Golf squads ready for new season

After one of the snowiest winters in years, everyone was happy to see spring come to Minnesota at last. There are many signs of spring, including the first robin of the year, trees blossoming, and finally being able to wear shorts, but at the Albion Ridges Golf Course, a sure sign that winter is over is the sight of a yellow school bus parked out front. 
“It was so fun to be out there again,” said Emily Carey. “But at the same time it was stressfull because it was difficult to get back in the swing of things after being off the course for so long.”

Track squads set high goals for 2011

The days of snow angels and snowmen couldn’t fade away faster for the Maple Lake track team who look forward to the start of the 2011 season.
Although some spots have yet to be filled, the first weeks of practice have been successful thanks to last year’s completion of the new activity center which includes a triple jump pit, pole vault dish and other areas to practice events such as shot put, hurdles, and running.

Bidwell gets no-hitter for Irish

On Friday, May 6, the Irish left school early to travel to Bruten-Belgrade-Elrosa for two conference games. The team split the games with the Jaguars, losing the first game 5-2.
The Irish scored their first run in the first inning when Mitch Wurm reached on a fielder's choice. Soon after, he was hit around to score off a Derek Rachel double; Justin Bidwell followed with a single, but the Irish failed to capitalize with runners in scoring position.
