Savannah Stone 2nd at meet

Pequot Lakes senior Savannah Stone raced to a second-place time of 1:14.90 to lead the Brainerd Warriors girls to second in Thursday’s Hibbing Invite at Giants Ridge.

Stone finished 0.26 seconds behind last year’s state champion, Megan Danelski of Hermantown. Other Pequot Lakes skiers were Maddison Olson, who was 48th, and Alex Stone and Jaden Lindner, who both had incomplete scores.

“We had a good day with the girls team,” Warriors head coach Jim Ruttger said in a Brainerd Dispatch story. “It was a much anticipated meet as we were up against last year’s state champion Hermantown. A lot of girls came through today.”

Ben Thoele raced to a 23rd-place time of 1:31.25 for the Warriors boys, who placed eighth. Pequot Lakes' Tristan Elsenpeter was 63rd for the Brainerd boys.

Brainerd is scheduled to compete at Lutsen Mountain on Thursday, Jan. 10.
