PRENTICE - Qualifying for the W-I-A-A state track meet can be challenging even as a senior in high school. 

One Prentice high jumper made it to state as a sophomore, and has even bigger plans as a junior. 

Peyton Enders will compete in four different track and field events this season. 

The junior hopes to qualify in both a running event and high jump again this spring. 

Enders says he's lucky to have found the one sport that makes him feel on cloud nine. 

"When I get to high jump I am just in my element," Enders said. "I am so relaxed. It's the one thing I am really good at. I know what I am doing. I've never felt better. When you are going over the bar and you just see yourself fly and feel yourself arch over the bar. It's the best thing in the world."

Enders placed third at the Northland Pines Invitational Thursday. 

His main goal this season is to clear six foot five.

EAGLE RIVER - Northland Pines hosted its first co-ed track meet of the season Thursday. 

More than ten teams made their way to Eagle River and a few kids even broke some school records. 

Junior Paige Hickson has had a great start to the season. She broke her second school record.

She set the new indoor pole vault record by clearing 10 foot 9.

This comes after Hickson beat her own school record in the 55 meter dash earlier in the week. 

"It's something that you can put up there and you can leave up there. People are going to see it and you are going to walk through the school so much later and think wow I did that, it was so much fun," Hickson said.

On the track, Three Lakes had multiple first place finishes.

The boys team placed third.  

Senior Jared Zwettler finished first in the 800 and anchored the 4 by 4 relay to add another first place win.

He's already signed to run at U-W Lacrosse but he's not thinking about college just yet.

PRENTICE - March Madness can mean all sorts of things, the NCAA tournament, the end of the NBA regular season and the beginning of spring sports.

Much like many schools in the Northwoods, Prentice track and field athletes have started running the hallways to prepare for the season.

One sophomore even has her eye on the state podium.

But get this - she hasn't even had the chance to step foot on a track in her high school career.

As a sophomore, Serena Moore made the top thirty at the state cross country meet, just seven months after tearing her ACL.

"You have to realize when you get knocked down, anything is possible if you get back up," Moore said. 
"People didn't think I was going to come back at all but I proved them wrong."
