MONROE - The one-two punch from Baraboo was too much for the Monroe High School boys cross country team to overcome in a battle with the Thunderbirds in the Badger Challenge on Tuesday at Twining Park. Baraboo had the top two runners in the junior-senior race en route to winning the meet by a combined 1 minute, 44 seconds over Monroe. It marks the second straight year Baraboo has captured the Challenge team title.
