Peterson places 86th at state, sets sights on return trip
Hastings High School freshman Rachel Peterson placed 86th at the state Nordic ski meet Thursday at Giants Ridge in Biwabik.
"I thought Rachel skied very well," coach John Dewall said. "For a ninth-grader to get to the state meet, that's great. We told her, there was no stress on her. No pressure.
"She went out and, in both the races, she raced as hard as she possibly could. I thought she did very well. She has some experience for upcoming years."
