Wrestling update

The latest Guillotine state rankings were released over the weekend. The No. 2-ranked B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team has six wrestlers in the Top 10 of their respective weights. That is remarkable!

B-B-E is 21-2 overall with the most wins in any season in school history.

That's it for blogging for Monday, as I doubt I'll get much more posted here. We have to bring our 11-year old black lab in for non-emergency surgery with Doc Wohlin early in the morning.

Here's some very fun local trivia: the second starting pitcher for the B-B-E Jaguars fastpitch softball program was Toni Zehrer, who graduated in 1991 and pitched the 1991 fastpitch team into the District 20 championship game. That team was coached by Jerry Lindstrom and Brad Goodwin.

Toni Zehrer was the youngest of six daughters born to Doc Zehrer, the large animal veterinarian in Brooten over many decades in the last half of the 20th century. The second-youngest Zehrer daughter was Amy, who graduated in 1988 and played for Coach Greg Hagen's Buccaneers girls' basketball teams.

Doc Zehrer was a mentor to Doc Wohlin a "long, long time ago." It's a very safe bet that you can read more about this in the upcoming issue of the Bonanza Valley Voice newspaper.
