The Year That Was


Fri, Jun 28th, 2013
Posted in All Sports

Another school year is in the books. Another group of kids have completed their high school sporting careers. A host of good memories and experiences are finely etched into the minds of many young men and women. It all started back in the fall. Football and volleyball equally shared the Fillmore County sporting spotlight while a trio of Cross Country runners trekked their way toward state.

In the gym, four Fillmore County volleyball teams had successful seasons. Mabel-Canton (31-6) rode the efforts of SEC Player of the Year Belle Sand and setter Carly McCabe to another SEC title. The Cougars’ road then took them over the Taylor Case-led Fillmore Central Falcons (26-6) in the Sub-Section semifinals. An epic match between two excellent county teams saw M-C trail two-sets-to-zero, and 9-2 in set three, only to rally for the huge three-sets-to-two, comeback victory. FC’s great season ended their, M-C’s a game later versus Wabasha-Kellogg in the 1A East title game. The Coug’s weren’t the only county team playing in a Sub-Section title game. The Alex Duxbury-led Chatfield Gophers (21-10) again faced Caledonia for the 1AA East crown. Again, the Warriors came out victorious (they ultimately made it all the way to the state title game only to fall to Marshall). Meanwhile in Rushford, the R-P Trojans (22-11) didn’t make a post-season run (they lost in the opening round), but Amy Todd was a good as anyone in the 3-Rivers. The senior hitter led the conference in kills and aces. She topped 1,000 kills for her career in helping Trojan volleyball to a school-best win total. Two thousand thirteen will be the final go-around for All State Honorable Mention standouts Sand, Case, and Duxbury. Seniors, each will each look to lead their squads further into the play-offs, as M-C, FC, and Chatfield should all again be potent. The Gophers and Falcons should contend atop the 3-Rivers conference. M-C and FC may again have an epic post-season match-up in Section 1A East.

On the gridiron, running backs were the story in Fillmore County. Chatfield’s Jake Neis (just shy of 1,400 total yards, 16 total TD’s) led the Gophers to a 5-0 start to the season and a top 10 state ranking. Chatfield then played defending state-champion Caledonia very tough in the regular season (lost 6-0). The Gophers then ran off four more wins to force another match-up with the Warriors for the Section 1A title. There, Caledonia (the eventual state champ) proved its .....
