Winona Cotter’s Grace Ping returned from her first Minnesota State High School League Track and Field Tournament with two gold medals. The Cotter seventh-grader participated in two long distance events at the Class A state meet held over the weekend at Hamline University.
Ping won the 1,600 meter race with a time of 5:02.84. In her other event, the 3,200 meter, Ping captured the gold with a time 10:31.27.
Her two state titles from the weekend bring her overall title total to three. Last fall Ping also won the Class A cross country title.
