As the miserable spring weather lingered, Langlie fell back on her greatest strength to get prepared for the season.
“My strongest point is positive thinking,” the junior said. “Even though the weather was pretty bad, I kept thinking about what was going to be good. Positive thoughts, positive outcome.”
Clearly Langlie is onto something.
Andover finally played its first three meets of the season last week and Langlie won all three. Her most impressive outing was the first, when she shot an 80 to win the 114-player Elk River Invitational.
“In all the years I’ve played there, that’s my first time placing and it just happened to be in first place,” Langlie said. “So that was pretty awesome.”
She also shot a 1-over-par 37 to win a dual meet at Edinburgh USA and a 2-over 39 in cold, windy conditions to win a triangular at Bunker Hills.
Langlie insisted her ability to adapt to tough conditions was her biggest advantage.
“I’ve played the game a few times before, so it wasn’t that hard. It’s all muscle memory. It was great just getting outside and playing. That made it easy to keep a positive attitude.”

Taking over as the Packers’ No. 1 catcher as a freshman, Barnes clearly was not overwhelmed. In four games — three of them victories — she was 10-for-13, including going 7-for-7 with two homers, two triples and two doubles in a doubleheader split against Richfield.
