland's Emily Scott is one who can.

Scott is a high jumper for the T-Birds track team, and she set a school record Thursday with a jump of 5' 6".

Even though she's only a freshman, this isn't the first record Scott has set this season.

"I had actually set the record, which used to be 5' 5", last Friday at the invite at Steven's Point," says Scott. "Today, I just wanted to have fun, and maybe break my own record, so I guess that's what I did."

Her new record jump is the highest in the state for Division 2, but Scott has her sights set on even more success.

"I want to have gone to state once each year, win each year, and maybe get a college scholarship," says Scott.

Scott also runs the 4x4, the 55 meter hurdles, and the 100 meter hurdles.

PARK FALLS - The Park Falls and Glidden School districts consolidated to make the Chequamegon School District, more than six years ago. It was a tough decision, but the new athletic program didn't take long to catch on.

"The kids that we have in our program, they want to do well, they have a desire and based on our traditions from our former districts like I was saying, it has carried over," Chequamegon Athletic Director Darren Patterson said. "It's almost an expectation more than anything."

The students saw the merge as a chance to build a strong athletic program in the north.

"I thought it was just a cool opportunity to be able to build our own legacy, build a new tradition," said Chequamegon's Shane Wakefield.
