Christian Patzka (left) and Samantha Herrling both had terrific performances at the Verona Invite last Saturday.

Christian Patzka is in a league of his own in many races right now.

Patzka, a senior at Wisconsin Heights, finished first among all Division 3 runners at the Verona Invite last Saturday. Patzka completed the 5,000-meter course in 16 minutes, 24.7 seconds, nearly 50 seconds ahead of runner-up Ben Bode (17:11.7) of Watertown Lutheran Prep.

Patzka's big day helped the Vanguards finish fifth among the eight teams in Division 3.

Aquinas won the meet with 61 points, while Luther Prep (71), New Glarus/Monticello (73), Whitewater (127) and Heights/Barneveld (129) rounded out the top five.
