William Woods inks 5 in-state recruits

William Woods has added five in-state recruits from the Class of 2023 for the track and field and track and field team.

The list includes Kyle Hagemeyer, an all-stater in both track and field and cross country.

Hagemeyer was eight in the MSHSAA Class 2 State XC Championships this fall - his best finish in four trips to state. He was an all-state each year, taking 14th in Class 2 in 2021 and was all-state in Class 1 in 2020 (9th) and (15th) in 2019.

He's also a state champion in track and field. In the spring of 2022, he was fourth in the 1,600- and 3,200-meter in MSHSAA Class 2 State Championships. He won the state champion in the 1,600-meter in 2021 and was the runner-up in the 3,200-meter.

He didn't get to compete his freshman season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Another distance runner coming is Lucas Morgan from Owensville. He was a state qualifier in Class 3 in 2021.
