NORTHFIELD, MINN. - Winona Senior High School has a lot of tradition when it comes to cross country.
Garrett Heath and Elliott Heath were state champions all over the place - cross country, skiing, track ... maybe even juggling if it were a sanctioned sport - the two went on to be All-Americans at Stanford and are now competing at the Olympic level.
Jon-Michael Brandt followed in their footsteps and is now a senior at the University of Iowa.

WISCONSIN RAPDIS, Wis. – They finished sixth last year.
This year, the Logan High School boys cross country team aims for more.
The Rangers football team has moved within two wins from a state berth, but the cross country team is already there.
They’re finally here, the dynamic duo. Kevin Love. Ricky Rubio.
Add Nikola Pekovic and his five-year, $60 million contract and there’s a new Big Three in the Wild West-ern Conference.
How long will it last?

Monta Ellis is gone. Brandon Jennings is gone. Gone are 33.1 shots a game for the rest of the team, which basically sat and watched as those two pounded the air out of the ball and then threw up brick after brick – Jennings at 39.9 percent from the field and Ellis at 41.6.
