A state runner-up finish in the 2A classification is a great start to the season for Surtz. Once again we are witnessing some outstanding efforts from the class of 2022. Surtz did not disappoint in her first year of high school. She had won all but one of her races coming into the state championship. She and Brooke Stromsland battled all the way until the end before giving way and running a crisp 16:35.
