Brainerd Dispatch/Steve Kohls Pequot Lakes Patriot Vanessa Lane (left) and Staples-Motley Cardinal Jaelin Beachy will compete in the Class 1A State Track and Field Meet at Hamline University today and Saturday.

Beachy, Lane ready to cap off prep careers


Jaelin Beachy and Vanessa Lane have a unique rivalry.

It's a rivalry brought on by proximity and success rather than direct competition.

Beachy, a senior at Staples-Motley, is a five-time state meet swimmer. She's a four-year basketball letterwinner and a five-time state track and field competitor and two-time 100-meter hurdle champion.
