When Emi Trost won her 1,500-meter heat Thursday at the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track and Field Championships, she did so with a time that was considerably slower than the Minnesota Duluth sophomore's school record. That meant Trost had plenty in the tank for the fierce Florida sun during Saturday's finals. Trost cruised to victory in 4 minutes, 12.64 seconds, breaking her school record (4:13.51) by nearly a second and beating runner-up Sarah Berger of Walsh University by 6.5 seconds.
Hannah Mihalik was 3-for-4, including a pair of doubles, with four RBIs to back her three-hit pitching performance in Hermantown's 10-3 win over Cloquet during the Section 7AAA high school softball playoffs Saturday at Braun Park in Cloquet.

The winner of that game moves into the section final of the double-elimination tournament. Hermantown slugger Jordyn Thomas was 3-for-4 with two doubles and an RBI. Chisago Lakes 9, Grand Rapids 1
