The New Berlin Eisenhower boys track and field team won the Woodland Conference Indoor Championship by 39 points on April 8 at UW-Parkside.

The Lions scored 131.5 points, well ahead of second-place Pewaukee (92.5), finishing with six first-place finishes.

'These boys would not be denied on Friday,' coach Billy Simon said. 'We have been within single digits of first in indoor conference the last two seasons, and they weren't about to let that happen a third time.

'I am pretty sure the last time Eisenhower won indoor conference was in the early 90s, so it feels good to get back on top. I am so proud of the strides these boys have made, and this is just the tip of the iceberg for them.'

Sean Broihier had a big day (all-conference). He won the 55-meter dash in 6.98 seconds and finished third in the 200 (24.12) and fourth in the long jump (20 feet, 41/4 inches).

Matt Cavanaugh took first in the 3,200 (personal record 10:04.52) and second in the 1,600 with a school-record time (4:31.82), while Jordan Canady won the 400 (53.13) and took sixth in the triple jump (39-7).

Sean Broihier has been a man among boys so far this season, and that didn't spot on Friday. He placed in all four of his events, including conference gold in the 55 dash and 4x200 relay.

Bryce Miller won the 800 in 2 minutes, 6.17 seconds.

'Matt Cavanaugh continued his solid season and successfully took on a tough 1,600 and 3,200 double,' Simon said. 'Despite fighting through some sickness, Jordan Canady had a big day for us as well. Bryce Miller had a monster day. You will be hearing a lot about Broihier, Canady, Cavanaugh and Miller this season. These guys are the real deal.'

Two relay winners were the 4x200 relay with a school-record time (1:34.46 10) behind Broihier, Jake Belongia, Dakota Grzesk and Sean Moore and the 4x400 relay (3:36.28) behind Canady, Stephen Halusan, Tyler Komor and Miller.
