The Chatfield volleyball team lost two games last week to drop to 0-4 on the season, but there are some sparks of improvement from this very inexperienced team.
  • Girls take all six sets against Houston, L/P
    The Spring Grove volleyball team is coming off a busy week with two weeknight wins over Houston and Lyle/Pacelli before going 3-2 at the Waukon Tournament on Saturday.
  • This past week saw the Rushford-Peterson ladies (9-7, 2-2 TRC) losing to Plainview-Elgin-Millville at home before taking to the road where they saw a victory at Southland before dropping three of four matches in the Wabasha-Kellogg Tourney.
  • Lanesboro suffers second state-ranked setback in football
    The Lanesboro football team faced a tough test at state-ranked No. 2 Spring Grove for the Lions homecoming game. The Burros came in after a dominant performance against Mabel-Canton, winning 44-14 the previous week, but LHS couldn’t sustain that momentum as they lost in Spring Grove 49-8. 
  • Mulhern rushes for 100+ yards, but mistakes costly in Hayfield loss
    On the first play of the game Friday against Hayfield in Kingsland’s football home opener, quarterback Ethan Fenske threw a 29-yard pass to receiver Jordan Beck, and Kingsland was in “business.”
  • Lady Falcons take sixth at prestigious Apple Valley volleyball tournament
    The Fillmore Central volleyball team lost a Three Rivers Conference match to Plainview-Elgin-Millville in five sets Thursday and went 2-2 to take sixth place out of 16 teams at the prestigious Apple Valley Aerie Challenge Tournament on Saturday.
  • The St. Johns Eagles opened the soccer season Thursday, Sept. 8, at home by beating the Immanuel Lutheran Crusaders from Lewiston in a tight game. 
  • Chatfield volleyball team drops two more
    The Chatfield volleyball team lost two games last week to drop to 0-4 on the season, but there are some sparks of improvement from this very inexperienced team.
  • Lions sweep L-O at home, Randolph on road
    The Spring Grove volleyball team (2-1) had a busy week, starting with a home victory over Leroy-Ostrander on Tuesday, August 20, before their first road win of the season two days later against the Rockets in Randolph. 
  • Falcons hang on to win opener, travel to R-P for tough game Friday
    If the first two offensive plays of the game Friday night were any indication of the rest of the play for the football season opener at Fillmore Central, it looked like both teams were in for long nights.  
  • Young runners look good  at first cross-country meets
    The Chatfield cross-country team has had two meets already, at Wabasha-Kellogg (W-K Gallop) and Stewartville (Bill Glomski Invitational). The meet in Wabasha Monday, Aug. 29, was reduced to two miles because of the heat and humidity. The race at Bear Cave Park in Stewartville Thursday, Sept. 1, was a full 5K event for both boys and girls.
  • The Mabel-Canton Cougar football team will bring back a good group of seniors who played a key role in last season’s 7-3 record. The Cougars were 6-2 in the sub-district, good for fourth place out of 10 teams. M-C only played in one close game last year, a 22-18 win over Houston, and all the other games were decided by an average margin of 37 points.
  • The Lanesboro/Fillmore Central cross-country teams open up their fall schedules this week. Both teams bring back veteran runners for head coach Ellen Cullen, who’s entering her ninth season as the Burros’ coach.
  • “Every week, every game is a challenge,” said head football coach Jeff Johnson, who is starting his 11th year at the helm of the Chatfield football program. “Our kids came into the pre-season in great shape. It’s a privilege to coach these kids. Their work ethic is great.”
  • Trojan seniors look to lead volleyball season
    For the first time in several years, the Trojan volleyball team is packed with seniors, possibly leading R-P to one of their strongest seasons.
  • It’s 18 straight Southeast Conference championships and counting for the Mabel-Canton volleyball girls as they prepare to open up the 2016 season. Last year’s squad was a very impressive 35-3 overall and 14-0 in the SEC, finishing on top of the SEC East Division.
Climate change

Earth had its warmest temperature ever in 2015 and weather extremes are continuing into 2016, including locally with heavy rains causing flooding. Are you concerned?
