The St. Olaf High School showcase is always the real unofficial start of the season. It's a chance for 30+ top teams to showcase their squads for the season and the only chance to preview the course at St. Olaf prior to the state meet!
35 boys squads and 34 girls squads will all come together at the course housing the State Championships for the annual St. Olaf High School Showcase. From the far southeast corners of the state to the lakes country near the Dakota borders and everywhere in between is where teams will come for today's meet, and the result will be our first glimpse at just how well these teams match up with one another.
