The excitement starts tonight! Jaguars wrestling hosts 8-team tourney, boys basketball hosts Tip-Off Classic, girls basketball at Benson

Next to playoff season, the debut of another athletic season is the most exciting time of the year, in my opinion.

The Jaguars wrestling teams hosts their annual 8-team season-opening tournament today, beginning at 3:30, at the high school gymnasium. Teams included are Yellow Medicine East, New London-Spicer, Willmar, Eden Valley-Watkins, Holdingford, Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton, and Browerville/Eagle Valley. This is the toughest wrestling tournament hosted at B-B-E in many, many years. It will be a ton of fun, for sure. It probably will last until around 10:00pm.

The Jaguars boys basketball team hosts the third annual Tip-Off Classic at the elementary school. At 6:00, Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City plays Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg. Following that game at 8:00, the Jaguars face off with the Chokio-Alberta Spartans. This tournament also includes B-squad.

The third-place game between tonight's losers will be at 6:00 on Saturday night at the high school. The championship will be at 8pm that same night.

The Jaguars girls basketball team travels to Benson for a four-team tournament. The Jaguars face Maccray in the first game, which begins at 6:00. In the second game, the host Braves face Paynesville Area at 8:00. This tournament also has B-squad games running concurrently.

**Just a quick note that I received from our Band instructor, Sarah Hunter...more fill follow over the weekend on this. Jason Davis with the show "On the Road" (Channel 5) will be at John O's Dinner Theater at 5:00 on Thursday, December 8th. B-B-E Band and Choir members are providing entertainment for two hours, from 5 to 7pm. This is very exciting!
