Paying it Forward
Washburn soccer has received an outpouring of incredible support from fans, parents, and especially from Washburn students. We plan to honor and thank those involved in Washburn soccer at our banquet, but we need to bring it big and pay it forward to a couple of Washburn programs that are also currently in state tournaments or #statebound. Get out this week to support:
- Volleyball: November 4. The girls are currently 27-0 this season and the number one seed in the 6AAA volleyball sectionals. The Millers face off against Benilde-St. Margaret’s on Wednesday, November 4, in the section semifinal at St. Louis Park High School. Match starts at 5:30pm.
- Cross Country November 7. The boys cross country team is in state for the first time in Washburn history. Led by seniors Hamza Ali, Martin Donovan, and Andrew Sell, the team is currently ranked second in the state by coaches, just behind perennial powerhouse Hopkins. The state meet is Saturday, November 7 at St. Olaf College, with the girls Class AA race starting at 10:00am and the boys race at 11:00am. Freshman Emily Covert and sophomore Olivia Orr also qualified for state individually and will be running in the 10:00am race. Pay it forward and get out to support Washburn runners on Saturday for their own historic run.
