Albert Lea High School will  host a community send-off for the boys’ cross country team  Saturday morning as they depart for the state meet in Northfield.

The bus will leave from the high school parking lot at 11:15 a.m. All community members are welcome to arrive a few minutes prior to departure to wish the team luck as they leave, according to a press release. 

The plan is to create a tunnel of cars, fans and signs giving encouragement as the bus departs. They will be escorted out of town by Albert Lea Public Safety.
