Running against five other teams, the Maple Lake Irish cross country team competed in the Delano Invitational on Sept. 12. With cool air and the sun shining, it made for an awesome day for a run.
Racing against the Irish were four new teams they hadn't seen at any meets. 
The girls varsity team had good competition against the Waconia Wildcats. Standing still in the sun, waiting intensely for the gun to go off, the girls were ready. On their way through the winding trails, the Irish kept near to the top and ran strong to stay with the Wildcats. The course consisted of a downhill winding trail and going down always means climbing back up. To finish the race, a long and large hill remains, but the Irish girls ran strong and gave it all they had to finish their race.

Irish girls rally in final three games to beat Lakers

 

“Even though we were down the first two games we never got down on each other and we stayed motivated the whole time,” senior Kelsie Kelm said after a winning effort against the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Lakers, on Sept. 5.
Game one was a challenge for the Irish. Competing against strong serves, the Irish defense couldn’t return the ball as well as they hoped. Though they played hard, the game resulted in a 27-25 loss for the Irish.

Crusaders compete, but can’t beat the Irish girls

The Maple Lake High School gymnasium was filled with rallied fans excited for the new season of volleyball on Sept. 3. Students and families were there to see the first home game for the Irish volleyball team against St. Cloud Cathedral Crusaders.The team came into the match knowing they were under-estimated because of their age. With six seniors graduating last year, there were many spots to be filled on this year’s varsity team. The young team faltered and lost the first game of the set 22-25. Despite losing the first game, the Irish didn’t let their inexperience become an obstacle.
