MONROE - Jim Ingold has been to the top of the mountain, winning WIAA state championships with the Monroe High School boys cross country team in 1973 and 1974. Now, as a co-coach and father, he gets to motivate and cheer on his two sons, Parker and Drake, as they look to run for a state title. Jim Ingold said there are about six teams that can contend for a state championship at the WIAA Division 2 state meet Saturday at the Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids.
