Benning, Peterson qualify for state ski meet
One familiar face and one new face will represent Hastings at the state Nordic ski meet on Thursday in Biwabik.
Rachel Peterson, who qualified last season, qualified again this year.
For the boys, first-year skier Zack Benning has qualified.
For Peterson, a sophomore, earning a trip back to the state meet caps off a year full of hard work. Her goal since last February was to get back to the state meet.
