NORTHFIELD- North Woods and Ely runners fared well at the Class A cross country championships on Saturday, Nov. 5 at St. Olaf College in Northfield.
The top individual performance among area runners was turned in by North Woods junior Evelyn Brodeen, running for the combined South Ridge Panthers team. Running on the same course as last year’s state event, Brodeen catapulted from 44th to 16th place among the 159 qualifiers. The Polar League and Section 7A champion clocked in with a time of 19 minutes, 30 seconds, 59 seconds faster than last year. As a top-25 finisher, Brodeen earned All-State honors.
North Woods sophomore Alex Burckhardt also showed great improvement over last year, vaulting from 75th to 44th in the standings with a time of 17:07. Burckhardt shaved 41 seconds off his time from his previous state appearance.
“Both exceeded expectations,” said Panthers Head Coach Jeremy Polson. “They ran exactly how we wanted them to run and got the results we were looking for.”
