Saturday's playoff action (Boys'BBall game at 2 p.m.; wrestlers go at 10 a.m.)

Please pass the word that the boys' basketball playoff game starts at 2 p.m. tomorrow. The high school league had passed around a different time than the Section 5A there has been some confusion on that end. The GOOD news is, we know that it is at 2 p.m.! So please pass the word.

I will also find the wrestling schedule for tomorrow and get that posted here. ***I'll get that wrestling information up much later tonight. I am heading to Brooten Lanes to de-compress! It has been a day. I am tired of so much of the nonsense from the state. It is wearing on me.

*UPDATE: the wrestling action for state preliminaries starts tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Long Prairie. I will have more info tonight, including the list of Jaguars who have qualified.

Girls' basketball updates, etc. from tonight will be posted in a new blog post.

*Click here to view a web article from action held on Saturday, March 13 at West Central Area high school (short link) An extended version of that web article was published in the March 18 issue of the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper. You can watch a video clip from the BH/PP/Verndale match in that web article.
