Let's do this, Jaguars!!!!

Tonight's the night!!! The playoffs heat up like they haven't in years for the B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team. Updates will be posted here after 6 p.m. from Holdingford High School.


Final: B-B-E 32, Paynesville 31!!! The semifinal match was insane. The Jaguars shot out to a 17-4 lead after the 132-pound match, where Tyler Bents won a technical fall 19-2. The score tightened up from that point on, with Paynesville getting within one point at 26-25. Then junior Seth Roering went out on the mat guns blazing and won by pin in the first period!!! That sealed it, putting the Jaguars ahead 32-25.

***Next: K-M-S, in the Section 5A championship at 8 o'clock!!!! The defending champion Fighting Saints won 34-33 over Long Prairie-Grey Eagle/Browerville in the other semifinal match.

Update.....the Jaguars are losing to K-M-S 24-8 after the 138-pound match.

After the 160-pound match, the Jaguars are losing 27-17. Adam Jaeger won at 160 by a 20-4 tech fall.

Here's video from after the Section 5A championship match:

Nine is the new number

It's nine in a row for the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team, and it was quite the win after they defeated Maple Lake on the road by a 51-45 score in overtime. The Jaguars outscored the Irish 7-1 in the extra session.

Terrible free throw shooting came awfully close to ending their winning streak. They made just 11 out of 29 free throws.

In order to make it 10 in a row, the Jaguars will have to vastly improve their free-throw shooting as they will host a very good Minnewaska Area team on Friday (tomorrow).

(Video) Blast from the past! 2013

This video was taken after the Section 4A semifinal game on October 26, 2013 between the B-B-E Jaguars football team and the Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City Falcons. The Jaguars won a come-from-behind thriller 26-22 that night.

Standing on the far right is Tim Wengler, who graduated from Belgrade high school in 1985. In Wengler's senior year, the Redmen finished the season undefeated! Belgrade averaged close to 300 rushing yards per game.
