    I know exactly where this high school is I lived a mile from Minnetonka HS but I attended Hopkins HS so Minnetonka was our biggest rival but this is great national attention for Minnetonka

      The interesting part is that made them exactly tied to the 100th after the first 2 legs. Then both relays then had blazing final 2 legs.

    Brown’s split is incorrect also it was 25.18 so Tonka passed them on Fly leg.
