Down the Backstretch strives to be your first stop for news, information, and commenatary on track & field, running, and cross country in Minnesota.
Little mention has been made about the epic team battle in the AA Boy'smeet. Wayzata edged out Eden Prairie, 71.5 to 68. My congrats to the Wayzata team both coaches and athletes. Winning the title without a first place is an outstanding team accomplishment! And to our Eden Prairie squad, five first places, you couldn't ask for more. Bill Terriquez EP Asst. Coach
Thanks for the comments. Yes, it was a more nuanced outcome than Class A. The plans are to do articles on the team competitions in AA as well as Class A.
Little mention also of the girls team from St Michael Albertville battling for the AA title and finishing in 2nd place to a strong and deep Lakeville South team, with just 7 team members. Quite an accomplishment with most of the girls qualifying for the finals in two events. Congratulations girls and coaches for making us proud of your efforts.
Yep, we'll try and get that too. Lot's of good stories every year in the team races. this year maybe more than others.
