Osseo sophomore Cade Sanvik makes his move near the end of the race Nov. 6 in the 3A state boys cross country meet at St. Olaf College in Northfield. Sanvik took 24th overall to make the All-State team.

Osseo sophomore Cade Sanvik made his first official state appearance Nov. 6 at St. Olaf College, and he turned it into an All-State berth.

Sanvik, who qualified for state in 2020 despite the meet not being held due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was able to push up the Class 3A state field and finish 24th overall, which was within the top 25 spots for the All-State selection.

Sanvik finished the race in 16 minutes, 15.07 seconds. He was in 27th after the first mile and slowly moved up one spot by the 2-mile marker and another two spots by the finish line.

Sanvik will look to better this year’s finish with two more years at Osseo.
