Ollhoff garners Athlete of the Week honors
The evening of May 4 would prove to be a night to remember for members of the 2018 MHS Boys track and field teams; especially senior Jared Ollhoff. En route to the boys claiming the title of the 33rd annual Otto Bacher Invitational meet at Jay Stadium, Ollhoff left his mark on the meet for what will most likely be years to come. Not only did he break the 33-year old school long jump record with a mark of 21.5 feet, he also broke the event record and school record in the triple jump with a mark of 44 ft, 11 inches. Ollhoff would go on to claim the high jump event with a leap of six feet and place second in the 4X 200 relay event.
In addition to track, Ollhoff was a 3-year starter on the Bluejay varsity football team as a defensive back and wide receiver as well as a 4-year starter on the Bluejay varsity basketball team as a power forward.
When not competing in local sports, Jared enjoys spending time with family in friends in the outdoors; camping and hiking.
Son of Ken and Cecilia Ollhoff of Merrill, Jared currently maintains a 3.75 GPA. Following graduation this Spring, Jared will be attending UW-Whitewater where he will also compete on the Warhawks Track and Field team; competing in the triple and long jump events.
