Nicole Larson and Josh Boeder of West Allis Central both closed out the indoor track and field season in style at the state indoor meet on Saturday.
Larson finished second in the pole vault with 11 feet, 9 inches, trailing only Alex Flucke of Ashwaubenon at 12-0.
She had won the event in previous meets, including the Greater Metro Conference Indoor on March 27.
Boeder tied for seventh place in the pole vault with 13-0. The winner was Jake Wallenfang of Green Bay Preble at 15-6.
They were the only athletes to score points for the Bulldogs at the large and prestigious meet. Larson's eight points gave Central 18th place in the 49-team meet, while Boeder's 1½ points left the Bulldogs in 44th.
Tyler Miletti took 20th place in the 1,600-meter run with 4 minutes, 37.04 seconds and Gabby Coto-Valentin came in 18th in the shot put with 33-11.
