Wrestlers thump A-C-GC

The packed B-B-E crowd was on their feet cheering wildly after Adam Jaeger won at 145 pounds.

The 15th-ranked B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team soundly defeated a very good Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City Falcons team tonight by a 39-21 score. The Falcons entered with an 11-7 overall record, while the Jaguars raised their record to 11-4 with the win.

The most exciting match of the night, one of many exciting matches actually, came at 145 pounds when No. 2-ranked Adam Jaeger (a junior) defeated No. 10-ranked Shane Whitcomb (a senior) 16-14 in overtime. The win was almost surreal, with the crowd going absolutely nuts in the third period as Jaeger climbed back from what was as bad as a 12-3 deficit. Jaeger entered the third period trailing 12-6. The score was 14-14 after the three regulation periods were complete.

Junior Leo Ziemer put an exclamation point on the win with a fall in 2:40 over Levi Schimschock at the heavyweight division.

Next for the Jaguars: a dual meet (part of what is actually a quad) at Royalton/Upsala on Thursday night. The Royals (12-11 overall) are having an excellent season and are a Section 5A opponent, so this match will count heavily towards postseason rankings.

In a home contest tonight, the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team lost 65-47 to Eden Valley-Watkins.

B-B-E boys' basketball 38, Pierz 16.


Eagles too tough for Jaguars

An incredible 17-point, 13-rebound performance by sophomore Macie Kirckof was not enough for the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team in their home game with Eden Valley-Watkins last night. The Jaguars trailed 32-17 at halftime and were unable to get closer than 12 points in the second half.

Kirckof was one of just two Jaguars in double figures. Hailey Braegelman had 10 points.

Final: EV-W 60, B-B-E 46. The Eagles are tough as nails this season. They recently defeated Watertown-Mayer out of the Wright County West Conference...W-M just defeated New London-Spicer last night by a 62-47 score in New London.

JAGUAR FANS! Come out tonight (Friday) to cheer on our B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team in their home game against Pierz. *And the B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team will be at the NL-S tournament that begins at 3:30 p.m. I am really hoping to get to both events tonight.

At Howard-Lake-Waverly-Winsted, the B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team lost a tough one 48-46. The Lakers had a 27-21 halftime lead.

At once-beaten Parkers Prairie, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team won in convincing fashion by a 45-24 score. The Panthers fall to 9-2, while the Jaguars are now 8-5. The 24 points is one of the best defensive performances in school history for B-B-E.

The schedule hasn't really let up around here. We put out a 12-page issue this week at the Voice and expect to do it again next week. I ask that everyone take the time to read my feature story on a Brooten woman who survived harrowing experiences in war-torn Europe in 1945-1946. It was one of the most difficult stories I've ever written. Her story includes many life lessons!!!

On Wednesday night this week, our news department will be covering a B-B-E "district goals" planning meeting for parents and community members. That begins at 6 p.m. at the high school. I plan on recording it on video, but not live streaming it. Stay tuned!

Ice cold

Bill Dean (left) and Don Leukam provided play-by-play coverage tonight at Kimball.

The B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team struggled all night in a 54-36 loss at Kimball Area tonight. They trailed 24-11 at halftime.

At Pierz, the B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team won 62-6 over Howard-Lake-Waverly-Winsted. In the second dual against the host Pioneers, the Jaguars lost 44-14 to get to 6-2 overall. Next is a Parents Night/Seniors Night home dual meet on Tuesday, January 17 against Benson, who is also a Section 5A team.

How is this for a very COOL piece of history! In this week's Bonanza Valley Voice that just hit the newsstands (Jan. 12 issue), I have a feature article on Mr. Wayne Schoeppach, who taught science from 1965 to 1992 at Belgrade, Belgrade-Elrosa and Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa schools. For a brief period early in his career, he also taught shop (woods) and coached basketball. Tonight I learned that in his second year at Belgrade (1966-1967), Schoeppach coached Bill Dean in seventh grade basketball.

Bill Dean (Belgrade Class of 1972) was in Kimball tonight broadcasting the game with his trusty sidekick, Don Leukam.

Quite a night of basketball

B-B-E's defense forces Kimball's Katie Merchant to dish out from the lane tonight.

The B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team picked up their third win of the season in exciting fashion by a 76-68 score in overtime at Swanville tonight.

A career-high 23 points from junior guard Parker Schwinghammer led the way for the Jaguars to the win after they trailed 39-37 at halftime. He was one of four Jaguars in double figures (Ryan Olmscheid, Evan Wiener and Ryan Illies). Another key statistic was solid 75 percent free throw shooting (27-of-36) helping counter Swanville's huge 35-to-23 rebounding advantage and 12-of-18 performance at the charity stripe. This was a gutsy win for the Jaguars, who were playing a second game in a row without the services of leading scorer Derek Wiener.

Swanville falls to 0-5 with the loss, while the Jaguars are 3-6.

Up next: a road conference game at neighboring rival Paynesville Area toorrow night (Friday, January 6)...the Bulldogs are 0-8, but make no mistake, they will be tough to beat on their home floor.

At Kimball Area in a key Central Minnesota Conference game, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team fell 57-49 to the first-place Cubs. After trailing by three points at halftime, the Jaguars pulled ahead 30-27 on a close-range jumper by Hailey Braegelman just two minutes in. Kimball Area regained the lead and went up by 10 points with 10:33 on the clock. From there the Jaguars got no closer than five points.

Time to upload some video from Kimball and check out the area scoreboard!

Area boys' basketball scores on January 5:

At halftime in Kimball tonight, the B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team trails 25-22. The Jaguars came out firing in the second half and forged a 30-27 lead just two minutes in.

Final score: Kimball Area 57, B-B-E 49.

A win and a loss

The Maple Lake Irish came back to win 58-54 over our B-B-E Jaguars boys' basketball team tonight. It was a one-point game in the final minute, but the Irish (3-4) canned the free throws they needed to get the win.

Here's video from the end of the first half of the girls' basketball game:

The B-B-E Jaguars girls' basketball team won 72-40 over Paynesville Area. After a fairly ragged first half, the Jaguars settled down and expanded on their 33-20 halftime lead. The Bulldogs (0-7) got as close as 35-27 before the Jaguars dropped the hammer on them.
