The Kimberly D1 4x8 is shown with U.S. Marines who were generating enthusiasm for the corps via a pull-up contest during the State Meet. The 4x8 is a grueling event but the Papermakers from Kimberly had plenty of energy to spare. Lead off runner Danielle Van Grinsven set the pull up record for Friday with 16 pull ups. That record held until late Saturday when an athlete performed 17 pull ups. Van Grinsven is shown below in her lead off leg of the 4x8, on her way to 16 pull ups., and finally as a runner in heat 1 of the Saturday 800m run competition in which she placed 10th overall. Oh yes, in the 4x8 the Kimberly quartet [L-R] of Danielle Van Grinsven, Dee Vasser, Samantha Harke, and anchor Jillian Krueger won the Silver Medal in the D1 4x8 with a time of 9:31.35.
