AUDIO: Section Champion Alto Signs To Run For Northern State

A few months removed from capturing the Section 8AA individual championship in the fall, Bemidji senior runner Nathan Alto completed his signing to run cross country and track for Northern State next year in a ceremony Wednesday at Bemidji High School.

While still preparing for the upcoming track & field season for Bemidji, Alto has already compiled an accomplished senior year of running. He raced to individual victory in the Section 8AA championship meet with a time of 16:29.3, while also helping the Lumberjacks claim the Section 8AA team title at the Greenwood Golf Course in October.

Bemidji’s team title–its first since 2016–completed an undefeated season of races for the Lumberjacks during a condensed fall season due to COVID-19 restrictions.
