    There’s no question this is a rebuilding year for the Lanesboro volleyball team, but the early season schedule is making it even more challenging. The Burros are still looking for their first win of the season after a busy week of volleyball.

    The team lost to the Rockets at Randolph on Tuesday, Aug. 29, by a 3-1 score (24-26, 25-21, 16-25, 21-25). That’s the only match in which the young Burros have taken a set.

    It was a nice win,” said coach Travis Malley.   “We improved from our first game, so that was nice to see. Kaelyn Marzolf had a really nice offensive night. Our defense continues to be our strength. This team is a fun team to coach.”

    The Mabel-Canton football team kicked off the 2017 season with a 50-22 home win against Granada-Huntley-East Chain/Truman in a non-sub-district game.

    The Cougar ground game was the catalyst as M-C scored on its first seven possessions while routing the Jaguars. The Cougars actually scored 7 of the 8 times they had the ball before Ryan Kuhn ran a kickoff back for the eighth touchdown.

  • The Lanesboro football team made plays when it counted, getting two fourth-quarter drives to hold off visiting Madelia in the season opener on Sept. 1. The Burros (1-0) never trailed but didn’t put the game away until Carson Schwichtenberg scored on a 1-yard touchdown run to make it a two-score game with about 90 seconds left.

  • The Fillmore Central volleyball team has eight players back that were listed on the 2016 roster.  While three of them played very little, or not at all, five of them have experience in nearly half of the sets the team played one year ago.
  • Fillmore Central football coach Chris Mensink, now in his 11th year, is looking forward to the 2017 season, and even though he lost 10 players from a 9-2 team, he’s optimistic and looking forward to another run at the section championship.
  • Experienced Cougars expect to keep winning
    The Mabel-Canton football team is preparing to kick off the 2017 season after posting a very solid 7-3 season last year (6-2 in sub-district, tied for 3rd out of 10 teams). They were the No. 3 seed in the section and won a quarterfinal round playoff game against Randolph (53-6) before finishing the season with a semifinal game against state-ranked Spring Grove (34-62).
  • The Lanesboro/Fillmore Central boys and girls cross-country teams are preparing to open the season this Thursday, Aug. 31. Burro coach Ellen Cullen said the teams have been busy putting in miles to get ready.
