Cassandra Ortberg won two events and Anna Huss won another as the Zimmerman Thunder girls were runners-up behind Princeton in the Granite Ridge Conference track meet Tuesday at Little Falls.

Ortberg, a junior, took both hurdle races. Huss, a senior, won the long jump and took third in the 100 hurdles.

Princeton won a well-balanced seven-team meet with 136.75 points, with Zimmerman next at 112.25. Tigers winning golds were Caitln Reeves (800 and 1600), Taylor Labs (triple jump), and Jadyn Bonasera (discus).

Thunder athletes making all-conference (with top-three finishes) were Ortberg, Huss, and shot-putter Amber Magnuson, who took second.
