(For week of 10/22/19)
This week's Nicolet National Bank Athlete of the Week goes to Rhinelander High School sophomore Cal Laggis. During the Great Northern Conference championship meet, Laggis had a standout performance and was the only Hodag on the RHS cross country team to earn all-conference honors and finished in fourth place in the boys' division. Laggis finished the 5k course with a time of 19 minutes, 9.8 seconds at Gartzke Flowage Trails in Antigo on Saturday. In the field of 43 varsity boy runners, the top-14 finishers only had four underclassmen, including Laggis. Not only was it a breakout run, but he better his time by 1:42 from the last time they ran the same course at the end of September and was only 38.3 seconds behind first place finisher Eric Kordus of Mosinee on a tough hilly course. Congratulations Cal!!
