Not only did the Wildcat boys win another North Central Conference title and advance to the state meet, Humboldt also produced the first four-time individual champion in NCC history when Bryce Gidel won her fourth individual crown in the NCC meet in mid-October.
Those were among the highlights when the squad was recognized at the potluck dinner banquet on Nov. 12 at the high school.
Veteran Humboldt coach Dean Clasen presided over the event in which athletes at all four grades in high school along with the middle school, were introduced.
Also on hand was Humboldt assistant coach Rhonda Van Pelt, along with volunteer assistants Nikki Rasmussen and Austin Read. Middle school coach Dave Orr also recognized his athletes.
