In tennis, both Jack Dodd and Pete Summers will be participating in the state finals for singles after finishing first and second, respectively, in the section tournament. Both Toppers are in action at 8 a.m. on June 4 at the Reed Sweatt Family Tennis Center in Minneapolis. Dodd, who edged Summers for the section individual title, is returning to state for the fourth time.

Finally, in track, a pair of young Toppers have advanced to the state meet at Hamline University on June 5 and 6. Freshman Jack Burt was the section champion in both the 100 and 200, while Ashlee Siegle, an eighth grader, advanced to state with a second-place section finish in the 1600.
