Letter winners lead South O'Brien girls (12/08/06)
PAULLINA - Five letter winners return to lead the 2006-2007 South O'Brien Wolverines girls basketball fortunes this season. They are seniors Jill Paulsen, Chelsea Tesch, and Lindsay Woolston; junior Carrie Egdorf; and sophomore Chelsie Rohrs.

Cherokee native guides Lady Pirates this season (12/08/06)
Ken Slater is the new principal at Galva-Holstein High School this year, and another of the Cherokee native's new duties is serving as the head girls basketball coach at the school.

New Pirate coach has four returning starters (12/08/06)
Bob Lee, the new boys basketball coach at Galva-Holstein, was certainly not faced with a bare cupboard when he assumed his new position this year. The Pirates return four starters and two other lettermen from last year's 16-5 squad, so if a couple of juniors or sophomores step up, the team should be pretty solid...
MMC wrestlers have new coach, 11 lettermen (12/08/06)
MARCUS - A talented group of 11 returning lettermen should make the Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn wrestling team one tough hombre in Northwest Iowa again this season.

Phillips is eager to continue that tradition, to say the least...

Inexperience haunts MMC boys basketball (12/08/06)
MARCUS - With just two returning lettermen, Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn boys basketball coach Al Vasher and Eagle fans every where are going to have to have patience as Vasher nurses the 2006-2007 squad through the rugged War Eagle Conference. The two returning lettermen - Tim Holmes and Nate Dammann - are also the only squad members with any extensive varsity experience...
Aurelia girls short on numbers, but optimistic (12/08/06)
AURELIA - The good news for the Aurelia Bulldog girls basketball team is that two starters - Emily Sonksen and Kristine Munden (a second team All-Northwest Conference pick last season) - return to lead the team this year. The bad news? There are only eight other girls in the entire high school who have gone out for basketball this season. Among the 10team members, however, are some pretty good athletes, with some good attitudes. So that's some more good news...
Aurelia boys return three varsity starters (12/08/06)
AURELIA - Aurelia's Bulldogs return three starters from last year's 8-14 varsity basketball team, including seniors Jacob Bruce and Tanner Winterhof, and junior guard Jared Bruce.
