During a windy and cool early evening, the Janesville Craig boys and girls track teams blew away Verona in a dual meet at Monterey Stadium on Monday.


The Cougar girls beat their Wildcat counterparts, 79-61, while the Craig boys won their meet, 98-43.


The victory over Verona confirmed what Craig girls coach Mark Marsden already believed about his team.


“Verona is tough,” Marsden said. “I think we’ve face the two of the toughest teams we’ll see in Verona and Sun Prairie last Tuesday. We’re in the mix. There’s no doubt about that.”


Maggie Slatter and Kaylyn Funk were double individual event winners for the Cougar girls.


Slatter won the 100 in 12.52 and the 300 hurdles in an impressive 49.72. In addition, the senior ran the anchor leg of the winning 800 relay team.


Funk, who also is a senior, won the discus with a distance of 100 feet, 3 inches, and the shot put in 35-1˝.


“We swept all three relays,” Marsden said. “I was really happy with that.”


The Cougars also swept the triple jump. Junior Ashley Pohlman won the event (35 feet, 10 inches), with Allison Calkins second at 35-4 and Aisha Coleman third in 35-1.


“To have three of them all go 35 feet was impressive,” Marsden said.


Calkins’ performance was especially impressive. The senior had only practiced the difficult event one day before topping the 35-foot mark.


“It makes you wonder what her top end will be,” Marsden said. “She’s good.”


Calkins won the long jump (16-4) and was third in the high jump. In addition, she also can compete in the shot put.


The Craig boys had a fairly easy time with a Verona team that is highly regarded.


“We did well as a team,” boys coach Jeff Deininger said. “We had a lot of firsts, seconds and thirds.”


Rutger Meister won both the 110 high hurdles (15.32) and the 300 intermediate hurdles (42.67).


Tommy Meister added wins in the 800 (1:57.09) and 1,600 (4:30.11).


“Tommy had a nice time in the 800,” Deininger said. “It was pretty much Tommy going out and running his race.”


Calvin Coleman also joined the list of double individual event winners with first-place finishes in the triple jump (43-0) and long jump (20-10).


Deininger also was impressed with Jacob Wilson’s winning height of 13 feet in the pole vault.


“That was pretty good for sophomore,” Deininger said. “He did well for those conditions. He hung in there.”


The Craig teams participate in the Watertown Invitational on Friday night.
