Olson makes all-state, Sophomore 21st in Class A; Prigge climbs to 40th in girls race

by Tom Coombe
Luke Olson felt better - and it showed.
Running at full strength, the Ely sophomore put together his best performance yet at exactly the right time: at last weekend’s state cross country meet.
Olson earned all-state recognition by taking 21st overall in the Class A competition at Northfield.
Olson’s performance was part of a big day at state for the Wolves, as sophomore James Schwinghamer took 47th in the boys race while senior Ryne Prigge closed out her prep career with a personal-best time and a 40th-place finish among Class A girls.
“Everybody was happy,” said Ely Head Coach Jayne Dusich. “It was a great day for us.”
At the Section 7A meet in late-October, Olson was sixth and qualified for state but was a bit under the weather.
Schwinghamer also punched a ticket to state at sections, but like Olson didn’t feel well and had an off day.
