Austin Hanson steps into the head coaching role for the West Central Area boys’ and girls’ cross country teams.
Both WCA teams qualified for the Class A State Cross Country meet last fall, but due to COVID-19, all fall state tournaments were not held. Hanson hopes to keep the tradition of success going into this season.
“Many of our athletes are hungry to carry the tradition of alumni and challenge the top teams in our section to get back to where we were last year,” Hanson told craigolsonsports.com.
The Knights opened the season Saturday, Aug. 28, at Arvig Park in Perham and will run at Breckenridge Thursday, Sept. 1.
