And with most of that roster back this fall, hopes are high in Freeman. “We have essentially the same group of guys as we did last year,” coach Suzanne Koerner said. “They want to improve and have put in quite a few miles over the summer to keep the training going.” The top four runners from a year ago, Haggerty, junior Dane Allison, freshman Thaniel Schroeder, and sophomore Brennan Haggerty, all return to improve upon last season where they finished third as a team in the State Meet. These four work well as a team together and run as a pack consistently according to Koerner. It’s this depth that will be one of the team’s strengths going into the season. “It is hard for me to know who will finish on top on a given day in a given meet,” Koerner said. “They are all fairly matched and push each other. “When one guy has an off day, another will have a good day, they have each other’s back.” Haggerty also enjoys competing with his fellow teammates and spoke highly of his coach. “Out of the other three guys, I think it’s Thaniel that pushes me the most either in practice or in meets,” Haggerty said. “Our coach is great at helping us along emotionally and spiritually, which really helps us out.” Haggerty has goals of Dakota XII Conference LAST YEAR: Hunter Paulsen won the Class A individual championship for the Huskies.
