MOSINEE - The journey to the state meet began Monday for many Northwoods area track and field teams at the Mosinee Division Two regional meet. 

The Lakeland Union boys 4x800 meter relay team cruised to an easy first place to start out the meet. 

Last year the 4x800 meter relay team took the state title. This year the team consists of three out of four of the same runners. 

"We're looking defend out state championship title from last year and obviously get into the fast heat at sectionals," said senior Kieran Mullen. Mullen also came in first place at the regional meet in the 800 meter run.


On the girls' side for Lakeland, sophomore Ashley Peterson won both the 3,200 meter run and the 1,600 meter run, while Aubrey Anderson took home first place in the 800 meter run. 

Northland Pines had success at the meet as well. Senior Gabby Herfindahl came in second place in the 100 meter run and first in the 200 meter run. She wants to make her fourth trip back to state, but she knows the road ahead won't be easy. 

"It's definitely going to be tough. There's girls that I ran against all four years and I know that they're fast so I just have to put my head down and work for it," said Herfindahl. 

Another standout for Northland Pines was Kirsten Lindemann. Lindemann won the girls high jump with a height of 5'3'' and took home first place in the 100 meter hurdles. 

The top four individuals from each event advance to Thursday's sectional meet at Colby, where they will vie for a spot at the state meet. 

Lakeland Union boys took first place overall at regionals, while Medford took first on the girls' side.
