While there are 16 teams that are on the course, to be in a position to win, we must be focused on two of the teams: Hopkins and Minneapolis Washburn. We should respect these teams to the utmost, but we have no reason to fear them. While our goal is to win the state meet it has to be more specific then that. Our real goal is to win every position in the meet.
If that was to happen we would establish 7 career bests, beat Hopkins and Washburn at every position, and win the state meet.
Regarding the State Meet
If we can just win 4 of the 5 scoring spots we will win. We will be wearing our Nike championship mango orange top and aqua blue shorts. Why do we do this, our school colors are red, white, and black?

Luke Watson and Wayde Hall individual state champions. There are significant course changes this year.

Bates was philosophical about her loss. The Elk River grad had family and friends at the event wearing orange shirts with "We heart Emma Bates" written on them in ink.
While Bates wasn't happy about her performance, her objectives this year are at the end of the season, not now, she said. Houlihan has a similar plan and says she approached the Griak race much as she will the rest of the races this season.
Concentrate on what I can control, rather than worry about anybody else in the race.
