Snow in April

The students were pretty excited to get out of school early once again...we've skated by a few weeks now without any early outs, two-hour lates or entire days closed at B-B-E. That ended today.

Elementary maintenance workers were busy clearing sidewalks and areas of the parking lot ahead of the arrival of the school buses to bring the kids home at 1:00.

While it's not unprecedented to have a big snow fall in the middle of's definitely not welcomed! Golden Valley today:
B-B-E National Honor Society members volunteered at Second Harvest Heartland in Golden Valley.  The group packed over 10,000 pounds of potatoes for families in need of help.

What a day! And the snow keeps coming down. It's gotten pretty bad in the Sauk Centre area.

And the photo gallery from yesterday's game:

Season opener!!

Brian Goodwin (5) runs back to the dugout with Justin Schmitz at his side, after Goodwin scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the 7th inning tonight.

The Jaguars baseball team won 6-5 over Upsala/Swanville Area to open the season today in Regal. The Patriots led 5-0 after 6 1/2 innings, but the Jaguars rallied with 6 runs in the bottom of the 7th. Trailing 5-4, Alex Schumann knocked a two-out base hit into center field to plate two runs to end the game. Justin Schmitz and Brian Goodwin were walked on two outs, and James Kuefler was hit by a pitch to load the bases and push across runs for a 5-4 score. Schmitz then tied the game on Schumann's base hit, and Goodwin slid safely home just ahead of the throw from center field for B-B-E's 6th run. (Check out video of that sequence below.)

Here's some video from the end of the game...I ran out of memory a little too soon unfortunately, and missed the post-game celebration.

Up next is another home game in Regal on Thursday at 4:30 against Holdingford. Hopefully the snow holds off!! We could get 3-5 inches on Wednesday.

The Patriots fell to 1-2 on the season with the loss. The Huskers are 1-0 and beat USA 13-3 in their season opener last Friday in Holdingford.
