Lawson added to that list at the recent Upper Midwest Athletic Conference indoor track and field championships. Lawson won the 5,000 meters at the conference meet and earned all-UMAC honors in the process.

Tartan heads to state tournament
In the Section 4 AAAA boys basketball finals March 5, the No.1-seeded Woodbury Royals met No. 3-seeded Tartan Titans played a torrid, hotly-contested game at East Ridge High School. The Tartan five jumped to an early lead and, despite stiff opposition, never relinquished it. The Titans' stifling defense shut off an almost equally stubborn Woodbury offense to secure a hard-fought 90-78 triumph.
The victory over the Royals won the Titans a trip to the Class AAAA boys State Tournament, which begins March 12 at the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis.
