Two of St. Cloud Apollo’s biggest meets, and important athletic fundraisers, take place at noon Saturday.
In the main gym is the St. Cloud Apollo Invitational gymnastics meet.
It has a strong field that includes Big Lake, Cambridge-Isanti, Centennial, Dassel-Cokato, Moorhead, Perham, Roseville Area, St. Cloud Tech/Cathedral and Wayzata.
Roseville is the defending state Class 2A champion. Perham had a reign of eight straight Class A championships ended by Melrose last season.
Tech, of course, is a long-time area power that has qualified for every state Class 2A tournament since 2006.
Big Lake has 11 state Class A appearances, including a third-place finish last season. Cambridge took seventh in Class 2A last February.
Over at the pool at noon Saturday is the Apollo Invitational boys swimming and diving meet.
The field includes Bemidji, Melrose, Princeton, Sartell and Tech.
Sartell finished 12th at the state Class A meet last season and Melrose has a well-respected program.
Tech finished tied for 37th in Class 2A last season.
