For the first time since 2017, baseball won the MCAA conference title only losing ONE conference game. With a record of 15-5, it was the best spring in the win-loss column in 5 years. The coaching staff was very pleased with the boys’ performance this year, and we are excited to continue working with them through the summer (via Legion Baseball) to prepare for 2023.

Clay Target: Trap Shooting
The Legacy Clay Target team had another successful season finishing 3rd in the conference overall. Cadence Werth ’22 was 3rd for females and Ben Stroyny ’24 came in 2nd for males. Six of our shooters had 25 straight at least once, and Carter McMullin ’26 had 50 straight at the State Championships. Senior Cadence Werth placed 2nd out of all female competitors at the Alexandria tournament.
The team is already looking forward to the next season of breaking clay and continuing to grow this fun sport!
The Legacy Girls Golf Team had a successful 2022 season. They not only won the conference but also won the Section 4A tournament earning a birth to the state golf tournament. Emily Brandt ‘24, Raquelle Nelson ‘24, Bri Brandt ‘25, and Miranda Demars ‘22 earned All-Conference and Sondra Melby ‘23 and Kaylyn Otteson ‘22 All-Conference Honorable Mention.
The girls started off their state tournament week by attending the State Golf Banquet in St. Cloud where the Legacy girls’ team was recognized as the Section 4A Academic All-State Team and Raquelle Nelson was named All-State.
The girls came into the tournament ranked #2 but despite adverse conditions shot the lowest round they had posted all year and finished the first day tied for first. Emily Brandt posted a personal best round of 81 to lead the field. Day 2 was exciting and suspenseful. With the state moving to live scoring, fans, coaches, and players could watch the lead change the moment the girls would finish each hole. The girls ended up winning the state by 7 strokes. Emily Brandt finished day 2 with incredible poise, posting the second-best round of her life to win the state tournament individually with a two-day total score of 165. Emily became the 2nd Legacy player in school history to win the state golf tournament individually, and the team win marks the Legacy girl’s 4th State Championship in 10 years.
Congratulations to Miranda Demars, Kaylyn Otteson, Hannah Compton, Sondra Melby, Emily Brandt, Raquelle Nelson, and Bri Brandt on their State Championship season!
Despite graduating 5 seniors from last year’s 2nd place State Tournament team, the Legacy boys’ team rebuilt, worked hard, and played well. Ty Nelson ‘26 and Elijah Wade ‘25 earned All-Conference honors, and Even Bovee ‘25 was named All-Conference Honorable Mention. The boys’ team finished their season by placing 3rd in the Section 4A tournament. Ty Nelson shot a personal best 82 on day 2 of the tournament to place 6th individually and advanced to the State Tournament.
Track & Field
The Track & Field 2022 season was a huge success. As we look back on this season, what a year it has been. We have been rained out, blown out by the cold air, snowed out, frozen out, you name it. After all the back and forth scheduling, we were able to have 8 solid track meets. Our goal this year was to change our meets and make sure we experience more challenging competition than in the past years. I don’t think we even thought that the scheduled meets would have as many as 17 teams. Let’s just say the competition this year was much more difficult than last, and we ran with the best of them. Over the course of the year we set 132 personal records, 11 all conference athletes, 9 all conference honorable mention and 12 individuals qualified for the state track meet. We had 3 all-state individuals and 2 all-state relays. As a team we set 5 new school records: girls pole vault, girls 300m hurdles, girls 800m run, girls 4x200m relay, and girls 4x400m relay. Our success continues to come with hard work and growing participation in the program.
