Fall sports are broken up

According to news from the MSHSL today, the fall sports season will be split up.

For the B-B-E Jaguars, girls' tennis is still being allowed, although I don't have official word yet on what we will do here.

The MSHSL voted to move football and volleyball into next spring (March to May 2021)...more details to follow.

I've been under the impression that if we lived a pretty low-profile summer, it would lead to being able to have fall sports (and school) ...but I guess I was wrong in having hope and faith in our leaders.

I'm pretty taken aback by this news and can't further comment publicly.

(VIDEO) Elrosa vs. Farming in SCL baseball action

Here's video from the bottom of the ninth inning a week ago, in Elrosa:

Jackson Peter closed out the game as relief pitcher for the Elrosa Saints, who completed the virus-shortened regular season schedule with an 8-1 Stearns County League record.

Elrosa begins the Region 15C tournament next weekend, Saturday, August 8 at 4 p.m. in Greenwald. Their opponent will be Lake Henry. The Lakers advanced through the play-in round game today by virtue of a 3-1 win over St. Augusta in Greenwald.

The Region 15C tournament continues on Friday, August 7 when Farming takes on the Watkins Clippers. That game is in Elrosa at 8 p.m. that night.

In Region 4C, the Regal Eagles will begin their quest for a state tournament berth as the No. 3 seed from the County Line League. They open regions at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 8 at Minnewaska Area high school's baseball stadium. Their opponent will be Raymond, the No. 2 seed from the Cornbelt League.

MSHSL to meet next week

On Tuesday, August 4, the Minnesota State High School League will meet to discuss their oversight and guidelines for fall sports across the state.

Locally, B-B-E schools will have information to parents sent out later in the day tomorrow, Friday, July 31.

Also, a special school board meeting will take place next Monday, August 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the high school library.

That's about all that can be announced at this point.

My two cents: get your fresh air, sunshine, Vitamin D, plenty of rest, drink lots of water...locally we can celebrate that our communities are in good standing health-wise. That can always change on a dime in this environment, so let's all do our part for continued good health!
