Junior Katie Burandt expressed her thoughts on the rest of the season.
“We are expecting a strong finish,” Burandt said. “The coaches always tell us to be prepared for May because that’s when everything counts. I know a lot of hard work is going to be put in to be the best team we can be for sections and possibly state.”
The team only has a few meets left before their conference meet on May 22 and sections May 29.
Those who advance to state will compete starting June 7 at Hamline University.
