FitzPatrick run among Wisconsin's bestSubmitted: 06/10/2013
Story By Joe Dufek


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.

LAND O' LAKES - The Land O Lakes Area Artisans (LOLA) Center went through some remodeling for its classroom.

After a few months, the classroom is finally finished, and it's being dedicated to a woman who left a big impact on the community.

Friends and family got together to remember Sandra Brown, who shared her love of art with the Land O Lakes community. She passed away in 2010.

Sandra gave her time and skills to areas that didn't have art programs, and they found a way to show their appreciation.

"The space has been enlarged greatly," said LOLA President Lynn Richie. "It was a coffee shop originally. And it's being dedicated to Sandra Hardy Brown, who was instrumental in bringing us money through a memorial fund when she passed away, and it helped kick start our art classes."
