Wrestling has a great night

The B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team took first place tonight! They beat second-place Quad County by 40 points with a team score of 180. Five Jaguars took first place, which created the wide gap between them and Quad County. Very cool! B-B-E's Isaiah Gilbert was the tournament M.V.P. and the champion in the 145-pound division with two pins and a 9-7 win by decision in the semifinals.

Next is a dual at Holdingford on Tuesday night to start the Central Minnesota Conference schedule. The Huskers took third place with 120 points at tonight's tournament.

Here's video from Jonah Voss's quarterfinal match. He won this match by a 12-4 major decision and finished in second place in the 160-pound division.

More will be posted late Saturday night, including photos. I had a very busy Saturday, and in my down time - it was family time!

Radio broadcast

I just learned that the season opener for the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team will be broadcast on 106.5 FM The Train on Tuesday night. Bill Dean and Don Leukam are both excited about being able to carry the game.

Be sure to catch the season preview story on the Jaguars in last week's Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper. Coach Anderson gave a great interview, and I was very happy with how the story turned out. It also includes a photo of Anderson and our new C-squad basketball coach. He is one of the most familiar faces for B-B-E basketball fans in recent memory.

For the December 1 newspaper issue, I'll be printing the winter sports schedules for the varsity basketball teams, the wrestling team and the dance team. Also included in the December 1 issue is the broadcast dates for the month of December for 106.5 FM The Train.

I hope you've taken the time to subscribe to the Bonanza Valley Voice. If you haven't, you're cheating yourself!

Speaking of cheating yourself, I hope you got a chance to take in at least one of the performances of B-B-E's fall musical "Junie B. Jones". Here's one of two photo galleries on the Bonanza Valley Voice website: https://bonanzavalley.smugmug.com/BBE-Fine-Arts-2016/BBE-Fall-Musical-Junie-B-Jones

It was a terrific show!

Basketball scrimmage

I was happy to get a chance to attend the boys' basketball scrimmage in Sauk Centre on Saturday afternoon. The B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team scrimmaged against Osakis, Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, Sauk Centre, Royalton and Melrose. Unofficially they out-scored LP-GE and Royalton and played to about a draw with Melrose. Osakis, the first opponent, really took it to the Jaguars to start the day. Sauk Centre was the superior team on the floor against the Jaguars, although from what I heard fatigue played a part in that match up (the third scrimmage of the five).

Here's a little video from the Royalton scrimmage:

The season opens for the Jaguars at home on Thursday, December 1 against Osakis. They won't open up Central Minnesota Conference action until January 3 (home vs. Maple Lake).

Look for a full season preview story with more photos in the Dec. 1 issue of the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper.
