NORTHWOOD – AGWSR's Aubrie Fisher is a 16-time state qualifier after punching her ticket to four events at a Class 1A state-qualifying track and field meet at Northwood-Kensett High School on Friday.


Fisher heads to state in the 800, 1,500 and 3,000-meter running events, as well as on the anchor leg of the school-record-breaking distance medley relay along with Alyssa Hames, MaKenna Kuper and Ali Gerbracht. Kate Pfaltzgraff added an at-large bid in the 400 hurdles.


"Now I can say I've gone to state 16 times in my career, it's really exciting," Fisher said.


Fisher's times are seeded 2nd in the 800, first in the 1,500, second in the 3,000 and AGWSR is seeded second in the distance medley.
