2021 MINNESOTA MULTISPORT HONORS - 2021 was a great year for Rookies, and juniors, too. We managed to narrow the teen field to five, which means that several talented athletes, e.g. CARSON DEICHMAN, 18, Mankato (1st overall at Bluff Creek , 2nd / Junior course record at Buzz Ryan), ARIANNA WERTS, 19, Rochester (AG Record @ Buffalo Olympic), NATASHA SORTLAND, 16, Mazeppa (6th - 1st Junior @ Heart Of the Lakes), CAROLINE PETERSON, 19, Northfield (2nd overall woman @ Heart of the Lakes Sprint), and especially MORGAN BELL, 18, Osseo (Top 10s / AG wins at Timberman Sprint, Chisago Sprint and Green Lake Sprint)--didn't quite make the cut. In their defense, most either didn't meet the three-race volume minimum, or their resumes included regional and National Draft Legal results that, in most cases, don't apply in MMH deliberations....
