RHINELANDER - Three racers from the Hodag BMX Club took first place in their Division at the State Championships in Oshkosh this weekend.
No one in the club placed lower the fourth.
Coach Robbie Deede said the Hodag BMX program continues to grow better and stronger each year.
He was proud of everyone who competed this year.
"There's been a lot of effort from all these kids that went down there. You have stumbles, falls, and highs and lows. It's cool to see them continue to work towards that goal and bringing back those plates to Hodag BMX," said Deede.
Ashton Swaney, Raven Strutevant and Robbie Deede all brought home the state championship in their class.
Deede says BMX is a positive outlet for kids to get out their energy.
"Some kids can be hyper before they get to the gate. Some kids are kind of calm. But the one thing is that for a brief 30 seconds to a minute all you focus on is going around the track," said Deede.
Deede encourages anyone who is interested to come out to the tracks.
They hold sanction races on Fridays.
