BEMIDJI -- The successful winter for the Bemidji wrestling team continued Saturday as the Lumberjacks finished second at their annual Rick Lee Invitational. Badger-Greenbush-Middle River scored 194 team points and edged Bemidji, which tallied 186. Right behind Bemidji's heels was Blackduck-Cass Lake-Bena which tallied 179. Trailing the leaders were Blaine (133), Aitkin (132), Royalton (120.5), Cloquet (95.5), Columbia Heights (51) and Nashwauk-Keewatin (25).
DETROIT LAKES -- Detroit Lakes had the hot hand Saturday as the Lakers seldom missed a shot and the result was an 86-46 victory over the Bemidji girls basketball team in Detroit Lakes. "Before they put in the reserves in the second half I would guess that Detroit Lakes hit at least 65 percent of its shots," BHS coach Rick Kehoe said. In addition to nailing the majority of its shots from the outside the home team also enjoyed a height advantage in the paint and that one-two punch was more than the Lumberjacks could counter.
MOORHEAD -- Alyssa Allen placed fifth in the all around and Emily Howard was seventh and their contributions helped the Bemidji gymnastics team finish second at Saturday's nine-team Moorhead Invitational. Moorhead won the meet with 140.25 and Bemidji claimed second with 33.55. Fargo was third with 135.30 and Davies was fourth with 132.0. Trailing the leaders were Edina, Detroit Lakes, Morris, Moorhead junior varsity and Park Rapids. Allen scored 34.65 in the all around and Howard 33.55. Haley Gregg tallied 33.35 and Sara Erickson scored 32.95.
CHASKA -- The trip to the Twin Cities suburbs did not prove to be fruitful for the Bemidji girls hockey team as the Lumberjacks dropped a 3-1 decision Saturday at Chaska. On Friday the road trip began with a 3-0 loss to North Wright County in Monticello. "We had 10 penalties for 20 minutes Saturday and when you have small numbers on the roster, being shorthanded that much can gas out the penalty killers," said BHS assistant coach Kailee Jaeger. "We gave up one power play goal and Chaska scored the other two goals right after we had killed off a penalty.
BEMIDJI -- After a well-played first period by both teams that ended with Roseau leading 1-0, the Rams caught fire in the middle stanza, scoring four more times and forging a 5-0 advantage after 34 minutes. That onslaught stunned the Lumberjacks boys hockey team and its fans and vaulted the Rams to a surprisingly dominating 8-1 win over the Jacks at the Community Arena.
