In the boys competition, Lakeville South returns for a chance to successfully defend its state crown. At the 2020 state meet, the Cougars edged Stillwater by three points in the team title chase. Stillwater also returns for a chance to take that next step toward a first state championship since 1981. Other team qualifiers include: Hill-Murray, Woodbury, Brainerd, Hopkins, Edina and Duluth East. Edina junior Adam Berghult was the individual runner-up in 2020 and is one of the favorites in this week’s races. If his pursuit of a championship is successful, he will become Edina’s first Alpine skiing champion since Jamie Engelking in 1993. Other top contenders include Lakeville South seniors Kyle Wentworth and William Nida and Stillwater freshman Cash Jaeger.
In the girls meet, Lakeville North is aiming to claim the state championship for Independent School District 194. In 2019, Lakeville South captured the crown and a year later, crosstown rival, Lakeville North duplicated the feat. Last season, the Panthers compiled 162 points, 15 more than runner-up, Stillwater. Other team qualifiers are East Ridge, Hill-Murray, Brainerd, Orono, Edina, Duluth East and Stillwater. Peyton Servais paved the way to Lakeville North’s team championship with a runner-up finish in the individual competition. The senior is looking to regain her individual title from 2019.
