Girls' basketball team seeded 6th along with a ton of excitement!

The Jaguars huddle up during a late timeout against Rockford on January 24.

The B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team opens the sub-section playoffs with a first-round game next Monday on the home court against #11-seeded Wheaton/Herman-Norcross. Tip-off is at 7:00pm. If the Jaguars win the play-in game, they travel to Brandon/Evansville for the Sub-Section 6A-South quarterfinals on Thursday, February 28 for a 7:00pm tip-off against the #3-seeded Chargers (12-9, 7-5 Little Eight Conference).

State-ranked Parkers Prairie (20-1) is the top-seeded team in the sub-section.

W/H-N had a fantastic volleyball season, compiling a 26-2 overall record before falling in a five-game marathon to Underwood in the Sub-Section 6A-South championship on November 1. They haven't fared so well on the basketball court, however, as they are 3-14 overall this winter with a 1-5 mark in the Pheasant Conference.

For the Jaguars, the 6th seed is their best playoff ranking since the 2008-09 season, when they were ranked 5th and fell to New London-Spicer 50-39 in the Sub-Section 6AA-East semifinals. In the first round, the Jaguars won at #4-seeded Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City in exciting fashion by a 64-63 score. NL-S went on to win the section title and finish third in the Class AA state tournament.

B-B-E was ranked fourth for the sub-section playoffs in the 2007-08 season but lost to eventual Class AA state champion Albany in the Sub-Section 6AA-East semifinals.

By the way...finally...I have the photo album uploaded from the section wrestling playoff match on Friday night:
