Minnesota Coach's Association XC Rankings - 10/30 Update

It has been a remarkable year for the Winona Cotter girls team. In 2016, they finished 18th as a team at the Section 1A Championships. In 2017, with the return of Grace Ping and the addition of her sister Lauren, they won it handily over the second-ranked team in the State. They have not lost to any Class A competition this season save for finishing nine points behind top-ranked Perham at the St. Olaf Showcase back on August 31st. And now, not only have the Ramblers leaped up into the ranking's top two, but a third runner has joined the Ping sisters on the individual poll.
