Wolverines turn in strong effort

Competing in sweltering conditions Thursday in Redwood Falls, a lot could have gone wrong for the Mt. Lake Area-Comfrey track and field team at the Section 3A East sub-section meet. Instead, the Wolverines turned in a strong performance against a talent-filled sub-section, coming away with numerous section meet qualifiers. “The first thing I told the kids was how proud I was of their performance,” Wolverine Coach Scott Boelke said. “The kids really showed up ready to perform and left it all on the track. We had a lot of outstanding performances and have a pleasantlysurprising number of kids moving on.”
