State Track: Championships are family matter for CMCS’ Wubbens


ST. PAUL — Dani Wubben carried on a family tradition Friday at the Class A Track and Field meet at sun-splashed Klas Field.

The Central Minnesota Christian School senior closed out her high-school career by winning her second long jump gold medal in three springs with a winning traverse of the sand pit of 17 feet, 1.25 inches. That gave her a one-inch margin over runner-up Aimee Allen of Mesabi East (17-00.25).
