HHS grad Kochendorfer headed to nationals
Hudson High School graduate Kady Kochendorfer’s school record triple jump for the UW-Eau Claire Blugolds has landed her a spot in the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships this weekend in Boston.
Kochendorfer, a freshman at UWEC, broke the Blugold record at the WIAC Indoor Championships Feb. 23 in Whitewater with a leap of 38-feet, 2.75-inches to place second and help the Blugolds capture their first WIAC team title. She will compete in the NCAA Division III Indoor Championships, hosted by the University of Massachusetts-Boston March 8-9 at the Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center in Boston.
Kochendorfer was a four-time state qualifier at Hudson and is the school record holder in the 100 meter dash with a time of 12.52 seconds, set at the 2018 WIAA State Championships. She was also a member of the Raider’s fourth-place 4x200 meter relay team as a senior and helped Hudson take eighth place in the 4x100 meter relay while finishing seventh in the triple jump with a leap of 36-10.5.
Kochendorfer is one of eight Blugolds who qualified for this weekend’s NCAA Division III Championships.
