“State was this past Saturday, and our girls (Brookelyn and Cailyn Kuechle) maintained their times well. It was a very cold day and during the usual, aggressive start, someone was pushed onto them, causing a bit of slipping. However, they recovered well. Brookelyn placed 81st with a time of 20.30, and Cailyn had her best state finish with a place of 98 and a time of 20.38. Teams that qualified in our section were Staples-
Motley with a fifth-place finish, and Albany, with a seventh-place finish. The HL-W-W girls’ team, which won our conference, placed third. Lots of talent in our area. Thank you for your support this season.”
