LISLE, IL - 2 weeks ago, Lakeland grad Delaney FitzPatrick won her second state championship.
Now, she is one of the fastest runners in state history.
FitzPatrick ran the 800 meter run at the Midwest Distance festival in Lisle, IL. Delaney is in the black, and finsihed second in last weekend's race.
Her time was 2 minutes, 11.8 seconds. It shaved 4 and a half seconds off her personal best time. It's also the 9th fastest time ever by a runner from Wisconsin.
The list includes former Badger and Olympian Suzy Favor Hamilton.
Delaney will actually compete for a spot on the U-S Junior National team next week. She could compete at the Pan-Am Junior games in Columbia later this summer. Former T-Bird Marquis Johnson will also be at the Junior Nationals.
Delaney will run both cross country and track and field for Yale.
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
