Panthers go to 6-0

CULVER/McGREGOR/FLOODWOOD, Minn.— The South Ridge Panthers continue to roll and after a pair of wins over Mesabi East (7-4) and Silver Bay (12-1) are now 6-0 on the season. Panther head coach Tyler Olin shared that his pitchers continue to do an awesome job.

“We have a team ERA of 1.21 through our six games,” said Coach Olin, “but, I’d have to say I’m most proud of our defense. We have a team fielding percentage of .965%, making only five errors. Anytime you can pitch and play defense like we have been doing, you’ll give your team a chance to win, no matter who it’s against!”

The Panthers will most likely get tested at some point. They take on Cook County in Grand Marais and North Woods in Cook. “These games on the road won’t come easy,” noted Olin. “We also play Moose Lake/Willow River next week at home. We always look forward to playing Class AA schools, so we are excited for this.”

Mercury boys edge Crosby-Ironton, Cromwell-Wright at home meet

McGREGOR, Minn.— The McGregor Mercury boys track team started out the season with a bang. The team edged Crosby-Ironton (109.5 points) and Cromwell-Wright (103 points) with a winning total of 116 points.

Individual champions on the day were Cole Gelhar (100 meter dash); Bill Staska (1600 meter run and 200 meter dash) and Sasho Javor (High Jump). “Cole just dominated the 100,” said McGregor head coach Steve Frauenshuh. “Billy Staska won the 1600 meter run and, since he had an event left, jumped into the 200 meter dash and won that.”

It was also a great day for the relay teams. McGregor won the 800 and 1600 meter relays, placed 2nd in the 400 meter relay and 3rd in the 3200 meter relay.

“Our exchanges in the 800 were excellent,” said Coach Frauenshuh. “Jordan Mickelson led it off, handed the baton off to Ben Muller, then Cole Gelhar, and Sasho Javor anchored the winning race.”

Frauenshuh noted that the 1600 meter relay went smoothly as well. “They were led off by Jordan. Cole ran second leg, Carson Passer was third and Sasho anchored. “Great times and a great day,” concluded the coach.

Cromwell-Wright head coach Dave Foster was also happy with the day. “We were missing all of our 7-8 graders and three boy sprinters,” noted the coach. With the young ones there we would have been able to fill out the meet a ...
