10 days

In just 10 days the opening day of preseason practices for the Jaguars football, volleyball and girls' tennis teams will be here.

One interesting note: for the football team, this fall will be the last year they'll be a member of the Central Minnesota Conference. All other B-B-E sports will remain in the CMC. (Which I believe is a good thing)

The girls' tennis team will have a new head coach. He is current elementary teacher Matt Olson, who taught one of the three first grade sections last year.

On an unrelated note. The Belgrade August Fest celebration is coming up on Friday/Saturday, August 8-9. I hope many of you can make the trip to town and take in all the activities.

I hope you and your family are having a safe and enjoyable summer!

~Pray for peace in this unstable world.

**Athletic meeting is tonight

The curb is being poured today along the B-B-E elementary sidewalk.

The B-B-E elementary school is in the process of getting a brand new parking lot. I am excited! It's gonna look really, really sharp when it's done.

Don't forget about the Jaguar athletics program mandatory paperwork/rules-related meeting tonight at the elementary school at 8:15pm. It signals the start of the 2014-15 athletic season and the end of the summer of 2014! UGH!! It seems like summer just started about 3 weeks ago.

(Photo galleries) 17-U fastpitch, amateur baseball

Here's New Munich vs. Elrosa amateur baseball playoff action from last Sunday:

And here's photos from the 17-U fastpitch league playoffs:

Sorry that I haven't posted much here in the last few days. Summer has been just a tad bit busy!! The rat race continues on Sunday juggling the Glenwood Waterama activities, Elrosa Saints amateur baseball playoffs and then Elrosa Saints Little League playoffs. Luckily the circle between Brooten, Glenwood and Elrosa isn't terribly huge!!

A small glimpse of Waterama 2014:

Staffing updates

I'm very excited to report that we have a new band teacher hired! Plus a teacher for choir as well.

When I get more time I'll post more information, but it's great to say that all but a handful of junior-high level coaching positions are left open. The teaching staff is set for the 2014-15 school year at B-B-E.

In sports news, the B-B-E Jaguars 17-U fastpitch team lost 11-7 in their playoff opener to Eagle Valley last night. Details to follow.
