When results from the Minnesota FFA State Convention’s small animal/veterinary science Career Development Event were finally released, one Cottonwood County team was among the top five.
Mt. Lake’s team of Meesha Hoek, Brody Kleven, Brooke Naas and Kaelynn Pietsch placed third in the CDE and all four team members earned gold status.
Hoek finished just out of the top 10 in 11th place, followed by Kleven in 15th, Naas in 20th place and Pietsch, 36th.
Westbrook-Walnut Grove, meanwhile, finished 18th, led by Cole VanDeWiele in 31st place and Orio Knakmuhs in 44th. Both earned gold awards.
Windom, meanwhile, finished 34th.
Results also were finally released Friday for the horse evaluation CDE. Windom’s team placed 47th.
Results of those two CDEs were delayed due to a one-week review of results.
