Got Game: Ben Saxton

By Christopher Parish

Name: Ben Saxton
School: Lakeville North
Sport: Nordic Skiing

Got Game: Saxton was the heavy favorite heading into last year's state meet. He'll be the heavy favorite heading into this season as well. Last winter he emerged victorious in the state pursuit race, winning the individual title by a nine-second margin thanks to his efforts in both the classic and freestyle disciplines. (You can check out highlights of the classic pursuit race by clicking here.) Saxton also won the District 1 crown by a wide margin. Look for his senior campaign to be just as successful.
