Sproul, a sophomore, and Mulligan, a senior, are headed back to this weekend's state meet for a second straight year at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse after combining to qualify in five events including three individual spots and two relays. Mulligan took second in both the 100 (13.14) and 200 (26.6). The standout just missed out on the sectional title in the 200 by .04 seconds behind Janesville Craig's Maggie Slatter, who also edged Mulligan in the 100.
