  • Aggen gets winning hit for Central in win over PEM
     

    The Central Legion baseball team racked up 13 hits against Plainview-Elgin-Millville, but it was two hits in the bottom of the seventh that were needed to give the locals an 8-7 win a week ago Thursday.  The Falcons scored six runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and another run in the bottom of the sixth but gave up three runs in the fifth and four more in the top of the seventh as PEM tied the game, “forcing the Falcon heroics” in the bottom of the seventh.

     
  • Twins Talk: Quite an endeavor by Trevor Plouffe
     

    Trevor Plouffe has developed into a solid major league third baseman. Trevor was drafted in 2004 after an All-American high school career, chosen in the first round (20th overall) by the Twins as a shortstop. Through the years as he learned his craft in the minors, he was occasionally called up to the Twins when someone was injured. But he would bounce around, playing every position — from short to third, second, first, and even a stint in the outfield.

  • Falcon girls second at state golf meet

    After the Fillmore Central girls made their first trip to the Minnesota Class A State Meet in 2014, the goal was to return in 2015. With only one senior graduating from the ’14 team, that seemed to be a pretty realistic goal.  A third place finish last year made the stakes a bit higher in 2015.  They bettered their 2014 third place performance with a second place finish this year, and again, with only one senior on the squad.  This goal oriented squad has their sites set for 2016.

     
  • Even though the Twins started out slowly, and they have had a recent slump, they are doing well overall and having fun – something that didn’t happen much in the past few years. I love Ron Gardenhire, but I know that Gardy and his staff were burned out. The new coaches are great, and brought a fresh new look to a clubhouse that had grown stale. I like Paul Molitor. He is a friend and a great manager, but I don’t consider him the life of the party.

     
  • Carlson takes state, twice

    R-P/H sent five athletes to state for seven events last week. The boys team came close to glory by placing fifth overall with 39 points. Noah Carlson helped boost this stat with two first place finishes, while Matt Culhane also placed second for discus throw. The boys team wasn’t far away from earning a trophy.

    The first goal at the Minnesota State Track Meet is to make the finals.  You make the finals and you’re assured a spot on the podium (a medal for placing first through ninth), as long as you finish the race.
