Gymnastics competes at home, Annandale

After so many meets where only two teams competed, it was a nice change for the gymnastics team to have a large invitational. On Saturday, December 18, Annandale held their Holiday Invitational with eight teams competing. It turned out to be a close meet, with less than 18 points between the best and worst scores. Becker finished first with 143.4 as their score. The Maple Lake Irish weren't too far behind, though, when they finished in the middle of the pack by taking fourth place with a score of 127.6.

Girls' basketball drops two games

The Irish began the conference schedule at home on Tuesday, December 14, against the Jaguars of Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa. 
BBE brought a record of 1-1 into the game and questions about who they were going to be as a team. Maple Lake was 2-1 and at the time trying to bounce back after a tough loss against Dassel-Cokato the previous Friday. 
As the game got underway BBE began with full-court pressure trying to force the Irish into turning the ball over. The pressure was not successful, but the Irish struggled to put the ball in the basket.

With another winter storm brewing, the Irish played the Chargers of Dassel-Cokato last Friday, December 10, at home.  
The game began as a tightly contested battle between two non-conference foes, but the physical play and pressure defense of D-C proved to be too much for the Irish to overcome.

Considering this, Maple Lake did pretty well, ending up with a total of 123.55 and Waconia earning 130.925.
