Conzemius repeats as state champ in two events for Aquinas; other area top finishers
Two state titles, two consecutive seasons. That about sums up Collin Conzemius’ weekend.
The Aquinas High School senior ran away with two titles at the WIAA state track and field championships at UW-La Crosse — again.
The senior repeated as state champ in both the Division 2 100- and 200-meter dashes.
He also was the anchor on a third-place relay team.

Central High’s Bennett Fried took home a silver and two bronze D1 medals — finishing third in both the triple jump, long jump and taking second in the 200 with a personal best time.
