Charlie, which Danielson from Cathedral? Elena had a great meet last night, running a 14:33 and taking 2nd behind Elk River's Aspengren. Greta took 6th with a 15:15. Race was the Apollo Invite - girl's course runs about 150 meters short of a 4k.

Elena is the Danielson in the Class A rankings ... I mistakenly deleted her first name when I was putting the post together.

Thanks for the clarification - doesn't surprise me! She has looked strong in the team scrimmages and the first meet. Her sister, Greta, is working to get her edge back after her injury last CC season and both are great role models for their teammates (my daughter included!).
