Girls golf in the ABC Newspapers coverage area is as strong as ever with Class A state champion Legacy returning several key players. Andover senior Sierra Langlie will attempt to make a sixth state appearance and Blaine will look to duplicate last spring’s successful run to the section team title.
St. Cloud State University sophomore forward Jonny Brodzinski (Blaine graduate) has been named to the 2014 All-National Collegiate Hockey Conference Honorable Mention Team.
Last season Andover upset St. Francis in the Section 7AAAA semifinal before winning its fourth section title in program history.
Blaine led top-seed St. Francis early in the Section 7AAAA semifinal but a combination of making shots under pressure and generating turnovers at the right time helped the Saints earn a 68-54 win and a spot in the finals.
The Bengals wrestled to very lofty results with both state qualifiers placing among the best in the state. Sophomore Malik Stewart lost his section final rematch in the 120-pound state championship to St. Michael-Albertville’s Michael McKee.
Upsets, records and milestones summed up the first round of section boys’ basketball action Thursday night.
