Q: Favorite part of freshman year so far?

A: Probably just being in high school and getting to be in the student section.

Q: How was the switch from the middle school to the high school?

A: It was a pretty easy switch. I think the hardest part was how much homework you get in high school vs. middle school.

Q: What activities are you involved in?

A: I am currently on the Sartell Dance Team, and I really enjoy it. I like how it’s a school sport now because in middle school it was just studio dancing.

Q: Opinion on Blake and Riley Hartwig?

A:They are both really chill people and very caring. Riley is going to college at the University of Mary in North Dakota and this is his second year going there.
