Wisconsin athletics have countless stories of incredible accomplishments at all levels. Today another one took place that will be remembered for a long, long time. Roisin Willis of Stevens Point has been dominating the track and field scene in high school for quite some time now. Today was just another reminder of how absolutely dominant she has been in Wisconsin High School Track.

I tell people all the time: The most breathtaking moment I’ve witnessed covering HS sports up here was her running the 800 at state as a freshman in 2019. It was bonkers how much faster she was than everyone else. Three years of training later, and this is what you get. WOW.
Wisconsin (and National) High School Track has been put on notice.
