Bemidji High School 4x800 relay team wins state championship


At 9:30 a.m. on a Saturday many of us are relaxing at the kitchen table, sipping on our second cup of coffee or tea and scanning the newspaper.

Saturday morning is a time to relax and decide what the rest of the day will bring.

The Bemidji boys 4x800 relay team had a different Saturday agenda, however. For the four Lumberjacks on the relay, relaxation had to be put on hold because they were trying to win a state championship.
