Lauren Gerlemann-New Haven Track and Field

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Junior Lauren Gerlemann with the New Haven Track and Field Team.  Lauren helped the Shamrocks capture the district title Saturday.  She finished 1st in the Long Jump, 16-2, 1st in the Discus, 110-8, 2nd in the Triple Jump, 33-9 and 3rd in the 400 with a time of 1:02.60. 

She will compete in the Class 1 Sectional at Lutheran North.

Coach John Tucker says Lauren is extremely versatile. She is capable of competing in a variety of events, which made it difficult to select the top four for competition. He also says Lauren would make a good decathlete. The decathlon is a combined event in athletics consisting of ten track and field events. 

Lauren likes the stress of competition and performs her best when the stakes are high.

Lauren says the new track and field facility is awesome and it makes a big difference in training.
