Wins on the home diamonds

The B-B-E Jaguars fastpitch team picked up their first win of the season by a 6-2 score over visiting Swanville on Friday. They're now 1-10 overall heading into a home Central Minnesota Conferendce doubleheader against Kimball Area (6-2, 4-1 CMC) on Monday that begins at 4 p.m.

I missed on reporting these scores on Thursday night. The Jaguars fastpitch team traveled to Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted for a CMC doubleheader. HL-W-W swept the series with 11-3 and 15-4 (5 innings) wins.

Here's video from the end of the fastpitch game on Friday:


At Elrosa, the B-B-E Jaguars baseball team won the first game of a CMC doubleheader by a 4-0 score over Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted. In game two, the Jaguars led 6-0 through three-and-a-half innings before the Lakers scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth. It ended up being the only inning of the whole night that HL-W-W put points on the scoreboard at Saints Field, as B-B-E won the nightcap by an 8-3 score to improve to 6-1 overall this season. B-B-E's defense allowed just seven hits across both games.

The Jaguars are 5-1 in the CMC and have an important rematch with Paynesville Area next Monday on the road. Since handing the Jaguars their only loss of the season by a 7-2 score, the Bulldogs have gone 3-4 and stand at 3-3 (fourth) in the CMC. B-B-E is in third place in the CMC behind Maple Lake and Pierz, who are both still unbeaten in the CMC at 6-0 and 5-0, respectively.

Here's video from Elrosa in game one of the doubleheader:


At New London-Spicer, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' golf team took second place with a 391. Taking first was Lac qui Parle Valley with a 367. The girls' golf team's next action is on Tuesday, May 2 at Lakeview in Cottonwood.

Enrollment

I just read in the Kerkhoven Banner that K-12 enrollment stands at 685, according to an article published in the April 20 issue. That number is very close to the last enrollment numbers I saw for MACCRAY and also West Central Area.

Meanwhile, B-B-E's enrollment is just over 600. The latest figures I saw showed that the K-12 enrollment is just 605.
