Dennis Anderson of the Star Tribune and 1500ESPN radio called me Brian Wray about a short chat about biathlon in Minnesota. I agreed to go on his radio show this evening on 1500 AM at about 6:10pm as part of their weekly outdoor sports show, talking about the details of biathlon and biathlon in Minnesota.
Not sure how far out of the cities that station’s signal extends, but we’ll be on air! It looks like they also stream online: https://live.1500espn.com/listen/
Good Morning Everyone!
Looking over the recent Section meet results, it looks like the MNBiathlon crew will be having a big reunion at State! Aside for a couple that were sick, and one recently injured in soccer, it looks like a pretty full crew.
Our congrats go out to:
Cheresa Bouley 3rd in section
Emma Stertz- 2nd in section
Maj Lis Helmer
Garrett Beckrich 1st in section
Sam Stertz 3rd in section
Also should note that Lochlan Baird—recent biathlete from Hibbing also made the cut.
My apologies if I missed anyone!
So good luck to all—and stay warm!!
