Two of the Byron-Bergen varsity girls track and field players have broken school records in the pentathlon and triple jump events, and they have no plans to stop there.
Victoria Rogoyski, 10th grader, broke the pentathlon record on Friday, April 22. The pentathlon consists of five consecutive events where a point score is earned for each. Rogoyski ran the 100-meter hurdles in 17.96 seconds, jumped 5 feet in the high jump, 16-3 in the long jump, threw 26-8 in the shot put and ran the 800 in 2 minutes and 51 seconds. This performance scored her 2,527 points, breaking the previous record set by Julianna Holland in 2011 by almost 400.
“I definitely did not do my best in the 800, so I would love to beat it again if I can reach my best in all five events,” said Rogoyski.
This achievement comes as no shock to her Head Coach and father Kenneth Rogoyski.
“She is good at everything she puts her mind into!” said Coach Rogoyski. “Pentathlon is not even close to being her main event. We need her in eight other events!”
It is evident that Rogoyski plans to follow in teammate Sasha Schramm’s footsteps. Schramm, a 12th grader, broke the triple jump record on Saturday, April 30, again. She jumped a 36 feet, 8 and ¾ inches, topping her own record that she has already reset four times this year, and several times in 2021.
"There seems to be no limit to how far Sasha can jump,” said Coach Rogoyski. “She just keeps improving! Who knows what the B-B triple jump record will be by the end of the season.”
Schramm, rounding out her final high school track and field season, has her sights set on competing at a collegiate level.
“I would like to get it to 36 or 37 [feet] because I plan on going to UB [University at Buffalo] and in order to try out for that team, I have to be up in that range,” said Schramm.
Byron-Bergen track and field heads to their final invitational on May 13 at Eastridge High School.
