Congratulations to the cross-county team! The team went to Grand Marais for the Polar League Conference meet. Our junior high started the day off with Aurora Gervais taking second, and new team member Nevaeh Manninen coming in eighth. Our JV runners were awesome with Amber Collman getting third, Maddie Running taking seventh, and Damion Warren fighting for ninth. Earning All-Conference honors were Noah Foster placing second, Cameron Dickey getting fourth, and Ben Hansen destroying two in his final sprint for eighth place. And lastly, Cromwell-Wright again has a Polar League champion! Emaleigh Olesiak dominated her race, taking first place by roughly 30 seconds. The team had many team members getting personal best runs and everyone ran awesome. The last regular season meet is Tuesday in Proctor. Great job, Team — we are so proud of the great work you are all doing ~ from coaches Mr. and Mrs. Koenig.

We do thank both of them for the fine service over the past decades and hope their future is picking up (hee hee!).
