She plans on attending St. Catherine’s University in the fall and she’ll be majoring in Chemistry. She hopes to continue her softball career at the college level.
“Ashley has always impressed me with the way she approaches life,” said Sis’ biology teacher and softball coach Eric Ruska. “She is able to work hard consistently, she’s a person others want to follow and she’s driven by her goals.”
Cody, the son of Tanya Clow and Eric Werner, participates on the Nordic ski team and the tennis team and is member of the Osseo Senior High School band, choir and orchestra. He is a member of the 2014 All-State Orchestra for Minnesota High School Students.
He carries a cumulative a 3.7 grade point average and will graduate with Highest Honors in the spring. He plans to attend the Musician’s Institute in the fall, studying bass performance.

Both Sis and Werner will now move on to the section 5AA competition.
