Future Stars: 2022 Minnesota Boys and Girls On the Rise

Gabriella Keefer, Saint Michael-Albertville

Class of 2025


Another talented Keefer out of STMA? YES!! You guessed it, Gabriella is the younger sister of Anna Keefer, the 6x state champion and All-American out of UNC. Gabriella is just a freshman at STMA and is entering her second year of track and field, and is already improving on her 8th-grade season with her indoor results. 

Keefer has run in both STMA indoor meets this year and has posted personal-best marks of 7.53 in the 55m dash, 17' 0" in the long jump, and 36' 6" in the triple jump. That is already a 10-inch improvement in the long jump and a 2-inch improvement in the triple jump from her outdoor marks last season.

Her marks put her in the top five for all girls in Minnesota this indoor track and field season and might signal some even bigger improvements to come.
