    .
  • This past week the Fillmore Central girls basketball team got a non-conference win over LeRoy-Ostrander (63-37) and a Three Rivers Conference win over La Crescent (53-44), but lost to state-ranked Lyle/Pacelli, (66-33).
  • Burro girls sweep Patriots, fall to Knights, Cougars
    The Lanesboro girls basketball team took one of three matchups last week, all on their home floor, falling to Kingsland 71-19 on Monday, Feb. 6, before completing a season sweep of Hope Lutheran 47-41 on Thursday. The week ended on Friday while being swept by first place to Mabel-Canton 62-47.

Coranda Vickerman broke the all-school scoring record (for boys and girls) of Steve Smith, set back in 2012, in a 62-60 loss at home to Class AA St. Charles on Monday, Jan. 30. 
  • Kendyl Bennett gets 1,000th point in win over Cardinals

  • FC boys start four-game week with win
    There surely isn’t much time for practice these days with all the games that need to be played. This past Monday the Fillmore Central boys defeated the La Crescent Lancers, 53-45, the first of four games for the week.
  • LHS girls cannot keep up with division leaders
    The Lanesboro girls basketball team had a tough schedule last week, taking on the two SEC division leaders.

LHS then played host to state-ranked Lyle/Pacelli on Friday, dropping that game 70-43 to the West Division leaders.

The week ended on Friday with a hard-fought loss at Grand Meadow, 60-57 in double overtime. The Burros began this week 10-5 on the season (6-2 SEC).
  • As has been the case all season, if the Wolves could just count the actual matches wrestled they would be over .500 in the won-lost column. But unfortunately it doesn’t work that way as forfeits count in the score.
  • The Mabel-Canton boys basketball team dropped two games last week, falling at Lanesboro 60-45 on Thursday, Feb. 2, before losing a non-conference game at Wabasha-Kellogg on Saturday 75-52. The Cougars sit at 7-14 overall (5-8 SEC). 
  • Broadwater gets triple-double as Falcons down Lancers
    After flirting with several triple-doubles, and even a quadruple-double (vs. St. Charles) in the past, senior Kenzie Broadwater finally nailed it: 12 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists, in a Lady Falcon win over La Crescent 65-46 Monday.
