Submitted photo. 6th grade boys basketball The 6th grade boys returned with high hopes for this year after a great season last year. All four- teen players returned this year. The first team the Chargers played this year was Windom. The team came out ready to pla: and executed their offense well and played great defense. They were able to play a great transition game rebounding, and getting into scoring position before Windom could get their defense set up. It was a great team effort, with everyone contributing to the game by playing together as one unit. WWG was able to win easily, by a score of 33- 11. The next team to play the Chargers was Tracy. This game became more of a defensive battle with both teams struggling to put poihts on the board. The Chargers played hard. but came up one point short for their first loss of the year, 16-17. Next, the Chargers went to Round Lake to play in the SVRLB tourney. First up for the Chargers was Lake Park, IA. Lake Park was a small, quick team, but they were unable to overcome WWG greater size and team work. The Chargers also shot much better from the free throw-line than they had done against Tracy. In the end. they were able to win by' a score of 31-14. The championship game was played against Adrian. Adrian was a well-balanced team that had two excellent team leaders that were diffi- cult to stop. Despite shoot- ing over 50% from the free- throw line. they lost to a fine team, 21-30. Next SSC came to the WG gym to play the Chargers. This would prove to be WWG's best day of the year, shooting 62% from the free-throw line and were able_to control both boards. Team participation was the key to this win, with 9 mem- bers of the team getting into the scoring column and all 14"players that played get- ting at least one rebound. In the end, this team effort gave them the win 45-21. Red Rock came to play in the Walnut Grove gym next. Red Rock had several play- ers that matched WWG in size, but they were not able to keep up with WWG speed. Red Rock played a slow game, and the Chargers played a fast-paced game. The Chargers out scored the Red Rock team to win 42-21. The WWG tourney was held for the boys in Walnut Grove last weekend. Four teams participated in this tourney: Red Rock, Windom, MCC, and WWG. First up for the Chargers was Windom. WWG had easily won over Windom in their first game of the year.

Eligible tree practices inchlde tree/shrub establish- ment, windbreaks and wind- brea k/shelterbelt renova- tion. All practices are sub- ject to NRCS technical stan- (lards.
