Comnick, The weather is quite a bit different than last year. Many of Hanson, you had already been on thegolf course often by this time last year. Hopefully it will warm up soon. MounWln Lake and Southwest Christian of Edgerton again are representing our area at the state tournament this week. My hometown of Upsala is also in the tournament with a 30-0 record. I drove up to Williams Arena last Thursday to watch the first day of the girl's basketball tourney. Upsala had made it to the state tourney for the first time ever in girl's basketball. Even though they lost-it was a great experience supporting the hometown team. Upsala has a population of 400 and they are not paired with another school. Another observation from the state tournament was that seven of the eight schools in the class A girls basketball tour- nament had 8th grade students either starting or playing major roles in their team's success. Minneota was the Class A cham- pion. The winter athletic season awards were announced last week. Four students from WWG lettered in TMB/WWG wrestling this year: Anthony Koch, Cole Olson, Brandon Balsavage, and Brennon Cooley. In basketball, Taylor Lindaman and Paige Erickson were named all-conference. Dayna Comnick, Elizabeth Woelber and Alex Knutson were name honorable-mention. Erickson, Lindaman and Andy Merrick will be participating in the annual Orth Foundation Basketball Jamboree this Friday, March 22 at Fairfax starting at 6:00. This is a game between the Red Rock Conference senior players and the Tomahawk Conference senior players. NBA mascots, the Alexandria Aces, NBA dunking teams and some local groups will also provide entertainment that evening. All proceeds raised will go to area students who have had major medical expenses.
