The field was deep and remarkably gifted.

And Sauk Prairie track and field standout MariElla Viola showed she belonged.

Now, after an impressive showing at the WIAA Division 1 state track and field meet last weekend at Veterans Stadium in La Crosse, Viola should be poised for even bigger and better things in 2025.
