LA CROSSE - Steve Christiansen couldn't think of a better graduation gift then to win the WIAA Division 2 state championship in the 3,200-meter relay Friday, May 31 at Veterans Memorial Stadium. It's the third straight state championship for the Cheesemakers. Christiansen teamed with junior Jake Hirsbrunner, senior Alex Barenklau and junior Ethan Moehn to win the 3,200 relay with a time of 7 minutes, 52.75 seconds, which was about two seconds off their state record time last year.
