PAGE 8: SPRING SPORTS 2016 PRESS & DAKOTAN PLAIN TALK Stratman’s Success Comes Full Circle to high finishes in both. With track back around, Stratman wants to cap a strong senior campaign with even more hardware. “When you have success in one sport, it carries over,” Stratman said. “I had a lot of success in football and basketball this year. It makes you want to do better.” Stratman spent much of the 2015 season battling with BY JAMES D. CIMBUREK Lewis & Clark Conference James.cimburek@yankton.net rival Austin Hegge of Wausa, the 2014 state champion in The state long jump the long jump. At state, Stratvictory by Wynot’s Cody man jumped a season-best Stratman might have been a 21-6 1/2 to edge Potter-Dix’s surprise to some.

In the fall he was a key member of a Wynot team that advanced to the semifinals in the Class D2 football playoffs. This past winter he played a key role in sending the Blue Devils to the state Class D2 boys’ basketball tournament. Part of what has helped Stratman excel in not one, but four, sports is his attention to detail, according to Heimes, who also coached Stratman in basketball. “He wants to do well. He’s a perfectionist,” Heimes said. “He works hard at his craft. He knows how to adjust if something isn’t quite right, especially in track. He knows what his body can and can’t do.” While Stratman is excited to defend his long jump title, he wants to add a few more medals to his resume. “In long jump, I have the school record and I want to improve on that,” he said. “I’m going to try for the 100 and 200 (meter dash) records as well.” Stratman is also motivated to achieve a goal that he likely can’t get done on his own: help the Blue Devils win the team title at a track meet. “Austin (senior thrower Austin Lange) and I are hyped up. We feel like we can win one of these meets,” he said. “I don’t know if, teamwise, we’ve won a meet.” To aide in that effort, Stratman has tried to bring some of the many young athletes for the Blue Devils along. “We have a lot of young talent, and they’re all competitors,” he said. “I try to do my best in teaching them, helping them to learn new things.” Follow @JCimburek on Twitter.
