Busy day! ending at HOF banquet

From game two of the match against Alexandria today.
Coach Weller talking to the team between games one and two against Alexandria. The Cardinals won easily in game one by a score of 25-17 but lost to the Jaguars 25-22 in game two.

In a tournament loaded with talent and high-power teams from around Minnesota, the B-B-E Jaguars volleyball team went 2-2 today. All four of their matches went the full three games, culminating with a tough 15-13 game-three loss to Alexandria in the third-place match.

Dean DeKok speaking at tonight's HOF banquet in Padua. He is a 1962 graduate of Brooten High School.

Fast-forward a couple of hours, and I found myself at the Padua Pub taking in the first-ever Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa all-school Hall of Fame banquet. It was quite the event!! I have video to upload but won't get it posted until late tonight. I especially enjoyed meeting the HOF inductees who were present as well as their families.

Inducted to the B-B-E Hall of Fame are: Dean DeKok, Michele (Marthaler) Perkins, Dick Nelson, Sherwood Sagedahl, George Borgerding, Dennis Weimerskirch, Ralph Halvorson and the late Gregory Mohs.

Visiting with Margie Marthaler was a special treat!!! She has had a front-row seat to some incredible moments in Brooten Buccaneer school history.
