Quite a day!! It's been terribly busy in Jaguar Country, with my day beginning at the home elementary wrestling tournament. It was terribly exciting to watch our elementary wrestlers beat New London-Spicer 49-27 in the opening round!!
Fast forward to tonight and I was taking care of getting more coverage going on the B-B-E speech team...check this out!
In other news from today, and this is not a complete list...the B-B-E fifth grade girls' basketball Jaguars took first place at K-M-S. The 7th & 8th grade girls' basketball Jaguars each took third place in a tournament held at New London-Spicer.
This afternoon at the B-B-E high school, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team lost 64-49 to state-ranked and two-time defending Section 5A champion Browerville/Eagle Valley.
In the second game of the double-header, the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team saw their five-game winning streak crash to a halt after the state-ranked Browerville/Eagle Valley Tigers beat them 87-52. The first half was very competitive, but the second half belonged to the seventh-ranked (Class 1A) Tigers, who improve to 16-2 with the win. The Jaguars are 13-7 overall heading into a tough home game this Tuesday (Feb. 2) against Minnewaska Area.
**One important side note: the B-B-E/Paynesville dance teams will perform at halftime of the JV and varsity boys' basketball games on Tuesday. Come out and cheer them on along with our boys' basketball team!
Also, I am pleased to report that the second annual Anthony Tullis Ice Fishing Memorial tournament had a great turnout of people today on Norway Lake. They raised over $1,200 for their scholarship fund. Look for more coverage on that fishing tournament in next week's Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper.
