Next year we are moved to Section 5! This is a good change. There are many strong schools in Section 5 but we will no longer be in the same section as Wayzata and Eden Prairie (at the state meet they scored 6th and 7th for boys, 1st and 4th for girls respectively). Now our section consists of Anoka, Andover, Blaine, Champlain Park, Coon Rapids, Elk River, Maple Grove, Mora, Osseo, Park Center, Rogers, Spring Lake Park – St. Anthony, and Zimmerman.
Finally, I appologize for the delay! After some back and forth the banquet date is set for March 19th in the Elk River High School commons/cafeteria area from 5:30pm to about 7pm. This will be a potluck for all families. To divide up the food so that people don’t bring all desserts…
- Middle School – Beverages
- Freshman – Salads
- Sophomore – Bring appetizers
- Juniors – Main meal type foods
- Seniors – Bring desserts
We look forward to seeing you there! If you still have rollerskis from last summer – you need to bring them to the banquet. Even if you plan on renting a pair again and want to just keep them at home… Bring them in!! Also, if you missed the equipment check in please arrive 15min early to check in your equipment before the banquet.
