I am the sports writer for the Woodbury Bulletin and South Washington County Bulletin. I'm a graduate from the Greenlee School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Iowa State University and have always had a passion for sports since a young age. Whether it was watching or playing sports, I always knew sports would be in my career. I've been born and raised in the suburbs of Minneapolis and look forward to continuing to learn more about the Woodbury and Cottage Grove area throughout my time in this position.

Morgan and Mackenzie Werner had a lot of family meetings when they were younger. The family would sit in the living room and talk about serious discussions for an hour or two. Some of those discussions were just updates, but some of them involved action in the sense of moving to another city or state. Whether the Werner family was in Wisconsin or Nebraska or Minnesota, they were always around for holidays and other events going on throughout the year.

It was a big transition from the first invitational to the second invitational for the East Ridge, Woodbury and Park boys and girls cross country teams. The first course was flat and a fairly easy course to run, which helped the runners gain some confidence and understanding in the first race of the season. The second course, that was run on Thursday night, consisted of many hills and some terrain that became an adjustment for many of the runners throughout the early evening.
