While you have earned the opportunity to compete, it is not a reward. It is a chance for you to race and add to the historical lore of this program. We are not going to the state meet just to participate, but to try to win it. It is not a celebration, but an extremely grueling race with very high stakes. By now you have received numerous hugs from your mom and heard several old yarns from your dad following your qualification to the state meet.
Weird Uncle Billy and sensible sister Sally have also weighed in to congratulate you. It is time to put it to rest over the next week. Ask your parents to not talk about it all the time and tell grandma enough is enough. Talk about the Republican debates, climate change, Bernie Sanders, anything but the race.
It will be mentioned hardly ever at practice. The state meet is just another 5K to conquer, just another race we always run as part of this program. We need not make special shirts, shave heads, grow beards, or act like you are so very cool. It is just another race. Making our varsity for the state meet is a gauntlet of the expected and unexpected.
First there is beating 70 of your teammates. Then you must perform well at the end of the year in our biggest meets.
Then because of Minnesota State High School League rules that make coaches select their varsity squad 18 days before the state meet you have to be in the right place at the right time with your full body of work.
In the end, I must follow one simple idea: This leaves many broken-hearts and looks of confusion behind. There will be 16 schools competing in the state meet and a large number of non-scoring individuals in the race that will cause confusion as to how the teams are doing.
It is crucial that you all realize that it may be that you are in like 36th place, but you are really in about 15th in the team competition.
Keep cool and realize where in this race you really are.
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: She didn't let that effect her, she said: Drawn to the South Dakota school by being offered a scholarship, Falch is majoring in international politics and plans to go back to Norway and get a law degree when she graduates with the ultimate goal being doing work for a humanitarian organization.
For students at BYU, taking a year or more to go outside the US working for humanitarian causes is part of the curriculum. It hasn't hurt the accomplishments of the school's athletes. Boy's high school Gold champion, Richflield senior Obsa Ali also knew he would have a battle as several other runners including Wayzata's Connor Olson and Perham's Keegan Hurley came into the event undefeated, as did Ali. They were joined by Brookings HS's Addison DeHaven, none of whom could challenge Ali when he unleashed his kick down the final straightaway.
I tried to be patient. He took them to the rise overooking the finish and told Ali that it was a straight shot from there to the finish and this was where he should launch his kick.

Ali made a surge when the pack of five came through the four kilometer mark, he said, and the others went with him. So, Ali settled in and waited for the final stretch where he quickly opened up a gap that grew as he sprinted toward the finish appearing totally in control.
After that he hopes for a top five finish at the Footlocker Championships. The Gopher grad put in a pitch for Ali's next step after defending his track title and helping Richfield's 4 by relay at next year's MSHSL track championships to be a Golden Gopher. Later a recruiter from the University of Wisconsin was making their pitch to Ali and Huberty. Ali had said after his win at the State track meet that he hoped his effort would attract the attention of college recruiters.
Appears his wish has come true.
