Metro Conference Champions
WISAA State 3rd Place
Coach Norb Wishowski was optimistic about the 1977 team’s chances, despite its youth. The team had only two seniors, co-captains Dan Spacek and Jeff Fojtik. Though inexperienced, the team edged out Pius on October 22nd at the Metro Conference meet ot earn their fifth consecutive conference title. Steve Hessil, Rich Sowlles, Spacek, and Fojtik all placed in the top twelve at the meet. Unfortunately, injuries and illness derailed a run at the WISAA state title, with the team placing third. Sowlles placed 7th a the state meet, with freshman Dave Kaluzny taking 9th and Hessil placing 11th.
