Crosby-Ironton's Danielle Rydberg is the Region 7A winner, and a state finalist, for the Minnesota State High School League's Triple A Award.

She was honored Thursday, Feb. 27, at an award presentation at Amsoil Arena in Duluth, during the Section 7A boys hockey final.

As a state finalist, Rydberg will also be recognized at a banquet on March 23 in Minneapolis. There will be a televised on-court award ceremony immediately following the banquet during halftime of the Class AA championship basketball game at the Target Center.

Established in 1988, the Triple A Award is sponsored by the Minnesota State High School League. The award goes to high school seniors who have a B or better grade point average and who participate in league-sponsored athletics and fine arts activities. Award recipients-a girl and a boy from both a Class A and a Class AA school-will receive a four-year $1,000 scholarship.
