The division in which MLHS competed included Howard Lake Waverly, NYA, Sibley East, Lester Prairie, and a few JV teams from some of the larger schools.
The Crusader team played very physical defense and completed a high percentage of passes, earning points for 1st downs, touch downs and extra points. Baden Noennig had a very good summer as QB connecting numerous passes with an outstanding group of senior receivers, including Branden Carlson, Brock Hoese, Matt Menth, and Kenson Boelke.
