The Superior track, led by their coach Jamie Toivonen and her staff, who said they worked hard to get their kids ready to perform on the MHSA’s biggest stage.

“It’s a lot bigger of a stage,” Toivonen said in a pre-race interview. “It’s going to be a different atmosphere because they kick the coaches off (the track before the race). For most of the kids (the experience) will be brand new at this time and we have to prepare them on what to expect and give the kids an overview of state. There will be a couple of thousands of people at the state event and it will be way different than any of my kids have experienced.”
