11 Wolves placed in the first invitational of the season and the team earned first place at BBE last Wednesday.
The turkey on Thanksgiving last Thursday was well-deserved for the Wolves wrestlers as the team won its first tournament of the season last Wednesday. The Wolves had 11 placewinners on the day to score 152 points and beat out six other teams, including the hosting Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa Jaguars...
Finishing off close games was a constant struggle for the Blue Devils girls hockey team last season. The team finished just 3-6 in games decided by two goals or less. The team may be starting to turn a corner in those games after last weekend. The Prairie Centre girls competed in the Willmar...

After losing all their starters and most of the scoring from last season, it was a big question mark of how the LPGE boys basketball team would play together coming into the season.

Coming into the season, the biggest question mark for the Upsala boys basketball squad was where the scoring was going to come from. That may have been partially answered after just one game as senior Brandon Wolbeck made his presence known by exploding for 28 points in the Cardinals’ 81-39 win...
