Cougar Attacks in Fillmore County

There wasn't just one red, white, and blue Cougar in the 'Boro, there was a group of them. They're a formidable bunch. The M-C VBers kept up their undefeated ways, dispensing with Lanesboro. The first two sets were lopsided (25-9, 25-8). The Burros struggled to set up attacks. M-C had no problem (five gals notched more than one kill). The third set was more competitive (tied at 9), but M-C prevailed 25-16. Springy 5'6" OH Belle Sand was emphatic for the visitors, slamming down 15 kills. Rangy Christy Welscher had 8 kills, 2 blocks, and 4 aces. The Cougar team had 14 ace serves. Carly McCabe set the table (39 assists). On the defensive, Lanesboro's Kaia Hongerholt had 13 digs. Katarina Miehlisch (5 kills) and Bryn Harmon (4 kills) led the Burros on 'O'. Two days later, the Coug's were at it again. Neighboring rival Spring Grove was in town. The Lions took a (tournament) set from M-C earlier this year. The home squad, nevertheless, sent a message in the first game, out-killing the Lions 13-3, winning 25-13. In the second, the Coug's controlled throughout (only trailed 0-1 and 1-2) prevailing 25-21. Set three was ditto. M-C only trailed early before prevailing 25-21. Sand (17 kills), Lydia Geving (12 kills), and Welscher (7 kills) did the majority of the attacking. McCabe set them up (37 assists). M-C's defense was also strong; Sand, Geving, and Christine Lee 21, 10, & 11 digs respectively. Richell Mehus (11 kills) and Michaela Neuzil (2 K's, 5 B's, 2 aces) led the Lions (13-7) whose only two conference losses are to M-C.

Kaput-ziered

Broken, wrecked, and finished are English translations for the German word kaput. Leah Putzier is St. Charles' main hitter. When her 1-11 Saints took to the volleyball court against the 13-5 Gophers, and stunned them with a 3-2 victory, a new word was born; Kaput-ziered. Chatfield never really got rolling, dropping set one 25-18. They eked out the second game 29-27 before falling 25-19 in the third. Resiliency got them a win in game four (25-21). But then Ms. Putzier put a damper on the match, getting five (of her 21) kills, leading SC to the 15-9 fifth set/match victory. Chalk the loss up to homecoming week, an altered lineup, a rivalry opponent, and fallout from a loss to ultra-tough Wabasha-Kellogg (or all of the above). Gophers leave with 13-6 (6-2) record.

Immovable vs Unstoppable

It took all five sets to decide a victor. It boiled down to a powerful hitter versus a big blocking defense. It was a good ending to the match-up of top Three Rivers volleyball squads Chatfield and Fillmore Central. I .....

It wasn't necessarily an extremely important playin the football game. Given the end score, it wasn't necessarily of consequence period. It was the most memorable. It was perfectly executed. It definitely helped put one nail in Rushford-Peterson's c .....

Deja Vu?

Last year, Lanesboro made it all the way to the 9-man football state title game. The run wasn't without a couple early season bumps though. One came against Mabel-Canton in the season opener. To begin the 2011 season, history seemed .....

Summer may still be in bloom, but all the spiking and setting in the gyms, cracking and crunching on the fields, make it abundantly clear autumn is on the horizon. With that naturally come fall sports, with the gals getting things started first.

On the girl's end of the state equation, the Lanesboro gals can take solace in the fact that sub-sectional and sectional foe/vanquisher Lewiston-Altura was a worthy conqueror. The Cardinals convincingly, as in, by 46 strokes, prevailed as state Clas .....

For the Lanesboro boy's golf team, it was a give-and-take kind of season. They did so with non-conference rival Fillmore Central, finishing behind the Falcons twice early in the season, but besting them three times later in the season (handing them .....

With the state golf meets done, the 2010-2011 school year officially ends. And thus, my first 2/3 of a year venture into covering Fillmore County sports delays, until fall sports begin. It was enjoyable covering the area's athletes and teams. It was .....
