    On what turned out to be a near-perfect day for running, the Northland Pines boys and girls cross country teams each represented themselves well at the Great Northern Conference (GNC) Championships hosted by Northland Pines and Eagle River Golf Course.
    “As a coach, you can’t ask for anything more than what all our boys and girls did on Saturday,” head coach Don Czarapata said. “You want to run your best in the big meets down the stretch and it was exceptionally gratifying to do so when hosting the conference championship in our own backyard.”
