Capping a season in which she had been ranked No. 1 all year, the junior dominated the field to win her second consecutive Class 1A championship. Her time of 14:04.1 was more than 12 seconds ahead of runner-up Emily Trost of Cannon Falls.

MARIA HAUGER

Shakopee, cross-country

Hauger ran her way into the Minnesota State High School League record books as the state's most successful cross-country runner. She won her record fourth consecutive Class 2A championship in a time of 13:42.0, shattering the previous best time.

KYLIE SCHWARZ

Wayzata, soccer

The senior midfielder showed off her one-on-one skills, beating White Bear Lake goalie Tarah Hobbs for a goal in the Trojans' 2-0 victory in the Class 2A championship game. She also scored the game's first goal in a semifinal victory over Blaine.

JACOB OPHEIM

The senior midfielder guided the Lightning to the Class 2A championship. He scored on a header in the semifinals, then had two goals, including the game-winner in the 64th minute, in a 3-2 championship game victory over Blaine.
