Pair of Panthers earn medals at state meet

Five Panthers made their final representations for the Glencoe-Silver Lake track and field team at the state Class A meet last weekend. Two of those competitors, Zoe Christensen and Brandon Richter, earned their way onto the medal stand at Hamline University by the time it was all said and done on Saturday, June 6.
Christensen, a freshman, was making her first appearance at the state meet after winning the Section 2AA shot put title a week earlier. Richter, a graduated senior, had a few goals left to achieve in his final runs for GSL.
Richter returned to state in the 800-meter run after finishing second at sections. Determined to qualify for the finals after finishing 11th with a personal-best run of one minute, 59.48 seconds last year, he logged a school-record time of 1:56.11 to secure a spot in Saturday’s championship run.
