I forgot to post this video when I posted the other one I shot at the Sub-Section 5A-North individual tennis tournament a couple weeks ago...this one features Eva Lamprecht, B-B-E's foreign-exchange student who held down the number one singles position all year long for the Jaguars girls' tennis team...

For the fourth year in a row, the Jaguars football team competed in the playoffs at Lester Prairie. They evened the playoff series with Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity last night with a 15-3 win over the heavily-favored Bulldogs.
|After quarterback Brian Goodwin (#5) took a knee for the final time of the game with under 10 seconds on the clock, members of the Jaguars offense are shown congratulating one another on the biggest upset playoff win since 1993 by a B-B-E football team. That year the 4-4 Jaguars shocked undefeated and state-ranked Browerville 22-20 in their playoff opener. The 1993 team joined the 1988 and 1997 teams as the only three B-B-E football teams from 1988 to 2002 who won a playoff opener. Yes, they've been that rare. The Jaguars have won playoff openers since that era in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2012.|
|After the game as players walked off the field, Julius Evenson ("Evy") walked between them giving out numerous pats on the back for the team's performance. He was impressed with the execution and clock management throughout the second half and especially as the final minutes wore down. Evy was on the coaching staff of the Belgrade Redmen football team in 1982 when they went 12-1 and played in the Prep Bowl. He's now a junior high football coach at B-B-E as well as one of a handful of stats takers who help out the varsity coaches.|
|Brittany Roelike hugged and hoisted Kendra Braegelman in the air right after the Jaguars earned match point in a 15-9 game five win. Kendra knocked down the game and match-winning kill to end the Osakis volleyball team's season.|
|What a scene full of emotion! A handful of Jaguars are shown celebrating the game five win.|
Game one final: Osakis 25, B-B-E 23.

The Bulldogs (8-1) host B-B-E on Saturday night in Lester Prairie in the Section 4A semifinals. Exactly 52 weeks prior from then, the Jaguars lost 22-21 in a playoff heart-breaker to the Bulldogs on the same football field. LP/HT ultimately won Section 4A and then lost a nailbiter 35-34 to fellow Gopher Valley 'A' Conference rival Blooming Prairie in the Class A state quarterfinals.

Final score tonight: B-B-E 34, MACCRAY 8. Now 5-4 overall, the Jaguars advance to the section semifinals to face Lester Prairie/Holy Trinity on Saturday night. The Bulldogs (8-1) beat Buffalo Lake-Hector-Stewart 45-12 tonight in their quarterfinal game. BL-H-S finishes the season 1-8 overall; they were the #7 seed in Section 4A.

A very, very special post-game interview on Wednesday night with Ross Rath and Patrick Rooney on KMGK 107.1 FM (Smooth Magic 107 of Glenwood)...
How about honoring the memory of Coach Vos by enjoying the outdoors today with your family?
Thinking about the Vos and Lieser families are going through is tough. It's just hellish to think about Coach Vos's two children growing up without him. It's almost too much to think about.
Mass of Christian Burial for the late Rich Vos, former math teacher and coach at B-B-E, drew over a thousand friends and family members to the high school gymnasium today.

The Jaguars reached their helmets to the heavens tonight with heavy hearts following their first-ever win over Eden Valley-Watkins in football...
Something to be proud of: the Jaguars finished 4-3 in the Central Minnesota Conference this season, which lands them in a tie for third place with Maple Lake. It's only the third time in B-B-E school history that the football team has finished with an above-.500 record in conference play. The other two seasons were in 1988 (4-0 and Prairie Lakes Conference champions) and 2008 (4-3 and tied for 3rd with Maple Lake and Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted in the CMC).
|The team gathered for a photo before taking on Eden Valley-Watkins tonight.|

Well, it's a little after 1:00 and I still can't believe this. I do not want to believe it! How do you function on a day like today? B-B-E is a very closely-knit school district and community. We take immense pride in how hard we work, how hard we play and how much we help one another when times are tough.
