Wolverines step up to challenge

With their usual big-meet options cancelled for the year, the Mt. Lake Area cross country team turned to an alumni to get a big-meet experience. Mounds View coach Ross Fleming invited the Wolverines to participate in its Tom Watson Invitational, which was being held at Anoka High School. The meet had three varsity divisions for boys and girls, with the Wolverines placed in the middle division against mainly JV teams from large Twin Cities powerhouses.
