Coach Hansen, It was another cold windy day, but the Huskies worked hard all day against some tough competition. The girls may not have brought home any medals, but they competed well and the girls set 5 new PRs. We also had three boys set new PRs as well.

The Huskies will travel to Phillipsburg Tuesday to compete in the Logan Invitation and then to Mankato on Friday for the Rock Hills Invitational.
