MONROE - Southern and southwest Wisconsin remains a hot bed for track athletes when it comes to the state meet at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse's Veterans Memorial Stadium. There is no doubt that 2014 was the year of runners in track and cross country. Track athletes brought home more than 20 medals from the state meet including three individual state titles and one team state championship.
